    Cottage Cheese

    While cutting, is low-fat cottage cheese an acceptable source of protein or is there too much sugar in it?

    I think its not a good cutting food because of the sugar content. And for the fact that a competing bodybuilder has told me that milk products can thicken your skin. No i dont have any proof, just something someone told, so i may be full of it.

    Thicken your skin????
    Some people say dairy makes your muscles flat. I don't think that has ever been proven either.

    It depends on how much you are cutting and what you are cutting from.

    Non fat cottage cheese only has 4 grams of carbs per 1/2 cup serving.
    So if you are cutting from Tony's Pizza, then it is an acceptable source....

    If you are dieting for a bodybuilding show, and are less than 12 weeks out, I would say no.

    Everything in life is relative.....
    So, show us where you are, and what you are doing to get to where you want to be.

    Missabs I'm currently 6'0, 180 lbs, 10%bf. I want to get down to about 6-7% by may. I've been trying to eat around 1750-2000 kcal / day and do 20 min of cardio 2-3x/week. Will 1 cup of cottage cheese as one of my small meals in the afternoon be detrimental?

    A typical day for me would look like this:

    10:30 - 3/4 dry oats
    1 scp Protein Powder
    1/2 tbsp Peanut Butter

    12:15 - 1 cup Cottage Cheese

    3:00 (pre-workout) - 4oz Chicken
    1/2 cup brown rice
    1/2 whole-wheat pita

    5:00 (post-workout) - 1 Myoplex
    1 3/4 cup of Milk

    6:30 - 4oz Chicken
    150g Pasta

    9:00 - 3/4 cup Oatmeal
    1 scp Protein
    1/2 tbsp Peanut Butter

    12:00 - 1 can Tuna

    The only difference is on a non workout day, I would have no postworkout meal at 5:00pm so the total calories would be a bit less.
