What's everyone's spin on cheese post op? I'm to the point where I can have it. Being a cheese lover, I think I can incorporate it in healthy meals as long as it is low fat and high Protein, but I want to know what everyone else thinks and how they've eaten cheese post op. I don't want to end up gaining weight post op. Thanks!

Haha! Love it! How has it played into your weight loss? Do you think it helps or makes your weight loss slower? That's just my fear.

I cut up a 2 pound brick of Tillamook pepper crack into 32 pieces. It's easy, half it, half those pieces then quarter them, take everything and cut them in half. Now you have 32 1oz pieces. I add these to all kinds of things, chili, meatloaf, chicken and of course I often eat it on its own. I also love gouda and havarti. For some reason I have a hard time with cheddar.

Slower?

No...

Bearable?

Yeah!!!

cheese is by no means the worst thing you can eat in ANY stage of the process...

There's Protein in cheese...

It may not always be at the best ratio in regard to calories...

But I'll be f*cked if I'm giving up EVERYTHING!!!

You eat your cheese...

And when you do, you think of me...

Enjoy!!!!

cheese is a reason to live. To answer your question, in moderation. Unless a cheese is lowfat from the day it was first produced, why give up the real thing? Most are god awful in lowfat versions. Eat the best-tasting whatever-it-is. When I do, my soul sings and I don't even want all that much.

@ plays dominoes with the pepper-dotted cheese before tossing the pieces into the pot. He gives me the cheddar.

"A life lived without cheddar is a life half lived"...

Ok, so maybe that's not exactly the quote...

But it's true!!!

You're be free of fear if your goal is reasonable. Can you live with a goal "To lose weight?" I'll make a crazy-wild guess that you were obese for quite a while. Is there really an emergency now to lose rapidly? If you eat well, you will lose. Make it a joyful process -- eat cheese.

Love cheese. Can't live without cheese. Surgeon says I absolutely don't have to live without cheese. Just ordered a case of Moon Cheese from Amazon. (If you haven't tried it, you must...)

Had the best cheese meal tonight and so easy

Turkey deli meat

Avocado

Either sliced or cheese stick

Roll up and heat in a pan with little olive oil

Cheese melts and it's like eating grilled cheese with the meat as the bread!

I always eat cheese now. Surgery was March. I did talk to my surgeon I was worried I was eating too much. He laughed and said cut the crackers out with it, but that the cheese is fine it's Protein. I have it every single day for morning tea and dessert. I've lost 46kg since March, so it can't be that bad!

There e no BAD foods, but some foods are better type Han others. My NUT APPROVES of any nutritious food in moderation. And lets face it, with a stomach that hold just a little over 3 oz I can only eat in moderation.

Cheese!

I make "crackers" out of cheese for spreading tuna and chicken salad on:

The only special thing you need is parchment paper, though I have made it on pieces of brown pepper bag.

Preheat t he over to 375

Cover a shallow baking pain with paper

Shred 2 oz of cheese and add salt and pepper to taste. make six equal mounds on the paper. Leave room they will spread.

Bake for ~10 minutes. (8 in a convection oven) check every minute after the first 7. It's ready when thin and fairly brown on the edges.

Remove from oven and slide the paper onto a cold surface. It's crisper if it cools faster. In a few minutes take it off the paper with a thin spatula and if the cheese is oily blot the crisps with a paper towel.

Once cooled store loosely wrapped in paper at room temperature, keeps for one or two days.

They stay crisp in the frig and even freezer as old as they are in an air tight container.

Six "crackers" with a Protein spread = 2-3 servings

It might take a few trays to get the texture just right but after that it's really easy to make these.

pizza Crackers:toss together ~ 2oz pre shredded "mexican cheese blend" with 1 table spoon of shredded parmesan, a dash of ground pepper and a few shakes of each, dried basil garlic powder, and dried Tomato powder. You can add also two slices of pepperoni
