Cheese

I've just posted this on another site and thought I'd post it here. Is cheese really bad as a fat/protein source as long as you factor in the calories? I know people will say "in moderation" blah blah but surely it's a natural product like milk + i've read Arnold and old tiem strongmen recommending eating it. Is it really much worse than eating something like nuts as a fat source?

    Cheese is good stuff! Sure it's high kcal but that's a good thing when trying to put on weight.

    depends on what type mate, the rosemary conley stuff is quite nice its 5% fat and a whopping 37g of protein per 100g! though i do prefer a nice bit of cheshire cheese with branston

    Its all good! I am a stilton fan myself, but even some cheap old cheddar is good for some kcals and protein on a budget.

    Cheers people. I'm trying to lean out but 20g of cheese a day shouldn't hurt if I factor it into my calories for the day. I wanna put some in my pita breads.

    I love cheese. I will not tolerate these crappy fiddled about with low fat versions, which in my opinion taste artificial, nasty and virtually tasteless.

    Give me my extra strong mature Cheddar oh YES

    Because it has such a strong taste you probably end up using less of it than the reduced fat versions.

    I have cheese now and then and I do not worry about it and yes it's the full fatty bom-bom version whoop whoop

    Agreed, very much so.

    Nothing wrong with cheese if you're sensible with it, although I wouldn't reccommend it for anyone on a serious cut.
