Milk, Cheese & Yogurt

Low-fat, calcium-rich foods can help you lose weight in the long term. A study in the British Journal of Nutrition found that obese women who doubled their daily intake of calcium from 600 milligrams per day to 1,200 milligrams over the course of 15 weeks lost an average of 11 pounds—without cutting calories!

In addition to building muscle, calcium will help you attain a strong, vibrant mane, because hair is almost all protein.
