Example

By choosing 1oz fat-free Cheddar cheese instead of 1oz full-fat Cheddar cheese (three times a week), you can reduce your annual calorie intake by 11,700 calories. (The equivalent of nearly 3.5 pounds in weight.)

Fat and Health

Cheese is one of the fattiest foods you can eat. Even worse, it is rich in saturated-fat, which is linked to heart disease. (e.g. 66% of the fat in Cheddar cheese is saturated.) So, for the sake of your health, choose lower fat cheese, or (ideally) “fat-free” cheese. Fat-free cheese contains less than 0.5% fat.

Remember

Weight loss and dieting doesn’t mean eating less – just different.
