Weigh in on Your Diet
Did you know? There's a strong connection between what you weigh and your overall health. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is an important part of staying healthy. It's not about fitting into a specific dress size or about struggling to reach a number on the scale. It means having a weight that is healthy and a shape that's right for you.
That's why it's important to be smart about your food and beverage choices – including drinking milk. Drinking 3 glasses of lowfat or fat free milk a day can help you get the calcium, protein, and other nutrients you need when you're counting calories.
The trainers on The Biggest Loser are working with the contestants this season to encourage three glasses of lowfat or fat free milk a day for good reason. When you're cutting calories and working out hard, it's important to include lean protein in your diet, like fat free milk, that can help build muscle while you're losing fat. What's more, including milk on your menu may help you avoid two common problems linked to cutting calories – loss of bone density and muscle mass. Milk helps supply the calcium to keep bones strong and the protein to help build muscle (along with exercise).
