I hope you get a definitive answer as I've got a dozen Babybel light in my fridge just waiting to know if it's myself whose gonna scoff 'em (not all at once, obviously) or my six year old as she loves 'em too.

Same as above, but with added fruit bites.
Easy on those tolerateds... only to be used if you're happy with your weight loss and you're not stalling
And, for new people particularly, it's good to have something to pull out when the going gets tough rather than incorporating them immediately into your food plan. They can cause a stall and often do...
I don't think the Babybels lights come in the tolerated group though. Even the light ones are 'reduced fat' only and still have 12% fat (or so), whereas the philly extra-light has 4% (I think) and the extra-light laughing cow type cheese (processed triangles) is 3%. And *only those* are allowed in small doses. Save the babybel for Conso, and accept that for Cruise really the rule needs to be "no cheese".
Never mind - we are on a diet after all!! But I am thinking - won't the philly make a lovely cream cheese frosting for muffins - by adding sweetener and flavouring?? I am going to make muffins using my gingerbread syrup and try this - will let you know how it goes!
