    Try Ricotta cheese.

    Yes it is, but tastes much better. It is actually more concentrated (less wet). 1/4 cup Ricotta = 1/2 cup cottage cheese. Very similar macros.

    although the macros are very similar, ricotta has a much higher concentration of whey to casein than cottage cheese.

    I bet ya guys will never think twice before picking up cottage cheese when grocery shopping.

    Protein Pancakes:

    1/2 cup oats
    1/2 cup cottage cheese
    4 egg whites
    1 Tbsp vanilla extract
    cinnamon to taste

    Blend everything in a blender. Spray pan with cooking oil. Eat with whatever the hell you like.

    It's been a breakfast of mine for a while now. Simply marvelous with a protein punch it packs.

    You can add it to instant pudding(w/ a blender) and you'll never taste it. You can add some extra whey powder too, it's real tasty.


    For a somewhat "dirty" bulking snack/meal, get a container of those cold mayonnaise salads at your grocery store (macaroni salad, spring salad, potato salad, etc) and stir a bunch of fat free cottage cheese into it. Just be careful not to overdo it cause those salads usually have a high amount of soybean oil (very little saturated fat though and no trans fat). It's very very delicious and again you can't taste the cottage cheese and it doesn't seem to change the texture. Very easy, very quick dense calories and a hell of a lot better for you than McDonalds.

    Smuckers makes a couple of diiferent flavors of sugarfree jam that tastes really good in cottage cheese. I also have eaten it with extra lean turkey bacon and it was awesome, but I kinda like the taste of caottage cheese.

    For me, cottage cheese and anything iss great. Just had it actually with oats, bt I made the oats seperate with cinnanmon and stevia placed them in the fridge to chill for 20 then I ate my cottage cheese and put some stevia and cinnamon in there. This is a great meal anytime.

    I also eat cc a lot with black beans and a tbsp of salsa..try it

    Fat free cottage cheese has only 2 per 1 cup. That is nothing. Ricotta has around 5. If you mix both with protein it won't really matter. Plus it is whey protein in both cheeses

    not sure if this is possible unless extreme processing/microfiltering techniques are used. its pretty low carb to begin with so i doubt any manufacturer will adopt this concept. looks like we just gotta take the lactose with it

    Mine says 5 carbs for every 12 grams of protein.Coburn Farms brand and another brand, its a pink container, forget the name of it, dont have it here in front of me. When you are on a calorie restricted diet all this matters. Casein protein is the best protein before bed , as its one of the slowest digesting proteins . Fact When cutting Calorie counting is important, Ill keep eating Cottege cheese before bed due to the fact its slow digesting and imo tasty. Cinn mixed is good. cinn improves insulin function

    Do they even make fat-free ricotta? I've looked several times for it at the local grocery store, and have come up empty-handed every time

    Actually lean gain/cut. It's not bad! 24g healthy fat 72g protein 30g carbs... 624 cals AND I eat about 3500 cals a day (obviously not all meals have that much fat but I do go fat heavy and carb light). I also weight about 210 with pretty low BF (would guess 10-12)
