5 ways eating cheese can actually help you lose kilos

We all know how we wallow in self-pity when we’re upset and subject our bodies to those cheese-loaded pizzas and fries. After that, we wallow in misery about the extra calories and kilos we have added to our bodies. Well, all that won’t happen anymore, because, as it turns out, cheese can actually make you lose weight if you eat it right.

Multiple surveys over time have found that people who eat more cheese tend to have a lower body mass index (BMI).

Here’s how you can eat cheese right to lose weight:

Eat fresh mozzarella for snacks

According to a study published in British Journal of Nutrition, people who eat a high-protein, moderate-calorie cheese snack eat less during their next meal. And we all know how snacking adds those calories to the body, don’t we?

Women’s Health magazine reports, “Even if you go with a version made from whole milk, you’ll still only set yourself back 85 calories if you indulge in an ounce of fresh mozzarella–many bags of potato chips come in past 200.”

Replace mayonnaise with cheese

If you’re in the habit of spreading mayonnaise on your sandwich, then here’s a better option: put cheese instead. One tablespoon of full-fat mayonnaise has 94 calories and 10 grams of fat. However, a tablespoon of whipped cream cheese has 30 calories and two and a half grams of fat–much lesser in comparison to your regular mayo. This small tweak can help you effectively cut down your daily intake of calories.
