‘Skinny’ milk – disgusting AND fattening

My family loves great cheese and high-quality food in general, and consequently we’ve always pooh-poohed low-fat products – mostly because many such foods are highly processed and stuffed full of sugar or artificial sweeteners to compensate for their reduced fat content. Recent research appears to back up our dislike of low-fat products with evidence that they don’t achieve what they’re supposed to. A study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Primary Health Care shows that middle-aged men who consumed high-fat dairy products were much less likely to become obese than men who never or rarely ate them, and a meta-analysis of 16 observational studies published in the European Journal of Nutrition found that high-fat dairy was associated with a lower risk of obesity. Something else to celebrate with cheese!
