- Question from Sangita: Is cheese the enemy? Are there any kinds that are better than others?
- Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. Having significant loyalties to the state of Wisconsin, even though I live in Michigan — cheese is not the enemy. Again, I consume organic cheese. I consume cheese from cows that were grass fed, which actually improves the fatty acid profile to helpful fatty acid. Yet, I still don't eat it with abandon. I limit my cheese. In addition, feta cheese is lower in fat overall than most other cheeses. Because flavor is still important, most low-fat cheese on the market have reduced flavor. So, I like a regular cheese that happens to be lower in fat but still packs the punch of regular cheese and feta fits that bill.
