McMaster: Two glasses of milk a day after weight-lifting routine helps tone muscles and keep the fat off in women, claims a new study. "Resistance training is not a typical choice of exercise for women," says Stu Phillips, professor in the Department of Kinesiology at McMaster University. "But the health benefits of resistance training are enormous: It boosts strength, bone, muscular and metabolic health in a way that other types of exercise cannot."
"The women who drank milk gained barely any weight because what they gained in lean muscle they balanced out with a loss in fat" said Phillips. "Our data show that simple things like regular weightlifting exercise and milk consumption work to substantially improve women`s body composition and health." Phillips`` lab is now following this study up with a large clinical weight loss trial in women. The McMaster study appears in the June issue of Medicine and Science in Sport and Exercise.IANS
