I am confused. Do I buy fat free, low fat or regular when it comes to these products? Also, low fat cheese or regular cheese? Are the cream cheese spreads okay to use?

Cream cheese is great for me.

Yogurt, cottage cheese ... not so good. Read labels, by brand, and test like mad.

I LOVE cottage cheese, too!

Never buy "low fat" anything, just a fancy way of adding more crap into something that doesnt need messing with

Thanks so much for the info. I'm very new at this and still learning. I can't check my levels yet as not seeing the doc until this coming week. Was diagnosed by default in ER late last week and put on Metformin in the meantime so no idea what my numbers are. But I have gone very low carb and starting to learn all I can in the meantime. Also have given up all sugar and anything white.

Thanks again.

I buy the full fat version, if possible. I like to buy the organic full fat sour cream and cream cheese. I used to be able to eat greek yogurt, but now it does spike me over 120. I don't have good luck with cottage cheese, plus it has a lot of sodium in it. I would rather eat Ricotta Cheese. I do eat a lot of hard cheeses and have no problem.

I use the full fat versions of all those dairy products and I also use full fat mayonnaise, as well as heavy whipping cream to use instead of milk. I dilute the cream with water for anything that calls for milk, and it has never disappointed me.

How does the diluted cream compare with milk? I've been using the 0% fat milk for as long as I can remember and don't really care for even 2% anymore.

Yep, one cup of skim milk has 12g carbs. One cup of diluted cream (1:1 with water) has 3.5g carbs.

I'll be )(#%&#. What an idiot. I thought whipping cream was free since it showed 0 carbs/serving, but of course that serving was 1-2T. I've been whipping it with erythritol and eating a cup whipped easy. It wasn't enough carbs to spike me, but 3 carbs here 3 carbs there starts adding up. Lesson learned. I need to look these things up!
