    between diet and exercise when it comes to obesity? Sorry about that. My point is that the 150 calories that aren't spent doing 1950s style housework isn't all that significant.

    Sure, I am no longer running around like I did back in the 50s, when I was 8, but my mom is not feeding me toast and jam, pancakes with butter and syrup and a large glass of milk for breakfast either.

    Just dropping from three cups of whole milk per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner, when you're a kid) to under half a cup of skim milk (when you add it all up) in my coffee now-a-days more than compensates for burning 150 fewer calories each day.
