How Cheese Can Be Part of a Healthy Weight Loss Plan


Perfect Sized Cubes of Cheese

If you want to lose weight but enjoy eating cheese on a regular basis, you will be happy to know that cheese can be included as part of your healthy diet plan. While you will not be able to eat as much cheese as you may want and/or may need to forgo eating too much of the wrong types of cheese, you can eat cheese in moderation and still lose weight.

The types of cheese with the least amount of fat are feta cheese, goat cheese and part-skim mozzarella cheese. Feta cheese is an ideal salad topping; part-skim mozzarella is a great addition to an omelet and goat cheese can be used instead of cream cheese as a cracker or toast topping or for sandwiches. Alternatively, hard cheeses with a strong taste can be added in moderation to your favorite dishes to add additional flavor. A tablespoon of aged cheddar, parmesan or Romano cheese adds only 1.5 grams of fat to any meal. 

If you really want to indulge in a fattening cheese on an occasional basis, you can do so if you are willing to give up other (healthy) fattening foods throughout the day. For instance, a snack including cheddar or regular cream cheese can take the place of a small bag of nuts or avocado. 

Dieting does not mean eliminating all the healthy foods you enjoy eating from your meal plan. It simply means cutting back on junk food intake and eating healthy yet fattening foods in moderation. Cheese is good for you and eating some from time to time is fine even while dieting as long as you choose the right types of cheese and ensure that you not eating too many high-calorie healthy snacks.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
