7. Go easy on the cheese.

Use a lower fat instead of regular cheese, or eat less of the real thing. Ounce for ounce, the melted cheddar cheese oozing from the top of your hamburger has more calories, fat, and saturated fat than the burger. Talk about top heavy. Try using a lower fat variety that actually tastes and melts like the real thing.

Or, use less of a strong, regular cheese. A sprinkle of feta, a smattering of grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano, or a smear of soft goat cheese can satisfy your yen without damaging your waist. Invest in a good cheese knife that allows you to cut paper-thin slices of your favorite hard cheeses.
