Calcium is an essential element in bones and this necessary mineral is abundant not only in cheese and milk, but in green leafy vegetables, fish, meats, and beans. However, some people are allergic or sensitive to dairy foods and need to avoid them.

Calcium is important in the prevention of osteoporosis, but researchers are now also looking at the relationship between calcium and weight loss. It was determined that low calcium intakes in women corresponded to a high body weight.  Evidently, the women who were studied substituted calcium-rich foods and beverages with carbonated beverages such as soda. In another comparative study, children whose diets were supplemented with calcium gained less fat than children did on a standard diet.  It is believed that without adequate body stores of calcium, the body cannot properly metabolize fat.
 
However, new data from a long-term study suggests that an association exist between consumption of higher quantities of dietary calcium and risk of prostate cancer. According to the researchers, these findings, presented at the 91st Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), are consistent with the hypothesis that calcium may lower the body's levels of a D vitamin shown to be protective against prostate cancer.

With the information being so new regarding calcium and weight loss, a person should probably limit calcium usage for weight loss and seek the advice of a health care professional for more information.
