Eat Cheese to Stay Slim

By Lucy Danziger, SELF Editor-in-Chief - Posted on Sun, Dec 20, 2009, 1:59 am PST
I don't know about you, but I've never met a cheese I didn't like. Parmesan, cranberry Brie or anything in between, I'm basically a cheeseaholic. So I was particularly excited to find out that my favorite nibble can actually help keep me slim. That's right—women who ate an ounce of full-fat cheese every day gained fewer pounds over time than those who didn't, according to a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Turns out whole-fat dairy may stoke your metabolism because it contains conjugated linoleic acid. To harness these health properties, each day savor a single ounce (about the size of your thumb) of one of the cheese whizzes below.
