They devised an experiment to test phosphorus supplements in a group of 47 overweight and obese individuals, ages 18 to 45, with a body mass index (BMI) of 25 and above.  The participants were divided into two groups, one that took a 325-mg supplement at the main meal, and the control group, which was given a placebo.

 

After 12 weeks, the group taking the supplement had lost an average of 1.43 pounds, as well as more than an inch from their waist.  They also reported needing less food to feel full. In contrast, the placebo group gained an average of 2 ½ pounds, the report said.
