I think milk is known to stimulate/increase insulin beyond the simple effect of the sugars it contains. Mark has written an article about this:
I saw that article, but Mark didn't go into the glucagon response, which can also be quite high.
I don't know of any studies, but full fat dairy can really add up calories.

IIRC, a lot of the low fat milks out there contain added sugar to make them more palatable. Unfortunately, that's usually the low fat and non-fat milk that gets the most added sugar.
Not sure which dairy products the OP is asking about, so I'm not sure if that would be relevant.
Inflammation appears to be behind a lot of weight gain. If you don't fully tolerate dairy, it will cause inflammation. Might be low level and only manifest as weight gain although eschewing it for a month then reintroducing generally provokes a reaction if you're sensitive

Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

I have no problems with it but my hunch is that people new to shopping and cooking will come home with a pile of butter, cream, and cheese but not sure what reasonable measurements looks like. Tablespoons are our friends.
