Hi I go for the low-fat cheese options because I have noticed that FF versions tend to be higher in carbs. I may even have up to an ounce of regular cheese if my plan that day has the "room" for it. Sorry I can't help you with the amount; whatever I have I just subtract from my L for the day...
Hi I tried to find lo fat cheese but all the cheese had more fat then we were allowed. Are there any brands you can recommend? I looked for the 2% cheese but I thought the fat was to high. I'm pretty new to this so I don't want to mess up. Thanks..

These would fall between the Lean and Leaner category as the fat content falls between the 6 oz needed with a maximum 1.5 grams of fat in the Leaner category and the 4 oz needed with minumum 3 grams fat in the Lean category......so I just let it fall in the middle and calculate the serving as 5 oz..
I find them in my local grocery store hanging on the shelf in the refrigerated section. They come individually wrapped in 1 oz "sticks", 12 sticks per package..
I love them!.
Hope this helps..
I buy the vegan rice cheese- it has a good carb/protein ratio, no fat, low calories, no cholesterol, and tastes like dairy cheese. OMG, I'm so hungry now! I love cheese..
Thanks for all the anwers. I cannot eat the morning star food. It is so crazy because it looks so much like meat , I can't get myself to eat it. So I hope it's ok that I continue to eat cheese...
Thanks to all of y ou. I love the laughing cow cheese and thought I couldn't have it. It doesn't melt but tastes great in an omellete or salad instead of chicken. Need diversity...
Mmmm, laughing cow cheese...didnt realize it was allowed either!!..
