white cheeses better than yellow cheeses

In general, yes, selecting paler cheeses is a good rule of thumb if you’re trying to lose weight. But no matter which type you prefer, cheese is a calorie-dense food. An ounce of cheese—which doesn’t take up much space, as it’s about the equivalent of four dice—is about 100 calories, more than twice as much as you’ll find in the same serving of salmon. Cheddar, for instance, contains 113 calories; colby, 110; gouda, 100; brie, 94.
