Coffee, soft drinks, teas and juices are most likely filling their glasses and cups with milk being the fifth most frequently consumed beverage -- only 14 percent of all beverage occasions. Including milk on the menu appears to make a positive difference. The report found that adult dieters who made drinking lowfat or fat f
