Drink Milk and Lose Weight?

Q: Drink Milk and Lose Weight?
I have been seeing more and more advertisements claiming that drinking milk promotes weight loss. What do you make of this? Are these claims based on studies? Are these studies valid?
A: Some evidence suggests that high calcium consumption in the form of dairy foods can promote weight loss, but that doesn??t mean that all you have to do is drink lots of milk. Here's the story:

Researchers at the University of Tennessee found that calcium stored in the fat cells of mice can help determine their metabolism. In one study, the researchers fed obese mice a high-fat, high-sugar diet for six weeks. The animals' body fat increased by 27 percent. Then the researchers put the mice on different low-calorie diets. They also gave one group calcium supplements, another group dairy foods, and the third group just the low-calorie diet. The mice in the third group lost only 8 percent of their new body fat; the mice that received calcium supplements lost 42 percent, and the mice that got dairy products lost 69 percent of the fat they had put on.
