The STARTLING Truth About Cheese
Unless you’re lactose intolerant, I bet you love cheese. (I sure do!)
You might even consider it your guilty pleasure.
Well, I have some good news. There’s NOTHING to feel guilty about if you like to load up on delectable dairy.
But a new study warns us to be sure it’s the RIGHT kind. (Trust me, you’re going to LOVE this!)
SURPRISE… it turns out the mainstream has been lying to you. There’s NO reason to reach for the fat-free, flavorless cheese options lining store shelves.
Because another study has come out supporting the health benefits of much-villainized FULL-FAT cheese
For years, mainstream health organizations have scared people into thinking that full-fat cheese increases your risk of heart disease because it contains saturated fat.
Of course, I’ve been telling you that saturated fat is actually good for you for JUST as long.
For decades, the mainstream has warned that eating full-fat cheese will make you gain weight and cause digestive issues, like bloating.
But when it comes to ANY food—including cheese—you have to look at the whole product, not just its individual parts.
As with most things in life, it’s all about balance. It’s everything working together within a food that delivers the best benefits.
So when you start messing with perfection—say, by extracting the fat out of dairy products—that’s when the problems happen.
The simple solution? Eat full-fat cheese, and plenty of it.
Studies show eating a moderate amount of full-fat cheese won’t make you gain weight. This is likely because it makes you feel full and satisfied which keeps you from overeating.
And when it comes to heart disease some studies show that it doesn’t affect your risk. Others have found that folks who eat a moderate amount of cheese actually have a LOWER risk of heart disease compared to those who don’t eat any.
Eating full-fat dairy has even been linked with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. On the other hand, low-fat dairy has been shown to slightly increase the risk of these conditions.
I enjoy eating cheese on salad or on one of my wife’s charcuterie boards.
But I have to warn you, if you prefer to get your cheese in a double stuffed pizza with extra cheese, it won’t have the same effect.
That’s because in addition to the cheese itself being best in its natural form, the health benefits are greatest when you eat it as part of a healthy, whole-food diet.
P.S. Trying to decide which delicious cheese to try next? Researchers found that one particular cheese happens to be GREAT for your bones AND your blood sugar. CLICK HERE to find out which one it is.
