    I'm eating less meat now and considering more dairy for protein.

    What are the best choices for dairy?

    I don't have access to raw milk products.

    I don't tolerate pasteurized milk well, but am fine w/ other milk products. I really like cheese and sour cream especially.

    I've read a few threads about people eating Peat-inspired diets consuming more dairy and less meat. Interested to know what are the best sources of dairy for this. And reasons for choosing full-fat, low-fat, fat-free?

      Also you'd have to consume a lot of dairy to get enough protein, and along with that comes a lot of sugar/carbs.

        Dairy has comparable protein of better quality actually, and i'd like to see any meat touch cottage cheese in protein ratio. and who cares about carbs? Plus only milk and yogurt contain a lot of lactose, cheese doesnt. Parmesan and gouda are excellent choices for cheeses, and cottage cheese can give you all the protein you need, 32oz is 112g

          I'm not avoiding carbs. Even without trying to avoid, I usually end up 250-300g per day max. And much happier with the food choices available.

          A lot of meat is no longer appetizing.

          ETA: I'm only 5'4" and around 105-110 lbs, so my protein requirements are not very high.

            Thanks...

            How do you determine which protein is of better quality?

              Amino acid ratios. American cows have higher tryptophan in their milk, but the calcium ratio helps convert excess to vitamin b3 instead of serotonin. Daisy brand cottage cheese has no gums or junk in it, btw, it's what I eat.

                Full fat cottage cheese (ie real cottage cheese) is 11% protein by weight. Low fat cottage cheese is little different. Most meats are around 20%. Source is nutritiondata.com

                  Real is subjective. Besides full fat cottage cheese doesn't exist in stores, it's 4% at most

                  2% is 56g for 320 calories

                    I second this. Tastes great, loaded with protein.

                      Skyr, ricotta, and paneer also contain a good whack of protein.

                        I like raw cream from A2 cows. Good bang for the buck, too! Not for protein, though. Dairy is not for protein, it's for fat.

                          Don't you live on a tropical island in Asia? For me, getting enough protein from cheese would mean sending my calories way out of whack from fat intake. If you have whole milk products available, try any of those. Cream is a good source of fat calories, but not a good source of protein.

                            I found Daisy brand cottage cheese for the first time here and got some. But I won't have a regular supply. We live on an island and only a few grocery stores import cheese. Most are cheddar, mozzarella, with tons of other ingredients in it.

                              Ricotta cheese I've found here have a long ingredient list...
