Most low fat and fat free foods are high in sugar. However i'm told these are better choices when it comes to dairy. Should i eat whole or low fat?

Opinions, opinions: I don't think it will matter too much - so a big part of your answer will be which you like better. Also different brands can differ.

Not that Simple: Endurance, slow twitch, red muscles (eg. Cardiac muscle) primarily burn fat.
