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!
