    You couldn't be more wrong. Fat doesn't make one fat, overeating does.
    Settle down, Beavis. Fat has more calories per gram than protein or carbohydrates do, and so you can pack more calories into a smaller item. A handful of almonds, for instance, is absurdly caloric. Fatty foods are not remotely filling, either. A lot of them are also salty, which increases your chances of eating too many of them. (Salted almonds are a big culprit here). Now, I would agree with you that 100 calories of X = 100 calories of Y, provided you are at a net surplus of 100 calories for the day. But you'd have a far easier time getting to that 100 calories if you ate fatty foods versus non-fatty foods -- with some notable exceptions, of course.

    Why is it good for your johnson and ballsack?

    LOL, that's just a line I wanted to throw in there. Since I am part of the DT Everywhere campaign, I need to keep all threaks outside of DT a little bit DTesque.

    One time I ate a bowl of baby carrots with half a tub of nonfat sour cream with French onion dip mixed in. It was coming out both ends for days.

    And then what did you do with it?

    There is something better.

    1% Whipped Friendship Cottage Cheese. Tasty with a way better macronutrient profile than Greek yogurt. That said, it does not taste as good, but is significantly better than other cottage cheese brands.


    Where 2 kop?

    I just stocked up on Fage 0% plain yogurt; Whole Foods had 4 6oz containers for $5. So good in the morning or just whenever you start to feel hungry.

    I prefer sheep yogurt. Most of the greek yogurt sold in stores tastes like toothpaste or something.

    Friendship is based in NY so it'll be less likely to be distributed out West. 4% is still the king. You ever try the 2% with fruit in them? The pineapple ain't half bad.

    I believe the appropriate response is "duh". [​IMG]
    The solutions to the "issues" you mention are human behavioral ones, not the fault of the food.

    As far as fatty foods being not remotely "filling" - you shouldn't eat to be "full"- when you get to that point you've typically already eaten too much.

    Just picked up some of that "Skyr." Love the nutritional facts as I HATE the taste of cottage cheese.. but the stuff is damn expensive, $2.50 a cup here at Central Market in Austin. There doesn't seem to be an alternative brand to this Siggi's stuff, but I'd certainly welcome it if the nutritional facts are similar. Will be eating it for my mid morning snack tomorrow- I'm sure it probably tastes pretty similar to greek yogurt, and I've eaten a lot of that lately.

    The first thing you will notice is that it is a lot thicker than Greek yogurt. It has a consistency somewhere between Greek yogurt and cream cheese. It also tastes creamier than Greek yogurt, and IMO, fuller. It's amazing that the fat-free version tastes as rich and creamy as it does. Technically, I think skyr is closer to a cheese than a yogurt on the spectrum of dairy products. It's almost like a mascarpone.
