Dairy: Low-Fat Yogurt

Grab a snack that works with your diet, not against it. According to a University of Tennessee study, because increased calcium levels trigger the body to quit storing fat and start burning it, those who include three daily servings of nonfat or low-fat dairy, such as yogurt, into their already reduced-calorie diet are more apt to lose weight than those who don't. Just choose wisely. Many yogurts have added sugar so look for "light" or plain versions.
