But after being followed for 6 years, families of men and women aged 18 to 64 years, they were able to retain only four acting directly on weight: a short sleep duration, low intakes of calcium, no restrictions in food and, conversely, restrictive eating behaviors.

Over the past decade, the researchers said, studies suggest that low calcium intakes increase the risk of overweight and stress the importance of a diet rich in dairy products.

Other micronutrients such as zinc, magnesium, vitamins C and E may also be involved in abdominal obesity.
