I have several of my friends and relatives with the idea that if they are consuming milk with 1% fat, then they are avoiding the 99% of the fat in milk.

Here is the truth: whole milk contains 3% fat (so, the 3% is the  100% fat that is supposed to be in whole milk).  This means if you are consuming milk with 1% fat, you are avoiding about 66% of the fat in whole milk, and if you are consuming milk with 2% fat, you are avoiding only about 33% of the fat in milk.

Be smart.. Eat smart.. now that you know the fact… make an informed choice….Choose fat free milk especially when you want to control your weight.  Note: Fat free milk is not recommended for children.  and More important…. Children under the age of 6 months should be breastfed exclusively.

Today’s Tip: Be smart..

  • Balance your calorie intake with your physical activity
  • If you are overweight or obese, work hard to reduce your weight and stay at healthy weight

This is just a reminder: Remember, being overweight increases your risk of many types of cancers eg. breast and colon cancers.  Control your weight by making sure you burn more calories than those you eat.  Watch the portion size of the meals that you eat.. Go for small portion size, add more vegetables into your meals, avoid foods high in fat and high in sugar, limit or avoid alcohol intake, add exercise eg. working into your routine life.
