I am a twenty-five year old female in good physical shape but am trying to eat more healthy. I currently drink 1% milk. Is there enough fat in there to really make a difference in switching to skim milk?Monday, February 7th, 2011
2%, 1% and skim milk are all considered low fat so no need to switch. The difference between 1% and skim per cup of milk is only 1 gram of fat or 9kcal. Remember some fat is necessary in our diets, we need it to help absorb fat soluble vitamins and it is a dense source of energy.
