Milk...It Does a Body Great
I think milk is a perfect food. It is perfectly balanced and incredibly good for you! I have had some questions regarding the difference between whole, skim and 2% milk on the Zone. Whole milk and 2% are pretty balanced as they are. The ratios of fat to carbs to protein are almost perfect. However, if you are drinking 1% or nonfat milk you will need to add fat in some other area to balance out what you are missing in the milk fat. Milk is a great addition to an afternoon or late night snack, but make sure if you are being strict that you count each cup of milk as 1 block of each marker. Drink up and post thoughts to comments!
