I would really like to know if all you skim milk haters out there are drinking organic grass-fed milk or regular conventional milk?

I dare you to try a good quality skim milk - Organic Valley is a very good brand to try. Or find a Whole Foods and ask the dairy buyer for a sample of her highest quality skim milk. Prepare to be astounded at the difference.

Not all organic milks are the same. For example - Horizon brand organic milk is AWFUL. Seek out someone in the know and request a sample. You don't even have to buy it, just try it.

I totally agree. A good organic skim milk, like Organic Valley is really good.

DH drinks skimmed milk & I drink 2%, prob. not much of a difference, but to me there is enough of a difference that I continue to drink 2%. I've drank fresh cows milk, & don't much care for it. Never had almond milk,,, sure would love to try it, I will check in the grocery next time for it & give it a try.

I've totally given up 2%, 1%, fat-free, no-taste milk.

I'm letting my inner-Amish express itself.

Heaven.

So I'm thinking, what's society's obsession with skimmed milk anyway, though it tastes like crap. I mean come on, 60 to 70 cals of fat per serving is NOT gonna make anyone obese.

But I am wondering what the verdict here is? Would you recommend whole milk for any other reason other than the taste?

I grew up drinking directly from the cows in our farms. So, whole milk here is not even that close, but it's getting there.
Not a milk drinker. But if I were, I would only drink 100 percent raw milk. If I could not find cow's milk then I would drink goat milk.

That grocery store stuff is crap.

My husband and son drink milk with almost every meal and they drink 1%. I drink maybe two glasses a week. If I want non-black coffee I use whole cream!

I've been doing whole milk the last month. Haven't got any fat. In fact, I'm at the fittest state in my life at the moment And frankly, whole milk feels like the cow milk I grew up drinking. I used to squeeze the cow udder directly into my mouth. Good times.

I always drink whole milk or 2%. I consider skim to be EXPENSIVE water.

Im opposite to all you. I cant eat whole milk, but i LOVE skimmed one, I drink glasses of skimmed milk alone everyday and i love it. Whole milk taste its too fatty for me, i cant stand it.

Of course that if its in a cake or any sweet goods I eat it, but i dont buy it (i dont cook sweets cause i wanna stay in shape) and most people here dont buy the whole milk either, must people buy skimmed one.

Maybe what we call "skimmed" milk here is what you call 1% or 2% or whatever, cause it says "parcially uncreamed milk" not totally uncreamed.
