I grew up on skim so I like it and I am used to it. So much that when I would have the whole in kindergarten, it was a sweet treat! I am going to try unsweetened almond milk with sweet and low. My diet guru swears by it. Anyone try it?

I buy two percent. Its a good split for my children......I have one who is working to take some weight off (and she doesnt really like milk but will use it on her cereal to get her dairy in) and I have one who is super trim and works out both at home and with his school teams whose caloric intake to calorie burn rate should make us all jealous and it wouldnt matter what kind he has because he burns everything so quick but he prefers whole milk.........so we compromise.
My parents buy milk at a local dairy where it still comes in glass bottles. My mother claims she made her bottle deposit there in 1972. I don't know what they do to their skim milk, but I was in college before I knew that skim milk has a bluish tinge. And I had been drinking skim milk out of clear glass bottles all my life.
I've got the magic in me.

Watch your thoughts; the become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Fat free Lactaid or fat free yogurt 2 to 3 times a day for me.
JOVANB77, you might want to find another way to cut carbs! As women, we start to lose bone mass after 30 and the calcium in milk works wonders in preventing this. You don't want to wake up morning day with a hump in your back! (I know it's a bit dramatic but I hope you get the picture!)
