What to Eat: More Cheese, Please!

Cloned, packaged queso is so cheesy. "Consumers want an artisan-quality product now, bursting with flavor and creative flair," says Peggy Smith, cofounder of the California-based "cheesery" Cowgirl Creamery. One thing that hasn't changed is the fat content. Your serving should be no more than two ounces, Zied says, about the length of two fingers. Pick only two or three varieties, so as not to provoke your appetite.


229 Calories 19g Fat 12g Sat. Fat
Chevre 207 Calories 17g Fat 12g Sat. Fat
Brie 189 Calories 16g Fat 10g Sat. Fat
Swiss 215 Calories 16g Fat 10g Sat. Fat
Gruyere 234 Calories 18g Fat 11g Sat. Fat

Mozzarella (whole milk)

170 Calories 13g Fat 7g Sat. Fat
Blue 200 Calories 16g Fat 11g Sat. Fat
Gouda 202 Calories 16g Fat 10g Sat. Fat



Your Best Choice?

Fresh mozzarella is the lowest in fat and calories, but its mild taste may not satisfy your craving. "All the varieties here are good sources of protein," says Zied. Gruyere, Swiss, and cheddar contain the most calcium.

Great information to reinforce my thinking about the holidays! One can enjoy, but as always in moderation, and be sure to get in a workout, first thing in the a.m., otherwise too many excuses if postponed. (I, myself, have been a jogger for over 40 years, raised a family, a grandmother and in my 70's! This has been my mantra my whole life!)

i like that they ended on a positive note. I think self-esteem is such a huge part of loosing weight. As soon as I started REALLY valuing myself and started having fun I stopped obsessing over foods and the pounds melted off. Love yourself, love food--go overboard on the former not the latter :)
