Question Whole fat milk for weight loss?

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/201...y-keep-us-lean

While I don't know whether this is a real effect or not, my one piece of anecdotal evidence is that my rail-thin daughter eats a bowl of ice cream each night. OTOH, when I was having full-fat cream in my coffee instead of NFPM, my weight loss stalled.

What are your experiences?

I've been reading the same kind of articles claiming that skim milk makes us fat, and I'm totally intrigued by it. I've been a skim milk drinker forever, but I use real cream in my coffee. I just don't have the courage to drink whole milk because of the difference in calories and fat. I've tried, but then I cave and buy skim again. I'm so afraid I'll gain weight. But I think I'm going to at least try drinking 2% milk instead of skim and see what happens with my weight. I tried the fat free half and half, but I just can't get over all the additives in it. I read the book called "The Fat Fallacy" by Will Clower and it makes a lot of sense. He says we should eat real cheese, use real cream and drink whole milk.....but in smaller portions. (That's the bummer part of the book.)
I wish there was some real hard evidence on this subject because the real thing does taste much better!

I always eat whole-milk dairy, mainly because my husband will not touch anything reduced fat, and I don't feel like buying two different milks, ice-creams, etc. I don't know if it has made a difference, but I've maintained my weight for more than two years now.

it's a super interesting story, and makes sense to me. I think that for now I will stick with low fat during my weight loss just to curb calorie intake, but when I reach my goal I will switch to whole dairy products and intuitive eating.

I think the idea is that when we try and eliminate all fat out of our daily diet, one can end up consuming more calories in carbs because they're craving fat.

Another thing worth noting is that they have to add more stuff to nonfat milk than whole milk. Just look at the labels of milk, yogurt or sour cream. They add stuff to the nonfat versions that they do not have to add to the whole; namely synthetic vitamins. I do not believe in synthetic vitamins. I believe in eating a well rounded diet.

Could be a simple as an awareness that what one is eating is whole fat and therefore has more calories than low fat, and one compensates for those calories elsewheres in one's diet?

I don't what's better for weight loss, but I eat and drink what I like. Full fat cheese and butter. Fat free Greek yogurt and skim milk. Half and half in my coffee and reduced fat sour cream and cottage cheese.
