Italian cheese and obesity

My attempts at losing weight are primarily undermined by my liking for cheese. Not that beer and rice and potatoes don’t contribute, but the connection with cheese is – for me – pronounced and immediate.

So I looked at some data on cheese consumption and obesity data for the US which is readily available. A similarity of shape between growth of obesity prevalence and cheese consumption is apparent. But the similarity is much more pronounced with the consumption of Italian rather than the total amount of cheese or just American cheese ……..

Cheese and obesity

But avoiding Italian cheese as a sop to my cheese addiction is not going to help me…

    Look this Web site and see how you can eat cheese without gaining weight. You have to cut on carb.

    Health professionals are behind this way of addressing weight problems and nutrition: doctors, nurses, dieticians.

    Good luck

    Losing weight is not something you do reach a goal. Losing weight is a lifestyle change that is permanent. The fat you eat is the fat you wear. Fat and in particular OIL has twice the saturation of calories that sugar has. You have heard of refined sugar ? Well oil is refined as well. Once it is separated from the food oil has not one thing in it that you need other than calories . If you are not starving you don’t need oil and you can find extra oil in just about everything from chips , baked goods and salad dressings. There is no healthy oil , period. Greece and Italy have some of the highest rates of childhood obesity in the world. The Eskimos DO have heart disease despite the meme that says eating fatty fish is healthy. It’s not and you are being lied to.

    Here’s a great weight loss program I used to lose weight and permanently keep it off:

    Read this first. History of nutrition, long, but reads as a novel.

    I love cheese too. Give up snacks, eat more vegetables and fruits and drink water not soda, you can enjoy the cheese without gaining weight.
