Snack on Milk
We're so used to taking our lattes "skinny" that if you don't, it almost feels as if you're announcing to the coffee shop that you'd like a mug full of fat to go along with that cookie you just ordered. But scientists have started to seriously question skim milk's health benefits. Switching from reduced-fat to nonfat milk hasn't been linked to weight loss, and, in multiple studies, children who drank 82-calorie skim were more likely to gain weight than those who drank the full-fat version. One explanation? Fattier milk increases satiety, decreasing the chances of eating something less healthy later on.
