New and more effective nutritional measures are urgently needed for the prevention of obesity.
The role of Ca and vitamin D in obesity has been recently implicated.
Low Ca intake and low vitamin D status have been linked with an increased risk of obesity in epidemiological studies;
however, clinical intervention trials designed to test this association have produced controversial results.
The suggested anti-obesity mechanisms of Ca and vitamin D include the regulation of adipocyte death (apoptosis), adipogenesis and lipid metabolism.
Dietary Ca has been also shown to increase faecal fat excretion.
The potential role of Ca and vitamin D in shifting energy balance towards a more negative state is an area of considerable interest.
Ultimately, a review of recent research findings does not allow the reaching of a definitive conclusion that increasing Ca intake and rising vitamin D status will influence fat mass and body weight or decrease the risk of obesity and overweight.

Previous studies have shown that about 30% of women lose weight with enough Vitamin D is given with Calcium.
Wonder if this study had a similar result.
Wonder about weight loss association with Magnesium and Iodine as well RTF file

OBSERVATION: About 30% of obese quickly lose weight when they take >2000 IU of vitamin D and 750 mg Calcium
Women lose weight, men have not been tested
