How much is a lot? If you are just eating a serving a day you should be fine. Try to stick with the low fat cheeses if your worried about the extra calories. And it also depends on what your goals are.
If you’re on a low carb diet, you shouldn’t be eating low fat cheese. The fat in cheese can be utilized as energy.
OP, I’ve been on and have had success with all different types of low carb diets, most recently a strict keto. Cheese is always a staple of my low carb diets, it’s high in fat and protein, both of which one needs when going very low carb.
do you know what the definition of “diet” is (when used in this context)? what good is going low carb if you simply replace those calories with fat?
Yes, while it’s true that the fat in cheese can be utilized as energy on a low carb diet, the point of a diets isn’t to use dietary fat for energy; the point is to use BODYFAT as energy.[/quote]
I never said to replace carbohydrate calories with those from fat. I simply am under the impression that while on a already kcal restricted diet, a higher amount of fat would equal an even lower amount of carbohydrates, assuming protein stays the same. If the OP needs X grams of fat a day, why not use cheese as a source?
