Your challenge this week is to get your calcium.
We all know that calcium contributes to healthy bones and teeth, but did you know itís also a dieterís friend? I did some research. One study found that women that had the highest calcium intake lost the most weight and body fat on weight loss programs, regardless of exercise level. Another study indicates that high levels of calcium may prevent fat storage and boost metabolism.
You can easily track calcium intake by adding it to your nutrition tracker. Just go to your nutrition page and click on change nutrition goals. Click on add another nutrient to track and when the popup window loads, select calcium from the drop down list and click save. The popup window will close. Then just click save your changes on the nutrition setup page and you're set.
