I guess that like everything it pays to look at all of the options.
Calories in Kraft Deli Deluxe Swiss Cheese Slices and Nutrition Facts
Kraft Deli Deluxe Swiss Cheese, 2 slices, Carb=0g, Fat=9g, P=8g
So there are other choices.

And of course, as we've all been told here, the moment you see, "low-fat" or "non-fat" on the label, just skip over that product, which again is evidenced here with the nonfat cheese having carbs added to replace the lost taste of taking out the fat.

Yeah, unfortunately we can go on vacation, but our diabetes never does.

I've been LCHF for 3 months now. I've had a few 'cheat's along the way which I can still count on one hand. But no bread or rice has passed my lips. My cheats are more of the sweet kind during parties!

I've got my A1c down from 6.5 to 4.7 and I've lost 24 lbs so I'm patting my self on the back and not worrying. And I'm getting really good at making low carb pizza's and low carb cheese muffins!

I do cheat, but I find that my bar for "foods that are worth it" has risen a LOT. We went to the yearly fair and I had a few foods I wanted to try as a cheat. I threw away the deep fried butter, then the deep fried pie, then the deep fried beans... they were just horrible! Then found some smoked pork ribs and dug in, those tasted GREAT! Surprised myself. I have to admit I did end with a caramel apple, but overall didn't overeat or overstuff myself with carbs.

Mind you, I'm not trying for ketosis. To get into ketosis and stay there, you can't cheat at all.

Why'd you throw away the deep fried butter?! I don't see any cheats there except the pie and the caramel apple (and throwing away the butter!). Oh, were those pulse beans? I was thinking green beans. Yup, that would be another.

Oh, they were all deep fried in batter. The problem was the batter, it was so tough and not tasty. I know, I was all over the idea of deep fried butter. Maybe they were pulse beans, we thought they were green beans but they didn't taste like any green beans we've ever had!

The deep fried butter was basically a pastry ball the size of a golf ball, with a pat of frozen butter in the middle. The butter tasted ok, but the pastry... ick.

I'm female, in my early 50's and my starting weight was 107.6 kg (about 237lbs) and have got down to 95kg (209lbs) and still losing every week.

When I first started LCHF, 3 1/2 months ago, I had a carb blow out of a packet of crackers. A few weeks after that I had 4 Tim Tams - Aussie chocolate biscuits to die for. The next blow out was a few tiny gourmet biscuits on my birthday in June and then the next was a couple of cupcakes on my daughters birthday in August. So nothing really drastic except for the whole packet of crackers but I was experiencing false hypo's at the time and feeling rotten.

I've always used food as a drug, especially carbs and sugar, because a blow out would make me feel spaced out and sleepy. So not only did I have to completely change my diet I also had to find other ways of self soothing. I'd eat when sad, I'd eat when stressed, I'd eat when bored. I've now learned to express my feelings and not eat to cover them up.

Except for the occasional 'cheat', as mentioned above, I stick to below 30g of carbs a day.
