Info on Cheeses from Medifast Nutritionists on incorporating types of cheese into the L&G meal:.

1 1/2 cups (12 oz) 1% cottage cheese= 1 Leanest serving (2 healthy fat.

Servings needed).

1 1/2 cups (12 oz) 2% cottage cheese= 1 Leaner serving (1 healthy fat.

Serving needed).

6 oz (1 1/2 cup shredded) low-fat cheese (1-1.5 gram fat/oz)= 1 Leaner.

Serving (1 healthy fat serving needed).

4 oz (1 cup shredded) moderate-fat cheese (3-6 grams/oz)= 1 Lean serving.

(no healthy fat serving needed)this would equal 4 string cheese sticks.

Incorporating types of cheese as a fat choice:.

1 wedge of the Original Laughing Cow cheese as 1 fat serving.

2 wedges of the Laughing Cow Light varieties as 1 fat serving.

1 piece of the Mini Babybel, Light (Original) as 1 fat serving.

10 pieces (approximately 47 grams) Laughing Cow Light Gourmet Cheese.

Bites as 1 fat serving.

1 tablespoon regular cream cheese as 1 fat serving.

Incorporating types of cheese as a condiment choice:.

1 tablespoon low-fat cream cheese= 1 condiment choice.

1 tablespoon parmesan cheese (grated or shredded)= 1 condiment choice.

Fat-free cheeses don't usually fit into the plan as it is too high in carbohydrates...

It's very high in sodium. Medifast foods already gives you your daily requirement, so use anything like this that is high in sodium very sparingly. You're trying to lose weight, not retain it as water weight...

I am new to this (3 weeks) and my husband is about to quit. I followed a recipe for toast on this forum using the pancake mix in a square ziplock container. See below:.

1 pancake packet.

1/4 C water.

1/4 tsp. baking powder.

Pam spray to coat.

Mix above ingredients and let sit for 15-30 min..

Spray a square plastic storage container with Pam( I used a 4x4 inch).

Pour batter in container..

Microwave for 2 min(or until done).

Then I cut the bread into 2 slices and added 1 wedge of the light laughing cow cheese and made grilled cheese with just a little spray in the pan. Let's just say...that put him on back on track!.

Also, I tried the biscuit recipe this morning and added 1 light laughing cow cheese in the middle of the biscuit...YUM!!!.

I made the pancake mix in a coffee cup. Added 1/8 baking soda. Let sit for 15 mins. Then, cooked for 2 mins in the microwave...
