Best Low Fat Cheese Choices

You may have thought that cheese has to be entirely avoided when dieting, however, this is thankfully not the case! Cheese is a great source of protein, minerals, calcium and phosphorus – however it's also a source of saturated fat. Like most good things, cheese is best enjoyed in small quantities! In America we tend to be heavy-handed with cheese when it's better for our health to enjoy smaller portions. How should you change your relationship to cheese when dieting? Now is a great time to become a cheese expert.
What does that mean? Head to your local cheese shop and research new cheeses, select flavorful aged cheeses that you don't need much of to enjoy the taste and begin to incorporate and use cheese in your diet in a new way. Consider buying authentic Parmesan, Asiago, Gorgonzola and sharp cheddar. Just because a cheese says it's low fat doesn't mean you should eat the whole form, these cheeses tend to have less flavor and a rubbery texture, chances are you'll enjoy the real deal much more and appreciate even eating a smaller portion.
