Serve yourself a helping of small curd cottage cheese with 4% milkfat instead.
Yes, natural fat is actually a good thing for your body. Don't do the skim stuff (besides, it doesn't taste as good).
A serving of good old fashioned cottage cheese provides you with 11 grams of protein and just 5 grams of carbs. Compare that to a serving of Nacho Cheese Doritos, just 2 grams of protein and 16 grams of carbs.... If you're trying to limit yourself to 40 grams of carbs per day, that's a whopping 40% of your allowance packed in what, like 14 chips? OUCH!
And here's the kicker.... The cottage cheese has 5 grams of fat, natural fat (the good kind your body can process efficiently) and the chips have 8 grams of fat, the processed-not-good-for-your-body kind......
Cottage cheese not only tastes great, but it will stay with you much longer than those chips will. In other words, you'll feel fuller, longer, thanks in large part to that protein.
Eat it plain, dress it with chopped chives, give it a dash of fresh ground black pepper, sprinkle on some flax seed. Cottage cheese, is another dose of YUM!
