Um, I eat it. I buy the single-serving packs (comes in a pack of 4), where each one is 90 calories or so. That way, I won't just end up eating the whole big container if I'm hungry. I get the low-fat b/c I can't stand the fat-free. I find that it's fairly filling for the amount of calories. But I wouldn't go too overboard - it always comes down to the calorie content of foods. If you eat less calories than you burn, you'll lose weight. Incorporate healthy foods that you like, and control your calories, that's really the whole secret! There's no miracle weight-loss food out there... Unfortunately!

Be very careful with "fad" diets-- it could help you take off pounds, but at what expense?

Safest bet- eat a balanced, low fat, low calorie diet and exercise regularly. Sorry this really is the only thing that is guaranteed to work....

I have indeed heard of what you are speaking of. It is not so much a fad diet as it is eating certain foods for certain results. Because cottage cheese is low in fat and high in protien and has essential calcium etc. It is a choice food for a bit more then normal comsumption. I try and have 1/2 a cup to 1 cup per day! Low cal and good for you!

i eat low fat cottage cheese or fat free yogurt every morning for breakfast! it is great becuase they are both low fat, low calories, filling, and a great source or calcium and protein

as someone who lost 40lbs in 7 months, and has kept it off for 3 so far, let me say calorie counting is NOT the only way.

I don't count calories, I don't avoid fat, I don't even avoid REAL sugar; lately, I've barely been working out. I limit dairy and grain consumption. My focus is on meat and veggies- and not just white meat. I don't eat processed foods, I don't go near glucose/fructose or artificial sweetners.

And I'm healthier than ever.

What do you guys think about those Cottage Doubles? I think they're made by a company that starts with a "B"... but it's lowfat cottage cheese w/ fruit topping... good? bad? thoughts?

Cotage cheese is ok, can be good for you in moderate amounts, but no miracle food, just like anything else.

I think anything low in fat and high in protein will help you, esp in the am. Protein fills you up. Cottage Cheese, an egg, some carbs and I am ready to go in the morning.

I have been able to substitute low-fat cottage cheese for "real" cheese in several recipes and have been pleased with the results in taste and weight loss.

11:16 AM poster- you're talking about the Cottage Doubles from Breakstones! They taste great. Low-fat cottage cheese is 70 calories for 1/2 a cup, and the Cottage Doubles are about 150 calories. If you are looking for something healthier, real fruit and low-fat cottage cheese are the way to go, BUT occaisionally I'll have a Double, cuz they are delish.
