Default anyone come across any decent low fat cheese?

I think the main stumbling block in my diet journey is that I eat way too much cheese. Has anyone found a decent cheddar or jack cheese without the skewed fat/protein ratio?

Kraft makes skim milk American slices which are pretty good. Avoid the pre-shredded fat-free cheese, in my experience it tastes like anti-caking agent. Also, it cakes.

Cabot - it isn't like real cheese but it is tolerable.

If you like Swiss style cheese, Costco sells a Jarlsberg Lite that is 50 calories per slice.

Would you consider mozzarella cheese? I buy mine from the deli and a 3oz "brick" is, depending on who you ask, 15-18g of fat, 1-4g carbs, and 18-24g protein. Not sure if that's Low enough for you or if you're willing to eat an ounce at a time. 3oz is quite satisfying to me but YMMV.

Trader Joe's has an imported very low fat, zero carb, Irish cheddar, that tastes good and melts reasonably well.

If you don't know what a Trader Joe's is, you don't have one near you, so, never mind

Trader Joes Lite Shredded Mozzarella is the best shredded I've come across.

Lifetime fat free cheese is good for being fat free. Can be had at whole foods and online. Probably other places too

I've used the fat free shredded cheddar and mozz from kraft as a large source of protein in my diet on and off for many years. The macro's are so perfect I learned to live with the taste.

Currently eating a lot of low fat string cheese. One "stick" has 50 cal, 7g protein. And I think it tastes very good.
