    Hi all,

    I noticed in a couple of threads the mystery surrounding cheese and how it maybe stalling some people and not others. Maybe we could do a little check on the brands to see what's working and what's not?

    I'll start:

    Asda basic Mild Cheddar: OK
    Asda full fat cream cheese: OK
    Sainsburys basic cream cheese: OK
    Applewood - OK
    Babybel - OK
    Cheesestrings - OK

    As far as I know, it stalls because cheese and milk based dairy contains lactose. Anything ending in 'ose' is a sugar. Dairy is the most common adult food sensitivity so I expect people sensitive to lactose get stalled by it. I shouldn't think it's to do with brands.

    I've been thinking about lactose - even though on my plan i'm allowed whole milk in my tea the sugars on my diary on my fitness pal are quite high, and i'm wondering if it's all the milk. I'm going to try and limit my tea and cheese a bit more, it makes sense.

    Has anyone tried the lactose free dairy products? Is it just milk they do or do they make lactose free cheese?

    Anyone know carb contents for that either? I might go to asda after work and check!

    Personal lifes a bit of a mess so not up to diary keeping. Look in here when I can but only semi-low carb right now. Have managed not to gain at least.

    Thanks for askingxxx

    Re lactose free stuff: there is an enzyme called lactase you can get as a pill if you're lactose intolerant too. No idea if it would affect loss.

    According to Mark Sisson (Mark's Daily Apple founder and promoter of the 'paleo' lifestyle) there is no lactose left in cheese once it is made.

    All bold text was what he chose to bold, I couldn't change it for some reason!

    Maybe we should all be breaking out the vintage cheddar :D

    I had lactose intolerance after surgery and cheese definitely triggered it so that's surprising! Interesting to know.
