Dairy foods for weight management

Steve: "Dairy consumption per se has no clinically meaningful effect on energy balance to promote weight loss." 

You would think this quote came from an independent scientist or a a person who is not swayed by the dairy industry. However, this comment, published in an editorial in the September issue of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, was written by Thomas AB Sanders, a member of the Scientific Advisory Panel of the Global Dairy Panel. 

Sanders goes on in his editorial stating, "Butter should be used sparingly. It remains sensible to limit full-fat cheese to less than one ounce per day and to limit the amount of cheese in processed foods like pizza."

Sanders is right on, although, I can't help but wonder if his days on the dairy-backed advisory panel are numbered.
