2%. It just tastes better than 1% or skim. Taste is important and the calorie difference isn't super huge.

We only use 2% milk. I'd rather use the calories and feel like I'm drinking milk than settle for 1% or skim. They just aren't reasonable choices for my family and me.

I don't like skimmed milk, too watery. I stick to 2%.

I don't think that switching would be a problem. We have 2% and Whole milk in our family. The toddler needs the whole milk to help her put on weight. She is a skinny little one!!

LOL that is soo funny

I was raised on skim milk myself and after moving in with my now hubby, his family always was whole or 2% they refused to buy skim milk... I gawked at them.. but ya know what..

I rather drink 2%, whole milk or I even tried raw milk and I LOVED it... I would prefer raw milk over anything but at $7.00 a gallon, and we go through 4 a week (7poeple in the home) That is out of budget LOLOL

I would prefer 2% but my husband prefers 1% and we don't need two things of milk on the go. I grew up on milk fresh from a farmer, so we probably drank more like 6% once we skimmed off the cream for butter etc.

Haaaahhhaaaahhaahahahah MANDYTERRIER1. I totally agree. Love butter and whipped cream; can't drink 2% milk. What's up with that?

If you have room for it I think that it is a good thing to enjoy in moderation.

I personally don't like it, because it is like drinking butter. Which is funny because I love my butter.

I've been won over to the "dark" side and our family buys whole milk!

Wow, so I just had a glass of my roommate's with dinner since I'm out of my own milk currently, and I'm like seriously full off it. I grew up on skim milk and love it, but that filled me up like something else.

Perhaps something I should think about switching to maybe? I don't generally go over my fat ranges unless I'm grilling a nice steak for dinner, and sometimes have to remind myself to eat some almonds or eggs for a snack to bring my fat amounts up even.
