Cottage Cheese & Quark, huh?

I've just been to Tesco on my way home and bought some Cottage Cheese and some Quark (which i'd never heard of before, but saw mentioned in TT's guide). So a step in the right direction.

But a bit confused. Both of these are virtually fat free soft cheeses, so what's the importance of them in the diet, as i thought for bulking one should consume fats and cabs too, which these cheeeses, as far as i can tell, have little of. Sure they have protein, but the meats and such are giving enough of this, so i was just wondering why so many posts mention cottage cheese.

    They slow release protein ideal for eating before bed and times you require a slow release of protein in your system.

    As above, it's a relatively 'clean' source of a high protein food. And it's casein based.

    Cool stuff. Fully understood.

    I also have my shakes with whey AND micellular ceasin in them which the latter is more slow released. But i'll deffo start having an intake of the two cheeses now you've explained. :)
