Frenchi, What do you mean by "better or worse"? Better or worse for what? Are you dairy intolerant? Are you thinking about calories?

Goat dairy products are easier for our bodies to digest (generally) than cow dairy products. But if both are from reputable sources then they are both good. If you aren't battling any specific intolerance then my 2 cents is to eat both; variety is a healthy thing.

I love any kind of cheese I can get whether from cow, goat, sheep, camel--whatever! (I haven't actually ever had camel cheese but I would try it in a flash!). For me cheese is a magical thing!

Brie is amazing!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Thank you for the advice! I love good cheese, and I have to be careful and moderate myself!

What about goat cheese? I've heard that it is better/worse than cow's milk cheese, so I don't really know if I should try to switch to goat cheese or not?

Well, except that I forgot to ditto Laura who mentioned portion control. That PC stuff is important for any of us who are trying to lose weight or maintain the weight we've lost.

GOOD cheeses are good to eat. Gotta define "GOOD" don't we?
1) is real cheese, not pasteurized processed gunk (American cheese, Velveeta, the gross stuff that comes in a can)
2) comes from milk that comes from cows not treated with growth hormones (rBGH) or antibiotics)
3) is organic and preferably grass fed if you can possibly get it
4) from a locally run dairy if you can possibly get it

I think most of the "good" cheeses that are dyed orange (cheddars) are dyed with annatto which is a natural and harmless but silly additive. Read the ingredients label to be sure.

I never say "use in moderation" because to me that seems like such an undefinable and even useless term. I like to say "in balance" because it means not to eat too much of any one thing but to balance the diet with a variety of foods.

Eat good cheese
Eat in balance
Eat good food period

Thanks Laura! That is what I do 99.9% of the time. Once in a while I get an urge for Sharp chedder but I am getting better at that!
Thanks again emoticon

I think most cheeses are ok. Portion control is key! Cheese is dense in calories.
I stay away from orange cheese (it's a dye), and any type of processed cheeses (American cheese, cheez whiz, cheese slices). Also, cottage cheese is quite high in sodium, but that may not be a problem if the rest of your diet is good.
