Cheese Types Carb Chart - Atkins

Cheese is a delicious, nutritious food. It is in essence milk from a cow (or sheep, goat, etc.) that has been processed and solidified. Therefore, cheese is full of calcium and protein. It's naturally filling.

Cheese can make just about any meal very tasty. It's a perfect snack, too! Just don't put it on bland bread. Try it on a slice of cucumber or on a pepperoni ring!

Here are carb charts for various types of cheese. Unless otherwise noted, all amounts are for 2 Tbsp. That's about three slices of the type that goes onto crackers (small squares).

All values are net carbs. There's no fiber in cheese ;)
