US: Dairy farmers say drink milk to lose weight

In a press release issued on 5 Jan 06 the USA Milk Processor Education Program stated:


"When women diet they often make two big mistakes that can actually result in weight gain - skip breakfast and ditch dairy," said Somer, author of the new book ‘10 Habits That Mess Up a Woman's Diet’. "But in reality, eating breakfast and including 24 ounces of milk each day are two small steps that could make a significant difference in achieving a healthy weight."  (Source:


This logic is ludicrous.  Skipping breakfast may not be a good thing, but it does not follow that consuming milk for breakfast helps keep a healthy weight!  The evidence that dairy milk causes surplus body fat and obesity is absolutely overwhelming, and to suggest otherwise simply reflects vested interests.  Any food high in saturated animal fat is fattening, period.  Low-fat milk is even more fattening than regular milk:  as explained in The Milk Imperative, this is so for a variety of reasons that have been proven in numerous research studies.
