FINALLY, I have come up with a way to stem my cheese addiction. It is so very basic and easy I wish I had thought of it before.
Measure out your maximum amount of cheese you are allowed for the whole week and keep it in a container in the fridge letting anyone else know to keep their mits off. This makes it sooo much easier not to go over your goals as you will look at the shrinking piece of cheese and realise that you need to eat less if you want some tomorrow too.
This works with other problem foods too - anything else that you have a real tendency to over do it with. Try measuring out your chocloate / cheese / bacon / whatever your addiction is. But stick to it - once it's gone it's gone! You will soon learn to eat smaller amounts.

Romano Cheese is saltier than Parmesean. Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Brie and Camebert cheeses are aged with penicillin, so if you are allegic to penicillin these may not be the best choice for you. Blue cheeses tend to be salty and sharp and get a smell that resembles stinky feet because of the mold & bacteria that grows on the cheese. When eating any of the blue cheeses remember the salt & your blood pressure. Try Munster, and there are 50 calories in the Low Fat, Low Salt Swiss.More in comments
Freindship brand has a no salt added cottage cheese. Alpine Lace has 3 low sodium versions, mozzarella, fresh goat cheese, and fresh ricotta.
Cottage cheese is low in fat and carbs & very high in protein. Cottage Cheese with fruit, Cottage Cheese on a bed of lettuce, Cottage Cheese in salad with flaxseeds, cottage cheese with chopped oinion and parsley flakes, cottage cheese w/matchstick carrots It's a great diet food. Lots of Calcium and Protein just chose the low fat version.
I eat lower carb to control Type 2 diabetes (successfully!). My breakfast is frequently 2 bran wafers with cheese. I discovered that Neufchatel cheese is very similar to cream cheese but lower calories and fat. For a 2 Tablespoon serving, Neufchatel Cheese: 80 cal, 1 carb, 6 Fat, 2 Protein. Cream Cheese: 101 Cal, 1 carb, 10 Fat, 2 Protein
The downside is that neufchatel can be difficult to find. My local Giant carries their own generic brand next to the cream cheese.
