If you enjoy eating cheese, be sure to make a wise selection as some cheeses have more calories than others.

Dairy products in general tend to be a good source of protein. Protein is a wonderful nutrient that supports weight loss. It helps us to reach satiation as well as build muscle tissue. Cheese can thus be an amazing source of protein.

Cottage cheese

Cottage cheese for example contains protein together with some carbohydrates and a little fat. Be sure to read the nutritional labels on the various cheeses the next time you go shopping. Learn more about the fat, protein and other nutrient content that the different types contain. This can help you to make better decisions and to choose your cheese wisely.

Cottage cheese is a delicious cheese that can be enjoyed in various ways. You could for example prepare cottage cheese and cucumber sandwiches or even have the cottage cheese on whole-wheat crackers. If you haven’t had it before, give it a try! You will absolutely love it!
