Holiday Party Guide: Eat, Drink, and Still Be Slim
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.

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.
