Cabot’s team of Registered Dietitians will guide you through all you need to know about eating healthy with dairy. Cabot cheddars fit into many different diets and lifestyles ranging from healthy weight loss to managing dietary restrictions.
While most registered dietitians agree that any cheese can be a part of a balanced, healthy approach to weight loss, choosing a lighter cheese may help cut calories overall. Cabot Sharp Light and Sharp Extra Light Cheddars are great options if you're trying to lose a few pounds or just maintain your current weight. They're lower in calories, fat and sodium compared to other light cheeses, but still packed with protein and nutrients.
Diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2, is a major health concern in America today and is largely influenced by diet. People living with Type 1 diabetes do not produce the insulin needed for their cells to process sugar (glucose), whereas Type 2 is characterized by the body's inability to use the insulin being produce. Regardless of type, though, food can have a large impact on diabetes management. Fortunately, dealing with diabetes doesn't have to mean giving up foods you love!
For individuals living with diabetes, cheese is a protein-rich option to replace high-carbohydrate foods and may help keep blood sugar stable. In addition, increased consumption of low-fat and fat-free dairy may protect against weight gain and insulin resistance syndrome, two primary risk factors of Type 2 Diabetes.
