I have been drinking skimmed milk for a while now as I wanted to try and lose some fat.
Even though I have increased my running distance I have not lost any fat but to be honest it's only a vanity thing as I do plenty of running and eat well but have a bit of a belly.
I had believed that there was a reduced level of nutritional content in skimmed milk as the process of skimming it removed some of the nutrients but I was amazed to find that whilst this is true for a small number of nutrients (such as Vitamin C - skimmed has half as much) some nutrients are actually HGHER in skimmed milk (e.g. potassium). How can this be?
Anyway the good news is I can stick to skimmed milk as I won't be losing out on any nutrients that I don't get much of elsewhere in my diet).
Here is the report on the nutritional content that I got the info from (and there's a lot of good stuff in milk!)http://www.milk.co.uk/page.aspx?intPageID=197
