I love cheese. However 2 months ago I gave up dairy except for butter. I'll work it back in when I'm healthier, maybe. I'm finding I can live comfortably without it. My main challange now is to eat 5-6 servings of green leaves a day, at 2 cups / serving. That's hard. I wish I could like kale.
I adore cheese and eat it a few times per week. I found a great organic raw sharp cheddar that I buy every time I go to the market. When I don't go raw, I enjoy bleu, sharp cheddar, goat's milk, sheep's milk, and mozzarella cheeses! I also consume dairy in the form of Kerrygold and other European butters. I don't drink milk.
I'm about 90% primal now, and one of my guilty pleasures in my 10% is ice cream which I probably have once a month, if that.

Weight does NOT equal health -- ditch the scale, don't be a slave to it!
Not at all. I consume absolutely zero dairy of any kind and I honestly don't miss it or ever have the desire to consume it.
As much raw organic cheese as I can afford 100-200g a day. I woul eat a pound or more if I could afford it. I think everybody should, I don't see a reason to not eat it. I think it falls in the liver-eggs category whwn it comes to nutrition. And it tastes amazing.
I bloody well love dairy (but can appreciate why others do not).
If I could subsist off cheese alone, I certainly would. Alas, I cannot.
Cheese is a (relatively) inexpensive protein source, especially for me as I don't like egg (yet).
I like practically every kind of cheese. Goat cheese is beautiful for my salads, Meunster (an American style cheese) is great for snacking, and I'm growing quite fond of Queso Fresco / Queso Blanco (Mexican White Cheese, very close to Farmer Cheese).
The latter is potentially least "Primal" in terms of the PB. However, it's quite a bit the least refined cheese possible.
Soon: Making my own cheese.
