They had to meet certain criteria, such as low calcium intake (500-600mg/d), no recent dramatic weight or exercise change, no oral antidiabetic agents, and no pregnancy. The subjects participated in a 24-week diet plan and were randomly assigned to one of the following diets: control group (500kcal/d deficit, 0-2 dairy/d, 400-500mg calcium/d, and daily placebo supplement), calcium- supplemented diet (500kcal/d deficit, 800mg calcium carbonate supplement, total 1200-1300mg calcium/d), and high dairy diet (500kcal/d deficit, 3 dairy/d, 1200-1300mg calcium/d).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
