Cheese in all its forms is something you normally can eat a lot of when you eat according to a keto diet. Cheese usually contains very little carbohydrate but as always, it is important to read the contents when you buy it. There are cheeses that contain zero grams of carbohydrates per 100 g, and there are those that contain significantly more.
One tip is to avoid pre-grated cheese in a bag – to the cheese should not lump the manufacturers have often added potato flour or other form of starch which gives unnecessarily high amounts of carbohydrates. It is much better to buy cheese slice and grate the cheese yourself.
A great snack when you get hungry is to eat a piece of brie cheese or Babybel cheeses. Babybel cheese is good to have around when you are away from home as they last long outside the fridge and is good packed and can easily be included in the bag.
Always select cheeses with as high-fat as possible. Avoid processed cheeses such as cream cheese in a tube.
There are those who limit their intake of dairy products including cheese and then they see that it inhibits weight loss. Others have no problems at all with eating cheese – it varies and you have yourself come up with what is an appropriate level. It is not the carbohydrates in the cheese that inhibit weight loss since there is often not a high amount of carbohydrates in cheese. Usually instead it is the milk protein in cheese that is the culprit.
