I enjoy my cheese too. The first thing I did was to switch to the lower fat cheese. And the tip about shredding works really well, as you don't need to use as much.

If the recipes you currently are using have lots of cheese, perhaps it's time to try some new recipe ideas. There are so many options out there. SparkRecipes is a great place to start.

I think if you plan you can have your cheese and eat it, too! emoticon emoticon try lower fat cheese, like the 2% fat, also, try laughing cow light baby bell, spreadable wedges and light flavoured cream cheese wedges! They are excellent! Check out Hungry Girl! She uses ALOT of laughing cow cheeses in great recipes! Be sure you track and do it a day ahead to be sure to account for your cheese!
Good Luck!

I'm a cheese lover too. :)

Why are you not wanting to eat cheese anymore? Cheese isn't a bad habit at all. In fact, it's a great snack for those of us who are losing weight, because it's packed with nutrients that help us, like calcium and protein!

I've found that the key to controlling cheese is using LESS - not eliminating it altogether! Instead of two slices of cheddar in my eggs, I grab an ounce of mozzarella! I still get the taste I love, and I've found that I need less in everything. Instead of a cup of cheese on my spagetti, I measure out 1-2 ounces of shredded, and it does what I want it to. Shredding also spreads out the volume so it covers more, while needing less to do so.

hello everyone!
I am a cheese lover. I would like for some advice on how or what i can replace to satisfy my craving for cheese. When I look at the things that I eat they seem to contain some kind of cheese in them rather it be eggs in the morning or roll ups in the afternoon I find myself putting cheese on everything. So anyone please help with some advice to help me break this bad habit.
