Whole fat dairy is the key
I know dairy isn't for everyone. But for me, it fills a satisfaction slot, provides fat and nutrients like vitamin K, and is a fermented food I like. Sour cream dressings are great with steak. I can make a meal of shrimp, cheese, and dill pickle in a way nothing else satisfies.

So this new study,Dairy Foods, Obesity, and Metabolic Health: The Role of the Food Matrix Compared with Single Nutrients is very reassuring.

The present evidence suggests that whole-fat dairy foods do not cause weight gain, that overall dairy consumption increases lean body mass and reduces body fat, that yogurt consumption and probiotics reduce weight gain, that fermented dairy consumption including cheese is linked to lower CVD risk, and that yogurt, cheese, and even dairy fat may protect against type 2 diabetes.

Based on the current science, dairy consumption is part of a healthy diet, without strong evidence to favor reduced-fat products; while intakes of probiotic-containing unsweetened and fermented dairy products such as yogurt and cheese appear especially beneficial.

I lean toward goat cheese and pastured and/or raw milk varieties, too. Expensive, but so much more flavor a little bit goes a long way.

The article points out:

However, advances in nutrition science have demonstrated that foods represent complex matrices of nutrients, minerals, bioactives, food structures, and other factors (e.g., phoshopholipids, prebiotics, probiotics) with correspondingly complex effects on health and disease.

I come from many centuries of herding culture. They seemed to do okay in a challenging environment :)
