Cheese?


Wednesday, December 15, 2010

When I ask my overweight clients what their favourite foods are, very often comes the reply cheese.

In small amounts cheese is ok, a source of protein and calcium, and a source of intense taste pleasure.

But it doesn't take much for it to become a source of excess body-fat.

I eat cheese occasionally, sometimes for dessert after making a meal for friends, we dig into some cheese and biscuits and fruit. Red grapes, apples and pears go very well.

Would love to hear your views on cheese.......

    I really don't get people's fasination with cheese! lol I would never in a million years just eat a piece of raw cheese! (When I say 'raw' I mean not melted on anything, like a pizza). I don't think I have ever just cut off a piece of cheese and ate it! And with fruit??!! What is that about? How on earth does cheese go with fruit?!

It's very strange to me. I also think all cheese, apart from maybe mild cheddar cheese, is horrible! hahaha I know I am in a major minority on this issue (maybe that's a good thing?) but I just don't get it.... emoticon

    I love cheese - but have learned to moderate it
We went to a Christmas party last year, I chose the cheese board for desert, and managed to stick to a small slice of stilton.
I find that I choose stronger cheese, in smaller quantities now, with the power of spark.
I've been for christmas lunch today and picked the goats cheese and portobello mushroom starter - wonderful, enjoyed every bite. It took a while to eat which just shows how far I've come in 18 months!
I can have a little of what I fancy.... yay me!

    I agree with Hanoverlady - I know it's the cause of a lot of health problems, but a cheese cart instead of a dessert cart is a thing of beauty! I am also more in love with cheese than chocolate, and gladly do extra miles and workouts to enjoy it. My doctor determined that my elevated cholesterol is likely due to genetics, since I changed my diet drastically and it's still high. Yes, I have to take statins now, but in my own sadly cognitively dissonant way - I see it as a license to eat more cheese! LOL

Healthy is better, but life is short and must also be enjoyed.

    Oh, my gosh, cheese - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! It's a bigger struggle for me than chocolate (which I also love). Before I started using Spark, I would sometimes eat an entire wheel of brie with little else. I'm trying to put a portion of cheese on a plate in the kitchen and eat it with low-fat crackers or fruit so I feel more full and don't binge on cheese. My best friend, also a chocoholic, told me once she is also more tempted by cheese than even chocolate. (And this is the woman who was given a ten pound bar of chocolate and wouldn't share!)
