This morning I'm thinking about milk.
Many of us have semi skimmed milk because we don't want the fat content, right? We settle for semi-skimmed because full skimmed is more like white water and tastes horrible. Semi-skimmed doesn't have that much flavour either - but with all the talk about obesity & mustn't eat/drink fat la la la .... semi-skimmed it is.

And guess what? The vitamins and essential stuff in milk is in the fat content bit. For the fat content in milk to affect your weight (i.e. the bit that stays in the body and puts fat on, as opposed to being processed as nutrients or expelled) you would have to drink at least a gallon of milk a day.
By drinking semi-skimmed milk all we are doing is removing the essential stuff we need - and denying ourselves that lovely creamy taste of full milk on our cornflakes of a morning.
So, since last week we've stopped having semi-skimmed in my family and gone back to "real" milk. Breakfast is now enjoyable again; tea and coffee tastes better (especially coffee) and I'm drinking more glasses of nice, cold, milk. Lovely.

Anyone know of a good milk only diet?
Thank you for visiting - come back soon!
