    Question Parmesan Cheese: Good or Bad?

    I did a search and couldn't find anything, and I'm scared to ask this question in fear that the response will be in the negative but what's the deal with parmesan cheese? Man I love parmesan cheese. I make a rice dish with eggs that's begging for parmesan cheese and it tastes out of control good when I pour parmesan all over it, and I'm wondering whether it's harmless and may in fact add protein, or whether I'm just adding to the fat that I'll have to cut later.

    Please God let them respond positively.

    Just look at the stats on the back. If I remember correctly there wasn't a whole lot good or bad about it. There might have been a lot of sodium but I don't remember.

    It's cheese just like any other cheese, only it has higher sodium. But it also has about 2 grams less fat per ounce than cheddar. From a calorie standpoint, all cheeses are pretty equal - approx 110 calories per oz. As long as hypertension isn't an issue, shake some parmesan on it if you want. Don't go overboard. Measure. At 110 calories per ounce it would be pretty easy to eat too much of it.

    Sorry, but that couldnt be farther from the truth. Cheese is good for you in moderation as are other dairy products. As a rule of thumb, hard cheeses are better than soft cheeses when it comes to macros. As long as you have room in your daily caloric intake, cheese is fine.

    there arent many calories in parmesan. 2 teaspoons only has 20 calories, 1.5 fat, and 2 grams of protein. a sprinkling of it shouldnt be more than 2 teaspoons anyways. i use it and dont feel guilty.

    yeah, that's what i noticed tonight (but mine says ONE tbsp. = 25 cal). if it is 110cal/ounce as someone mentioned up top, then that's just a product of it being really light, so an ounce is probably a lot (I'd consider 4 tablespoons a lot, and that's not more than 100cal according to the back). Anyways, I'm bulking, so it seems although immense amounts would do damage, in relative moderation it seems totally harmless. YAY for parmesan!

    as a side note, I'd recommend the natural stuff (either preshredded or in a brick in the dairy section) as opposed to the stuff that you get in a can. A little more pricey, but it doesn't contain any additives. I don't trust canned cheese that doesn't have to be refrigerated.

    Ummm, i'm sure some of them do, as it's just a little cheese. Like any dairy product, they may not eat it pre-contest, but during training, yeah.

    Cool Moderation

    I know it's an annoying non-answer but... Food is neither good nor bad; it's just food. It all depends on your diet plan and personal goals.

    I do not consume cheese as a part of my regular diet because it tends to have a lot of fat and sodium. Basically, I don't need it. I get protein elsewhere, so I'm gaining very little from consuming it. Also, I really like cheese. I have a hard time moderating my own intake. Best for me just to avoid it altogether.

    That being said, if you can limit yourself to a tablespoon or two of parm, it isn't likely to affect much.

    It's not that bad, I guess it depends how much you eat and how strict your diet is.

    Personally, I allow myself a good spoonful of parmesan over pasta.
