OK, so I'm coming back to the beach and am trying to do a menu plan for the week. I loaned my south beach book to my supervisor so can someone remind me... does southbeach consider cheese as dairy or protein?

Thank you in advance.

Good article. Thanks for posting it.

Although an ounce of chicken and an ounce of regular cheese have the same amount of protein, cheese has twice the calories and four times the fat. :yikes: That's why we have to be careful not to overdo it. Reduced fat cheeses are better choices.

Thank you Ruth... I've come to realize the reason south beach didn't work as well for me the last time is that I was not watching my fats nor my c heese!!! YIKES!
