Below is a link to an article about no-fat vs whole fat dairy. Not just for diabetics, it will make anyone looking to cut fat in their diet to loose weight, think more about it (medical reasons being the exception).
Nix the Nonfat Milk, Chuck the Lowfat Cheese
This article relates to eating vegetables with fats........
What could be more nutritious than a bunch of raw vegetables? A bunch of raw vegetables with some guacamole to dip them in, that's what. You see, most vegetables are fat-free. That's what makes them so popular with dieters. You can eat piles and piles of carrots, celery, cauliflower, broccoli, and peppers without consuming any fat or lots of calories.
But you'll actually get more nutrition out of those vegetables if you eat them with a little fat. That's because many of the most valuable nutrients in vegetables are what we call fat-soluble (or lipid-soluble) vitamins. These include vitamin A, which protects your eyesight, vitamin K, which builds healthy bones and keeps your heart healthy, as well as beta carotene, lycopene, and all the carotenoids, which fight free radicals and ward off cancer.
Why Some Fat is Good
These nutrients don't contain any fat themselves. But in order to be absorbed into your cells, where they can do you some good, they need to hitch a ride on a fat molecule.
Isn't this the greatest news you've gotten all day? Eating your spinach sauteed in a bit of olive oil and garlic or dipping your carrot sticks in peanut butter is actually much better for you than eating them plain. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition reported that when researchers added avocado to a salad, the subjects absorbed up to 15 times more fat-soluble nutrients than those who ate the plain salad. (Now that's the sort of medical research I want to do: the kind that involves guacamole!)
As with any diet, moderation is the key to loosing or maintaining your weight.
I have always been a fan of Weight Watchers who preaches moderation.
This is my opinion and was not compensated by anyone.
