I agree.

By the way, 'fat free' almost always means 'added sugar'.

Stick to normal cheese.

Better still, eat cottage cheese.

Eh, whatever fits into your daily caloric intake. The last diet you posted though, had you eating a lot of non-fat foods. You seem to be straying away from fat or keeping it as low as possible.

I buy the fat-free cheese singles to use on my egg sandwiches and tuna melts. I wouldn't eat/buy a lot of it, but the singles are pretty good.

It's like flashpoint cheese though...if you're making a grilled cheese or tuna melt, it seems like the stuff will never melt and then *snap* it's liquid! :p

Go by the macronutrients. If per slice it's something like:

protein : 5g
carb : 1g
fat : 0.02g

then there will be no appreciable amounts of trans fatty acids to worry about.

in my experience they are good for cold applications but not suitable for melted cheese applications cause they end up yucky

Depends whether the info includes the trans-fats and partially hydrogenated fats in the total fat breakdown.

But for such a small slice it's not gonna be the sole reason for any unexpected death.

An accumulation of the stuff throughout the day, everyday may though.

Wouldn't it have to be included by law?

At a minimum you could see the total calories vs what you calculate to see if there's something missing.

Trans fats and sugar alcohols do not have to be included in the label. However you can still calculate it out, because the total fat will include all fats, so if the sat/unsat fats don't add up to the total fat, the difference is trans fats.

Fat free cheese is like non-alcoholic beer and decaf latte's.

I'd avoid them also. Due to the anti saturated fat histeria we have been poisoning ourselves with artificial fats that serve no purpose to our bodies and are responsable for the increase in many diseases in modern times. They're out to get us and stuff us with margarine and discusting things alike till we get cancer, all in the name of profit. :D

They're not taking me alive....:swear:

Maybe i should go to sleep now.....

Lucerene cheese tastes great and melts great too.
Comparde to the Kraft Singles, had less fat and calories, and taste just as good if not better.
It's cheaper too!

I believe its 'low carb' not 'no carb' beer. 2-4g/bottle or something like that.

My question is this:

If you're drinking beer, why the hell would you be worrying about your carb count?

Exactly, people forget the 7cals per g that come from alcohol, not to mention that it totally shuts off lipoylsis.

You plan on eating a lot of it? If not, look at the top part of the quote. If you are, look at the bottom part.


But for such a small slice it's not gonna be the sole reason for any unexpected death.
