Which cheeses can be considered clean, healthy sources of fat and which should be avoided? I need some more fats in my diet, don't want to get sick of peanut butter too quickly.

natural cheese. skip the low fat stuff, and just have normal, unprocessed cheese in MODERATION.

Well this is mainly in the context of food at a campus cafeteria. Should it be assumed all the cheese there is processed?

most likely yes, can't you go out and buy a few things form the local grocer.

Well for cost efficiency I am trying to get a good amount of food in during cafeteria meal, its $7 per time, meal plan, can get as much as you want there and they have good chicken veggies spinach etc. Trying to keep outside expenses down to peanut butter, cereal, milk, and whey protein. Guess I'll just hit up some nuts and beans there.

1/3 of your fat consumption should be Saturated fat. Dr. John Beradi has long preached this.

saturated fat is good for testesterone levels.

Down as much chicken as possible. If you're eating whole foods like that (particularly meat), don't worry about not eating enough cheese. Save the cheese for later.

yeah, use cheese as more of a 'filler' when you need it, rather than a staple food item.
