What is the differences and Health Benifits between 2%, Whole, and Skim Milk?
I’m working on a research paper about dairy products and I’m having trouble finding the differences and health benifits with 2%, Whole, and Skim Milk.
When ever I do a search on the internet all I get are recipes… So what are the differences and health benefits?
P.S. If you reply I’ll give you an invisible cookie. It should arrive at your house in four to eight years unless you live in the United States, then it should take about forty years to arrive.

Whole milk is what is called a complete food, because each ingredient plays its part. Without the fat, you can’t digest the protein or absorb the calcium. The body needs saturated fat in particular (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat can’t do the job) to take in the calcium that makes bones strong. Milk fat also contains glycosphingolipids, which are fats that encourage cell metabolism and growth and fight gastrointestinal infections.
The all-important vitamins A and D are found in the fat. Historically, whole milk and butter were the best sources of these vitamins in the American diet, which had up to 10 times more of both vitamins than modern industrial diets.
In skim and low-fat milk, the vitamins are removed along with the fat, so dairies add synthetic A and D. But Vitamins A and D are fat-soluble; that means they cannot be absorbed into the body unless they’re taken in with fat. Thus, even fortified skim and low-fat milk are not nearly as beneficial as the real thing.
What about recommendations that we should drink low-fat milk to prevent heart disease? A federal study released last week, the largest study of its kind, found that low-fat diets do not prevent heart disease.
Instead, scientists are increasingly finding that whole milk and saturated fats have been given an undeserved bad rap. Many experts say the evidence blaming saturated fats for heart disease is surprisingly weak. Indeed, the main effect of eating saturated fats is to raise high-density lipoproteins, or H.D.L., the so-called good cholesterol. And with H.D.L., the higher, the better. In 2005, researchers from Llandough Hospital in Cardiff, Wales, released a study of Welsh men over 20 years that found that subjects who drank the most milk (both whole and low fat) had a lower risk of heart disease than those who drank the least. ‘The present perception of milk as harmful in increasing cardiovascular risk should be challenged,’ the researchers concluded.
Nor does whole milk cause diabetes. Diana Schwarzbein, a doctor in California who specializes is endocrine and metabolic diseases, found that Type 2 diabetics got worse on the recommended low-fat, low-saturated-fat, high-carbohydrate diet.
Whole milk doesn’t make you fat. The main dietary causes of obesity are white flour and sugar. Sugar is stored in the body as fat. Even white bread provides a big shot of glucose-just like a sugary soda. In fact, the calcium in dairy foods enhances weight loss and reduces blood pressure (the calcium in tablets doesn’t have same effect). For most children, the best source of calcium is milk.
I have a life long dream, how can I achieve it?
So I’m doing a law degree in Cardiff and I really want to be an Employment Lawyer or a barrister and that’s that.
But, my dream is to be a dietitian. I know exactly what I’m talking about when it comes to food, weight loss, nutrience, vitamins, etc. I think i’d be very good at that. But I understand there’s very low pay if you become a dietitian. I was wondering if I could possibly become a dietitian within spare time or take an early retirement to persue this. If I did have the time/space to do it, just how?

It’s no lawyer type of pay but it’s usually a lot less hours and the pay is pretty decent. I find that it’s higher than the reported average. Many in a clinical start start around $60K. With some years and specializations it goes in the 6 figures.
If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing and you know what you want, then pursue that.

I don’t believe in short-term weight loss programs. Even if you are successful in losing weight through a few weeks or months of a diet or exercise routine, you put it back on as soon you go back to your ‘normal’ lifestyle. That’s why it’s much better to make long-term lifestyle changes that you can live with, for example:
Eat more fruits and vegetables; cut unhealthy fats and sugars, reduce processed food; eat slowly and in small portions…
Make some exercise part of your routine, whether it’s walking, jogging, swimming or playing your favorite sports a few times every week…
Learn to sleep well; reduce stress; maintain good posture…
Know your ideal weight, considering your height and structure, and figure out the calories you can consume, considering the amount of exercise you can do. (Tough one!)
Having said all that, there are times when one needs to get rid of a few kilos quickly. I usually maintain my weight at 75 kg. But every once in a while, I find myself guilty of putting on an extra kilo or two. And for such occasions, I have figured out a diet that helps me lose one kilo per week, without starving or intense exercising.
During my recent trip to Dubai, Saudi and Cardiff, I let my guards down and ate big breakfasts, lunches and dinners; I didn’t exercise at all. I put on 4 kilos in 10 days! Here’s the diet that got me to lose the 4 kilos in 3 weeks:
First breakfast around 7 AM: A glass of juice made from one apple, one carrot and one orange
Second breakfast around 9 AM: A glass of skimmed milk and a banana
Snack around 11 AM (if hungry): A handful berries or grapes
Lunch around 1 PM: Any vegetable or beans salad, sometimes with tuna or salmon, but without any dressing. Or a vegetable sandwich
Tea/coffee around 3 PM: With skimmed milk, without sugar
Snack around 5 PM: Mixed nuts, unsalted, unprocessed, with raisins
Dinner around 7 PM: Whatever has been prepared for the family meal – usually a curry of vegetables or beans or lentils, sometimes fish or chicken, minus the bread and rice.
6-8 glasses of water during the day
No food allowed after dinner – home-made yogurt or a handful of dates when really hungry. It’s best to sleep early.
What about exercise? Just the usual 45-minute walk at night, plus a 2-hour hike once a week. What about dinner parties? Lentils, vegetables, salad, yogurt with a bit of chicken or fish – but no bread or rice.
I am not qualified to advise on food and nutrition, but wanted to share something that always works for me. It may or may not work for you, but what’s the worst thing that could happen?
