  • I Admit It... I'm A "Cheese Eater!"



    And I drink heavy cream...


    Lots of it in my coffee!!


    Ahh!


    How not primal of me.


    Before you Primalize me into gooey pulp, I've actually thought this through.


    When you get milk to a cheese form, it's pretty much eaten up all the lactose, and carbs.


    At that "stage" (cheese) is basically flavored animal fat.


    Same goes for heavy cream. <---- Hardly any carbs (basically zero) and just animal fat.


    I do realize although it has no lactose to speak of, it does contain casein which *can* be bad for some people. But if you&#39;re not eating wheat, or grains, then your GI tract should be pretty healthy, and you should be able to handle casein with no issues.


    Hard cheeses also contain K2 and lots of good fat.


    And calories! (Which I have a hard time getting enough of sometimes.)


    So when I&#39;m low on calories, or I want to spice up a meal. I&#39;ll add some cheese.


    Or I&#39;ll be very liberal with my local grass fed heavy cream in my coffee.


    What say ye primal people?!

    I say hell yeah, once I slim down to where I want to be because if I eat cheese I&#39;ll never get there.

    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

      Mark says that these dairy products are "in between." Not purist, but not bad. Often good substitutes for meat, for instance.


      Look on his blog for the right thread. He covers it.


      I&#39;m with you, for what it&#39;s worth.

        I use a touch of cheese (or have a slice for dessert) once or twice a week...and I refuse to feel guilty about it!


        FWIW, I&#39;m in a maintatining & strength building place, not a weight-loss one.

          I like cheddar. Now that pumpkin season is here I&#39;m looking forward to some nice cooked pumpkin and whipping cream. It&#39;ll be a good low carb dessert.

            Mmmmm....cheese. I&#39;m from Wisconsin, can ya blame me?

            I love cheese in any shape and form, but like someone on this forum mentioned before, I have to buy very expensive kind that comes in very small packages otherwise there&#39;s no stopping me.


            By the way, I&#39;ve seen a few comments about people getting their cream from local farms. I have quite a few dairy farms in my area but no one offers any cream. Do you get it in a raw form?

              I love cheese! I&#39;m picky and a bit broke, though, so I haven&#39;t been indulging much recently. I don&#39;t mind that it&#39;s not strictly Primal, but I&#39;m not a purist


              Sean, you&#39;re in Seattle, right? Where do you get your cream? I keep forgetting to investigate when I&#39;m at the Ballard Farmers&#39; Market.

                Awesome,


                It seems most people are cool with the cheese!


                chocolatechip,


                I don&#39;t get my dairy raw... I did once, and it didn&#39;t taste any better or worse... So, I just decided to get non-homogenized (yet still pasteurized) dairy.


                I can get it from my local store, we&#39;ve got some pretty cool places to buy groceries around here.


                They stock mostly local, organic, humanely raised animals, grass fed, free range, etc. (I feel very lucky )

                    You&#39;ve lost 13 lb eating coconut milk?


                    I tried CM in coffee a few times and I really hated it. It tasted super-sour to me. I can&#39;t drink coffee black and I can&#39;t give it up just yet, so I&#39;m sticking with half&half or heavy cream for now.

                        I&#39;m a cheese eater too. And even though I have lactose intolerance, cheese has never really affected me, so there ya go.

                        Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

                          I... well so far I&#39;ve gone relatively primal in most of my eating habits, well, not quite up to 80% yet because of weekend eating out and the college life, but getting there... but the one thing I know I won&#39;t ever be able to give up, ever, is milk...


                          I&#39;ve at least switched from skim to whole, and try to buy grass fed organic from the farmers market when I can afford it, but it&#39;s still milk...


                          So just how bad is it?

                            Chippers, someone else not long ago reported a bad CM in coffee experience. That can&#39;t be with "not old" CM. Try a different brand and place of purchase. Maybe look at expiration dates?

                              I eat cheddar and I drink heavy cream. My dairy consumption has been drastically reduced however- survival weeks broke me of my reliance on it for protein. Now I just eat more meat if I need more protein.


                              I also hate coconut milk. Made multiple attempts with different brands and I think it&#39;s just gross.
