Baked Cheese And Dieting

Cheese might not be the first food you think of when it comes to weight loss except for the keto diet, and yet some research suggests the food may be beneficial for many weight loss diets.. For example, in a study on more than 2,500 men who self-reported their intake of dairy products, a higher consumption of cheese, like baked cheese, specifically was associated with a lower BMI after a five-year follow-up, per an study published in October 2018 in Nutrients.

Some studies have also suggested that cheese may benefit certain health outcomes, too. Cheeses like baked cheese may be linked to better cognition with age, concluded an observational study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in February 2021. And an earlier meta-analysis on 29 cohort studies, which involved more than 938,465 people and was published in the April 2017 issue of the European Journal of Epidemiology, found that participants who ate 10 grams (g) of cheese (or about ⅓ of an ounce) per day had a slightly lower risk of cardiovascular disease than those who did not.
