    Cottage Cheese...


    Can't stand the taste of plain cottage cheese so I do this. It makes you feel like you are cheating on your diet!!!

    1 cup FF or 1% cottage cheese
    1 TBSP Splenda
    1 TSP cinnamon

    Heaven.

    I eat it with a tb spoon of sour cream, or sprinkle some ground black pepper. One thing about cottage cheese though, manufacturers add too much salt to it, so watch out for sodium content. There are brands with very low sodium out there.

    Well, I guess you have to man up to it... lol
    But seriously, it's not that bad.
    Dry curd Cottage cheese by Sunshine Dairy foods is my favorite. Only 15 grams of sodium per serving! Highly recommended.

    ummm depends on what you mean by serious cut... i have not had problems losing bf with it, but i would probably be a tiny bit leaner with loss of some muscle of coarse had i cut it out...

    While not clean, a friend eats cottage cheese with doritos.

    I hate the taste and texture, so I just put it in a blender cup with some water and after pureeing it I just chug. 15 seconds and the pain is gone.

    If you don't like CC then try protein powder. CC is up there in salt content, so a protein drink, even a RTD like myoplex would be a better option than blended CC.

    Yeah, and the doritos are definitely high in salt (and everything else that you should avoid)!!

    My favorite, 2-3 heaping table spoons of sliced jalapeno's. with about 1 cup of Cottage cheese. it gives a similar outcome to the stuffed jalapeno poppers you can get as a appetizer. the CC gives it a pretty mild bite.

    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.

    Try 2 parts CC to 1 part fat free sour cream (ie-2 cups CC and 1 cup SC). This is what I use to substitute in lasagna and it's great.
