I’ve always drank whole milk throughout my life. I remember having a bad feeling in my stomach after drinking whole milk. I was always told that other types of milk had a very nasty taste, so I didn’t try any others. When I got older I gave soy milk a try by putting it in my cereal, and I liked it. Recently, I’ve consistently been drinking 2% milk. I must admit the taste is ok and my body feels fine after I drink it. This post will help you decide which type of milk might be best for you.
Contains 1% of milk fat
23% of its calories are from fat
Contains 40% less fat than semi-skimmed milk
Has lower levels of vitamin A and E
Has a higher calcium content then semi-skimmed milk
Contains 2% of milk fat
35% of its calories are from fat
Can help you get used to not having whole milk but shouldn’t be a permanent substitution due to the high fat content, unless you have a low fat diet.
Non-fat or skimmed milk
Most fast is removed from this type of milk
Doesn’t have more than 0.5% milk fat
Only 5% calories from fat

Not such a great taste
Only 80 calories
Comes in many different flavors
low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free
So now that you’re better educated on some of the different types of milk available, which one will you choose? Let me know which type of milk you drink now, and which kind you plan on trying next. Until next time, drink up!
