Goat cheese will help you lose weight
Try: Chevre, feta, pecorino Romano
Why is goat better for you than cow's milk cheese? Goat cheese contains more protein and higher amounts of niacin, calcium, iron, and potassium.
While goat and sheep's milk cheese contain more fat, the fat globules are small, which facilitates digestion. They also contain higher amounts of MCT (that stuff that helps digestion from before!).
An added health benefit to choosing goat and sheep's milk cheese over cow's milk is higher levels of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). CLA is found primarily in the meat and dairy of grass-fed animals. Studies show that CLA might protect against cardiovascular disease and contain anti-carcinogenic properties. Next time you want a creamy cheese spread, toss the heavy cream cheese, and choose a lighter goat cheese.
