Do you drink milk?


I was just reading this article about how milk drinkers may have a healthy weight advantage... I started thinking..a lot of people I know who drink milk with meals are thinner. I grew up in a rural part of Upper Michigan, where milk was just part of the meal time ritual. However, so were meat and potato meals with bread and real butter. The funny thing is... I didn't have a REAL weight problem until I moved out.


Just food for thought!

I HATE milk. I can't stand the smell of it or taste of it. If I put in cereal, I pour it off the spoon before I eat it.

Interesting. I don't drink much milk, but I eat cheese and other dairy products. I know what you mean about the "farmer's" diet. My grandparents were farmers and they always had bread and butter and meat and potatoes. They probably maintained a normal weight because they were so active.

I am like Kim - yuck to milk for the most part, especially on cereal. BUT I do like chocolate milk, and it's a great snack.

I think the reason the farmer's diet works is because of the lack of processed foods! They may have eaten meat, potatoes, bread, butter, milk, etc. but they didn't eat granola bars, packaged cookies, sugar cereal, frozen dinners, and so on. I'm of the opinion (cuz it's so important, right???) that it's those things that are the problem.
