Maintaining a healthy body weight is important for your overall health and wellbeing. A balanced diet with regular physical activity is still an ideal way to help manage your weight. A 250mL serve of PURA Tone is a no fat milk that contains less than 0.15g fat per 100mL with essential calcium and nutrients needed for healthy weight management. PURA Light Start is just 1% fat with a great refreshing taste.
Dairy and Weight
Some people mistakenly believe that all dairy foods are fattening, removing them from their diet when they are trying to lose weight. Eating too much of anything, without adequate physical activity can lead to weight gain!
Exciting research shows that a balanced kilojoule diet, rich in dairy nutrients may actually help with achieving a healhy body weight. There are many nutrients in dairy foods which are important for a healthy weight management plan. In particular, protein may help you feel fuller. Low GI foods may also help keep you feeling fuller for longer.
The National Health and Medical Research Council Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Overweight and Obesity recognise that higher calcium, reduced kilojoule diets may be beneficial for healthy weight management, particularly dairy calcium.
Milk is a nutritious and important part of a balanced diet. If you are watching your weight simply choose low or reduced fat milk like PURA Tone or PURA Light Start to help you keep your fat and kilojoule intake down.
