    Stuff like cheddar is fine, I think no carbs... other softer cheese like feta and halloumi have some carbs I think but its still not too bad

    Cheese is high fat but low carb so depends what you're looking for! Think exante want us to be low carb AND low fat which isn't as much fun! ;)

    well you need to balance it with the fact you are on a very low calorie diet, and cheese is high in cals and fat. Standard cheese shouldn't take you out of K, I had it a few times in the past (although a small amount, maybe a teaspoon or two)...

    Its just making sure its not something you have too often. x

    At the end of the day its your decision, if you want to do it you can. For example: I have 2 cups of tea every day on exante, it isn't enough to take me outta K, but it could be for someone else. You need to consider if the additional calories are worth it and could you do without? (I personally HAVE to have a cup of tea every day lol)

    Also remember that your body needs some fat to really absorb some types of vitamins, so if you want cheese on your add a meal weeks, there is that benefit also.

    Feta is lower in carbs than cheddar, and its higher in protein.

    I LOVE FETA!

    what about cottage cheese? I usually eat wafer thin ham or chicken but could go a tub (small of course!) of cottage cheese with chives.

    I've got tescos own cottage cheese (with onions) and there is around 4g carbs per 100g. Would probably have to be careful not to eat a lot, but it should be ok x

    A lot of the time it is trial and error
