The 6 Protein-Packed Cheeses You Should Be Eating For Muscle-Building
Don’t be afraid to grab some cheese if you’re trying to build muscle – or lose weight. The latest news: a Danish study reports that a daily dose won’t raise your total or LDL cholesterol levels.
“Even though full-fat cheese has more calories than diet versions, it keeps you satiated for a much longer time,” says Alan Aragon, a Men’s Health nutrition advisor. “Plus, it tastes a million times better.”
Just be careful not to over indulge, because the calories can add up. Limit your cheese snacking to once in any given day – and know these stats.
