Cheese is one of the first things people cut when they start a weight-loss program. But although the food is high in calories, a new study suggests that dairy could actually help with weight loss and overall health.
The study, which was conducted in Ireland, reviewed 1,500 adults, noting their dairy consumption and comparing it to their health. Study participants kept a food diary in which they recorded everything they ate over the course of four days. After the fact, researchers checked their cholesterol levels and similar metabolic health problems.
