If you believe low-fat products are better for you, think again.
In the 1980s, the food pyramid told us to eat low fat since it was better for us. Manufacturers developed products that exchanged fat for sugar to build up the missing flavor and texture. The result is an increase in diseases such as diabetes.

Drinking whole milk is much tastier in my cappuccino and cheese while high in calories is delicious without being part skim. Foods rich in dairy fat tastes better, even though they are higher in calories.
