Quick question from a newbie..

Is the 2% cheese by Kraft considered okay on this plan?

It says low fat or ff cheese.

I use the same thing so I hope so :)

I thought it would be, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

The SB Cookbook says to choose cheeses with no more than 6 grams of fat per serving, so the Kraft 2% is okay (it's right at 6 I think). :D I have yet to find a FF cheese I think is worth even eating, so I'm sooo glad we can use this!

I'm on a house rabbit mailing list, and one of the members works at a lab at the University of Wisconsin (where else?) trying to make a good fat free cheese. He says so far they have been unable to do it...that you need at least 30% fat to make it palatable (and a bunch of other scientific words). I totally agree! I can do light, but not FF cheese. Blech! I think it falls into the Frankenfood category!

However, I love fat free milk. Yummmmm! So clean tasting! I can't wait to have it in Phase 2!

Unless I'm mistaken (I don't have my good carb book handy) you can have some FF milk in Phase I. I've been having a glass a day.

I thought I read that somewhere, but by then I had my shopping done, so I did not buy any. It sounds so good, though! Maybe I'll get some this weekend. Yummmm...

Thanks, Amanda!
