Probably if you're trying to kickstart weight loss, like for induction, I'd leave it out. I think it's like 4g of carb per serving. I'm sure I'd lose faster if I didn't eat it but I'm thinking marathon not sprint. Make sure you get the full fat kind.

I eat it a lot to. It all comes down to how it effects your weight loss. Some can have it and not effect the weight loss. Some can have a little and some cannot have it at all. It all depends on the person. I would try it and see how it effects your weight loss. If it doesn't effect you, then go for it! If it does, its better to just leave it out!
Don't get to carried away though, measure it out and make sure you don't over eat it. Same as regular cheese. Good Luck!

I thought cottage cheese was off limits in induction?

Why is full fat a good thing instead of low fat?

I just added this in yesterday. Full fat cottage cheese is amazing. Wow. I avoided it like the plague in the old days.

low fat products mostly replace fat with sugar or sodium.

so check the low fat product labels. you will see sugar and/or sodium probably increase from the full fat version.

if they take the fat, they have to increase something else to try to keep flavor.


when you eat fat on this lc plan, you should always eat full fat products.
forget the low fat options out there. full fat is what your body is burning if you are in ketosis. you need it actually.

it isn't if it is what you want to plan into your day.

a 20-25 net carb limit is what I try to follow. So it doesn't matter what I eat as long as I come in at my carb limits. So if it 'seems too many carbs' for what serving size, you might want to ditch it and eat more bang for your buck.

it doesn't matter the net carbs in it, it matters about your total carb count for the day mostly.

Yes, and it's very good with strawberries or any kind of berry on top with some splenda. You can also add some cocoa powder (sf) and splenda and it makes a nice chocolate treat. There is also a recipe on here for ice cream made from it.

On another thread I read, there is someone who does not eat cottage cheese but instead uses a combination of ricotta and sour cream as a substitute. I like all three so I'm think about trying his combination to keep the carbs down.

I switched this week from hamburger to ground turkey instead. Should I be eating the beef instead?

I'm thinking yes. I had a 99% fat free turkey burger for dinner tonight because I had the turkey and needed to eat it. But I've read that 75% lean ground beef is the best. I will be sure to get that next. Grass fed preferably!
