    Low Fat Natural/Greek Yoghurt and Hard Cheese

    Low Fat Natural/Greek Yoghurt and Hard Cheese 9th Feb 18 at 6:12 PM

    I am trying to reduce my cholesterol. I am not over weight and I eat already mostly healthy and the areas I don't I am already making changes ie sugar laden snacks.

    I cook from scratch so I don't eat ready meal type things except when we have the odd take away.

    I don't eat anything 'low fat' as I have always been led to believe they are just bulked up with sugars or other bad ingredients.

    However I do see a lot advice advising low fat cheese. I dont eat a lot of cheese but when I do I eat mature cheddar cheese. If I bought a low fat version would it just have some fat removed or would it be bulked up with unhealthy ingredients?

    Same with natural and greek yoghurt.. I eat a little a day but is it worth changing to low fat or will nasties be replaced with the fat?

    Cheese and unflavored natural yogurt will be fine only ingredients should be milk regardless if it's full fat or semi skimmed.
