Garlic butter and a little cheese

It’s dangerous to go shopping when you start to get hungry. There is always some cheese in the basket when I get to the cashier. Today I managed to limit myself to 150g of nice cheddar like cheese.

The dinner I made after eating the cheese was some asparagus, a couple of pork chops and a large amount of garlic butter. The butter was quite simple. 100g of butter, 1 tablespoon of parsley, white pepper and 2 cloves of crushed garlic.

    Tommy – You’ve never quite explained why and when you tried to limit your cheese intake. You’ve mentioned it a few times. Did you find it was leading to weight gain?

      I try to avoid overeating chees for a couple of reasons.

      1) I tend t eat too much once I have started…
      2) When I eat too much I get the protein levels a bit to high in grams compared to the fat. I sometimes try too keep my protein intake a little lower and when I eat both meat and cheese they tend to be a bit high. I have found that a to high protein intake disturbs my ketosis.
      3) Cheese is a bit salty and I tend to drink a lot after eating cheese. This is off course not a problem more than a very short term one related to building weight on fluids… 🙂

      So the only “real” reason is the second one regarding the protein level… The other two are more of a “gut feeling” (not literally)

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I think that makes sense. I’ve had trouble in the past when eating too much cheese… but find normal amounts to be helpful (mainly because it is portable at room temperature). I love your blog and check in almost every day. It’s quite helpful to see what other LCHFers are eating.
