Q: What's the difference between 1 percent and 2 percent milk?
A: More than you think. Fat percentages of milk are based on weight, not calories. Two percent milk has way more than 2 percent of calories from fat - it's more like 35 percent. One percent milk gets about 21 percent of its calories from fat. Skim? Zero calories from fat.
