The age range was 26-55 years with an initial BMI of 30-40kg/m², low calcium intake (<600mg/d), low dairy intake (< one serving/d), which was determined by a screening process of two weeks in which the baseline diet was assessed. Participants were excluded from the trial if they did not meet certain criteria, such as not using antidiabetic agents or insulin and no malabsorption syndrome. For both trials, body weight and waist circumference were measured weekly with constant clothing requirements, and body fat, blood pressure, circulating insulin, glucose, and lipids were measured at baseline and weeks twelve and twenty-four.
