I eat cottage cheese and peanuts every night before I go to bed. I'll also throw in a can of tuna every other night, mostly on workout days. I get Prairie Farms Fat Free, but that may be a local company.

Isn't cottage cheese really high in sodium? That's why it tastes so good. I think one serving has several hundred mg of Na. And it's pretty easy to eat 2-3 servings in one sitting, or around a gram of Na. Not great if you're trying not to retain water or are concerned about high blood pressure.

the catch is simply:

1. If you're lactose intolerant (big % of potion is) you are no go
2. lots of dairy will give you a "puffy" look... but is only a look... for competition style-diets, nono

other than that, agreed, it is good

I had never had much cottage cheese growing up so I just assumed I would hate it, since at the time I was a big junk food eater and couldn't stand anything healthy or "green". After a few months into my diet of forcing down these foods I got used to them and actually like them now, I was at my aunt's house and had heard some things about cottage cheese on this board and she had some 4% in the fridge so I decided to try it, I LOVED IT!

Now, I get the 2% at Sam's Club just because its 3lb for $3.88, they don't have any 0% or 1% but now I buy 9lb at a time and it usually lasts me 3-4 weeks. Cottage Cheese, oatmeal, tuna, chicken is 75% of my diet these days , another big plus of cottage cheese is the price, $12 for a month's worth of meals.

Calories 90
Fat 2.5g
Sat 1.5g
Carb 6g
Prot 12g

This is the kind I get, and usually eat 3-4 servings a day.
