    Personally I don't think you can tell it's skimmed with the powder in, but then I don't mind skimmed milk. I usually chuck it in the blender with a few ice cubes and it thickens up quite a bit ;)

    i use the 1% milk as i dont like skimmed and saves me remembering to buy it in so the whole family uses the !% stuff so its economical for me

    I'll buy a pint of skimmed and give it a try later on, I suppose it's a good thing I've got it on hand to lower my calories if I get stuck though - same amount of food but a few less cals. xx

    Skimmed. I can't drink any other milk, I've been drinking skimmed milk for about 15 years (and I can't stand full-fat coke either, why am I so fat??? lol) and I'm so used to it any other milk just tastes like cream to me, even the 1% stuff. Skimmed milk has TWENTY times less fat in it than semi skimmed!

    15 years is a lie, thinking about it, it was ten-and-a-half years ago, when I went on a diet before my wedding when I started drinking skimmed milk lol

    Full fat milk tastes creamy to me, but skimmed tastes like dish water... however! 20 times more fat in semi skimmed might sway the vote haha x

    Heh just checked the cartons in the fridge and it is 0.1g/100ml in skimmed and 1.8g/100ml in semi, so it's only eighteen times ;)

    I thought skimmed was thin and horrible when I first started using it but I got used to it quite quickly and it just tastes 'normal' to me now, I just tried some semi now as a test and yep, too creamy lol

    Ony 18 times eh? I've told you a million times not to exagerate! ;)

    Well the scales havn't shifted for a few days (although the inches are) so when my milk stash runs low i'll get skimmed. x

    im like you Jim, Semi Skimmed is just too creamy for me now, makes me heave, we only have skimmed in the house now ( poor hubby!) but when i go and stay with the parents they only have SS and my dear mum ALWAYS tells me to 'use half the normal amount with some water in it'.....no mum, it tastes wrong. lol.

    Maybe you could have more calories? If youre in it for a steady weight loss, not fast, you could probably afford to go up in cals at the start. x

    I use skimmed with my shakes. Never used to be able to stomache it, always complained it tasted like water. Now its what i prefer. You really cant tell either.
