The low-fat craze has ebbed somewhat in recent years as other nutrients -- primarily carbohydrates and, in particular, sugars -- have become the new villains of the diet scene. But many foods are still marketed with the claim that they are "fat free" or "low fat."

Mehmet Oz, M.D.

If you're already a dairy consumer, these and other studies suggest you don't stress over eating the high-fat versions. Eat what you like best, probably the good stuff -- as close to the natural version as you can get. And of course, as with all things, eat in moderation.

I call it gourmet because there's a lemon and wine sauce drizzled over the chicken before serving. To keep it skinny, it's fried in a very small amount of reduced-fat butter and olive oil.

Don't be fooled by the promises of riding your way to good health and a slim figure on a river of ice cream and butter. Stick with what scientists have known for decades: A low-fat, plant-based diet is decidedly best for our health.

Diet Research, Stuck in the Stone Age
