I am a fan of cottage cheese, but really only for taste and occasionally... since there has not been a single peer reviewed controlled published study done regarding human protein metabolism and resulting levels of sustained blood amino acid content and more importantly accompanying protein synthesis rate and anabolism, I am skeptical whether or not cottage cheese serves our goals well as a tool used to supply casein protein prior to bed to stave off muscle wasting hormones.
Also, I remove cottage cheese either entirely or at six weeks out from a contest when dieting, depending on my rate of fat loss any given year as I prep.
One thing I have found is delicious, is when in the off season preparing breakfast, I am a huge English Egg Muffin Sandwich fan, and in stead of using the fat laden usual slice of American or Cheddar cheese, I will use cottage cheese and spoon it right on top of the egg. 100% whole wheat English muffin, 3 slices of Turkey Bacon, Cottage Cheese, and 1 whole egg over easy with 2 additional egg whites; fat free spray butter and sugar free jelly can be added to the muffins as they pop from the toaster if desired.
