    I won't eat margarine, butter only, but even that sparinly. I like less processed foods for the most part.

    Cheese, milk, half-n-half (yes, they do make fat-free half-n-half), mayo, and butter. I just use less.

    Low fat cheeses and non fat milk- one exception being non fat milk steamed and frothed in a latte.

    Full fat cottage cheese always....mainly because there is no such thing as good tasting 0% cottage cheese. I can not say the same about greek yogurt though (plenty of good zero fat greek yogurts, even plain flavored!)

    Zero fat cheese =/= real food...doesn't even know how to melt correctly (it's a chemical abomination & a poor excuse for "food")

    Interesting, I like the reduced fat or low fat cottage cheese. Non fat, I think would be gross.

    I refuse to use low fat margarine. It does not melt in to toast; it soggifies toast.

    100% this

    It also doesn't have much taste. I can use a smaller portion of real butter and have full butter flavor for the same or less calories.

    Me too. I'm currently doing a diet experiment where I'm consuming only full fat dairy, but I really don't have a preference for full fat cottage cheese vs. 1 or 2%. I never buy 0%. I also like 0% or 1 or 2% greek yogurt just fine. (And no, there's no sugar added to plain lowfat yogurt as someone suggested upthread. That's a claim that gets made but is not true.)

    I would not buy lowfat cheese or ice cream.

    I definitely would not buy lowfat mayo, because mayo should be mayo -- I don't really like mayo, admittedly, and typically make it if I use it.

    I make my salad dressings and often make a lower fat version by using more vinegar and less oil or using vinegar + mustard (although I usually do use a little oil).

    Can't think of any other products I get that come in a lowfat version. (I will buy leaner cuts of meat.)

    I don't like non fat or low fat cheeses, with the exception of low fat cottage cheese and ricotta cheese. I use reduced fat milk and sour cream. I'm not a yogurt fan but if I do eat it it's usually a non fat Greek variety. I use butter not margarine. And reduced fat peanut butter is just wrong.

    I prefer full fat for everything, however dairy in general is ok lower fat other than cheese (I don't consider cottage cheese in that category). Lowfat cheese is an abomination. I'd rather have less of it, than low fat.

    I dislike all forms of fake sugars, even the ones created from natural forms (such as Truvia) so I'd rather do without or eat less of food items like ice cream that contain them.

    Can not tolerate low fat mayo or dressings either. Again, less of the real thing is better than.

    I don't mind most reduced fat dairy products. Not a fan of non-fat unless it's yogurt. Probably the only thing I won't touch is low fat ice cream. Not for me.

    I choose to reduce my consumption rather than switch to a lower fat version of most things.
    I don't know that I would refuse to eat something at all just because it was reduced fat.
    There are a couple of salad dressings that are lower calorie and I assume lower fat that are tasty.

    Cheese and sour cream. Fat free cheese is just sadness, and the organic reduced fat sour cream at Whole Foods tastes gritty to me. It's not worth saving the measly 20 calories.

    Low fat creamy dressing, creamy soups, and sour cream are a no from me. Now I just use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, but all other low/non fat alternatives are fine to me.

    Low fat cottage cheese has a nasty texture in my opinion. Other than that I don't mind a lot of light stuff, and it can vary across brands too. Fage 0 tastes like nothing, but the Open Nature same is pretty good.

    I try to avoid all low fat anything. Good food fat is not the enemy. It can't be avoided with some things (like shredded mozzarella), but I try not to get anything that says low fat.

    Cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, most packaged foods. I tried reduced fat Doritos once, they had absolutely no flavor and picking them over regular Doritos saved less than 50 calories. Not worth it. I will eat reduced fat cheese if it's getting melted into soup or chili but not in a sandwich.

    I'm with you on this.

    Everything on my Thanksgiving table. It's one day and it will be full fat, full flavor.

    Reduced fat grated parmesan cheese tasted like sawdust to me. I eat the regular.

    It's the taste for me. I don't mind fats at all, but the low fat monterey jack I bought tasted like...nothing lol, and the others...well, I love to taste and enjoy my food, a bit too much sometimes. :D
