8 Green Ways to Lose Weight Without Dieting or Exercise

4. Lose Weight by Drinking Milk

Need to depuff your belly pouch? Drink a glass of milk (or 3). Researchers at the Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee discovered that adding 3 servings of dairy to a reduced-calorie diet can significantly improve weight loss. How? It's believed that the combo of calcium and dairy helps accelerates the metabolism, which in turn increases your fat burning potential. In order to avoid the hormone-pumped white-stuff that has been the center of all sorts of health-risk speculation, choose organic milk—locally produced if possible. To further promote fat burn, choose milk from grass-fed cows as it's believed that they produce milk richer in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)—the fat that has been shown to burn fat at a higher rate.
