    Your body is more satisfied by food in its full form, where if you had low fat or no fat alternatives your body will probably want more and more to get satisfaction. Or you just wouldnt feel guilty having more of a low fat or no fat alternative so are more likely to eat more.
    Totally agree! No low fat here either, and I'm slim. Small portions of everything is the key.

    I think even though skim has less fat than full cream it has slightly more sugar and salt and less vitamins so in theory it's not really healthier?
    I agree with pp, non homogenized is far better as the high heat treating kills any real benefit of milk anyway

    We have full fat i could never go back to skim milk .
    I grew up on skim milk then when i met dp he always had full cream and then i was converted and ds has never had skim milk.
    Though we buy marg as i do like butter but do prefer margarine.

    I leave skin on fruits (well kiwi fruit and apples etc) and veggies, use mainland butter soft (it's the purest one I can find) kept in the bread bin - tastes sooo much better than Marg! And full cream of sour cream, normal cream, milk (I get pure organic unhomogenised) etc. I agree with natural state like PPs. The reason why low fat alternatives are marketed even by dietitians is because we are becoming overweight and obese more and more like America.
    Processed food is bad
    However DH is on skim as he is on a diet. If I was overweight I would also swap. It's all about balancing your food groups and making good food choices.

    E.g. Can't buy a maccas meal with a diet coke lol makes no sense to me!

    If one has weight issues surely low fat is better than keeping/gaining weight?!
    SKIM MILK HAS ADDED SUGAR

    This is how it was explained to me. If you look at the nutritional panel of skim milk you will see that there is added sugar. 4.7g per 100ml (sugar) is accounted for by lactose. Anything above 4.7g is added sugar which does not naturally occur in milk. Full fat milk normally has anywhere from 4.7g-4.9 per 100ml.
    The skim milk in kitchen has 5.3 grams per 100ml. Which means 0.6 grams of added sugar.

    Still following me? So if the average latte is 300ml and I have skim milk I am consuming 1.8 gr of sugar more if i drink skim as opposed to full fat milk.
    If I have 3 lattes a day thats 5.4 grams of sugar per day than if I had full fat milk. Over a year, that would be nearly 2kgs more of sugar per year than if you had full fat milk.

    In addition, I am beliving some of the new popular theories that sugar makes people overweight not fat that makes one overweight.

    I am currently undertaking an 8 week experiment. I am 2 weeks in. I have cut out all sugar. Except that which occurs naturally as lactose in full fat dairy and the small amount present in wholemeal bread.
    I am hoping to loose 3 kgs.

    Sent from my GT-I9100T using BubHub
    Real butter can just be kept on the kitchen bench. It does not need to be refrigerated. Always spreadable then

    I just checked my milk it has the same amount of sugar

    Maybe I should use full fat as I'm only using 150ml max a day
