Background: Currently obesity is considered a public health problem, and in most countries has evolved as a pandemic, an increase in prevalence and severity. Objective: To summarize systematic reviews Cochrane and not Cochrane and not evaluating the effect of calcium supplementation in reducing body fat in obese people. Material and methods: A search was performed in the Medline database (1980-September 2015), Meabuscador Tripdatabase and Epistemonikos (until September 2015), Cochrane BVS (to September 2015), was hand searched journal/issue interest searched conference proceedings, monitoring was conducted relevant references and contacted experts in the field. Results: The preliminary search yielded a total of 7163 articles potentially eligible, according to the eligibility criteria include two systematic reviews of randomized trials. Conclusion: Calcium supplementation apparently would be effective in reducing body fat, DM -0.51 (-1.27, 0.25); (p = 0.19), presenting "low evidence," according to the GRADE methodology, this means that "it is very likely that additional research have a significant impact on the confidence of the estimate of effect and is likely to change".
