EUROPE – Research out of Europe is sparking some interesting Dinner-time conversation.

It might sound counter intuitive, but studies found drinking fattier milk may actually help people lose weight.

Researchers found middle age men who consume whole milk, butter and cream were less likely to be obese than those who drink skim.

It’s unclear why, but one theory is whole milk could make us feel more full and less likely to eat more.

But Dr. Thomas Kottke, a health partners cardiologist says hold on.

“There’s a lot of thin people who have heart attacks.”

He says whole milk’s saturated fats put you at greater risk for heart disease.

Your best option, according to doctor Kottke… choose skim milk.

He also says following a diet of mostly vegetables, fruits, nuts and fish is the best way to stay thin and reduce your risk for heart disease.
