Whole Milk and Cheese R4 Losers

Sick and tired of slim milk and low fat cheese? Guess what! Your suffering and sacrifice have been in vain: in fact, you may be bigger than you would have been otherwise. According to the Svenska Dagbladet, a new study by Stockholm's Karolinska Institutes researchers indicates that eating whole milk and cheese will help reduce obesity. Based on the interviews of almost 20,000 women whose eating habits had been tracked for a decade, the women who routinely imbibed whole milk or enjoyed regular cheese had a lower BMI (body mass index) than the others in the group. According to the study, a daily glass of whole milk will result in a 15% less weight gain whereas a whilom wedge of regular cheese will result in a 30% less weight gain. Professor Alicja Wolk of the Karolinska Institute stated, "The surprising conclusion was that increased consumption of cheese meant that overweight women lost weight." Bon appetit!

In light of their findings, our society, who approves only of women who resemble refugees from a Concentration Camp, needs more cheese.  Our family is, like Wallace and Gromit, 'just crackers about cheese' and milk, for that matter.
Hold on, I'll be right back
I have to cut the cheese...

J, I intend to try that whole milk and cheese diet out. I love both: perhaps, I'll see a dimunition in my poundage. What do I have to lose? :-)

Whole Milk and Cheese are for "Losers?"  But I thought that you like whole milk and cheese....I also thought that..........wait a second, I get it....."Losers" in the sense of "losing weight."

Carry on, then sir, carry on!

I intend to mention the study to my doc who would like me to consume the dairy products that are basically bereft of flavor. Btw, no wonder the lovely French girls are lithe and lissome.

Lithe and lissome?  Isn't lissome a derivation of lithesome?  

I guess this adds new meaning to the pejorative "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" -- to which the French might say, "and your point is?"

Jo and James,
I think the point is that it's okay to like Reubenesque women!
Why have a mini-bike when a Harley is available?

Joseph, I believe that you are correct as to the common etymological origin of lithe and lissome. I'm not sure that I would characterize the bon vivants in such a manner--certainly not their comely elles. We can't forget our forebears.

Jon, I agree with you: there is nothing wrong with appreciating a Rubenesque beauty with a fuller figure. I'm not sure that one would appreciate your Harley reference, tho: remember its unflattering moniker if applied to a miss or missus.
