    I buy the Dairy Farmers "New" milk.. It's their 2% fat milk. If the shop doesn't have it then I will buy full cream. I don't like Trim/Skim milk as it is basically like watery milk. I have to be careful with full fat milk though as it can be a trigger for my IBS, which is not enjoyable!

    Full fat in our house. I'm the only one in the house who consumes milk. I'm not loyal to cow's milk though, I occasionally buy oat, almond or soy.

    I have a dash of it in coffee and use a bit for cereal, that's it.

    Cheese is my main source of dairy, full fat there too.

    I know full fat is better for all the reasons listed here in the thread and from following a LCHF diet.

    But.... I can not stand the taste of full cream milk, I gag and it is just gross.

    So we have both in our house. Full fat for everyone else and skim for my coffee.

    That is because the fat component is removed so obviously the percentage of everything else is increased

    Default Full cream or skim - which is better for us?

    Which is why nutritionally , I believe, its no better than full cream , the good fats are taken out, the sugar increases - so really your left with just saving a few calories but because the fats taken out you won't be as full so may tend to be hungrier

    Thank you for all the info everyone! I am now a full cream drinker lol. And after putting it in my calorie counter this morning I can see it's hardly any extra calories anyway
