I have to admit, I melt at the creaminess of full-fat yogurt. It’s an indulgence that we’re told to resist. And I try to abide. (Stealing a bite of my daughter’s YoBaby doesn’t count, does it?)
The reason we’re told to limit dairy fat seems pretty straightforward. The extra calories packed into the fat are bad for our waistlines – that’s the assumption.
But what if dairy fat isn’t the dietary demon we’ve been led to believe it is? New research suggests we may want to look anew.
