  • Yes. Be careful of too much full fat dairy, though. But every once in a while its alright :-)

  • Cheese is considered a "binder" in the colon. I dearly love cheese, but even when its part of a special short term diet, I eventually eliminate it b/c it has alot of fat cals, but mainly b/c it creates a sludge in the colon and I like to help my belly become flat. :)

  • Vegetables with hummus would be a better choice.

  • I love cheddar cheese too, but it is high in calories and fat. I buy only the cheese made with 2% milk instead of whole, and that helps, but I also limit myself to just a couple of slices every now and then.
