1 cup of ricotta cheese is 10 carbs. So it would depend on what you're doing with it, and how much of it you are eating. I dont see why not if you're eating tbsp's of it at a time.

THe book says to limit cheese intake to 4 ounces. But I love my cheese...so if I watch my carbs, could I take more than 4 ounces?

I don't measure out my cheese. If you find you're not losing the weight fast enough,cut back on the cheese and see if that helps :)

If I watch my carbs, I still only use the amount I am allowed. 4 ounzes is perfect! I'd stick to that.

I'm bad and don't measure my cheese. So far it hasn't slowed down my weight loss. Down another pound this morning(YAY). Just watch how your body reacts to cheese you will know if you've eaten too much. Judy

[/FONT]riccotta cheese ok on induction?


To answer your question, NO ricotta cheese is not permitted on Induction.

You can consume three to four ounces daily of the following full-fat, firm, soft and semisoft aged cheeses*, including:

cow, sheep and goat cheese
cream cheese
Roquefort and other blue cheeses

*All cheeses have some carbohydrate content. The quantity you eat should be governed by that knowledge. The rule of thumb is to count 1 ounce of cheese as equivalent to 1 gram of carbohydrate. Note that cottage cheese, farmer’s cheese and other fresh cheeses are not permitted during Induction. No "diet" cheese, cheese spreads or whey cheeses are permitted. Individuals with known yeast symptoms, dairy allergy or cheese intolerance must avoid cheese. Imitation cheese products are not allowed, except for soy or rice cheese—but check the carbohydrate content.

All the best to you,
