Healthy Choices for Healthy Weights

Remember the good ole' Diet Plate Special? The scoop of cottage cheese on a lettuce leaf beside the canned peach half has been a Diner's menu staple for years. Is there something to that 'dieter's delight'?


Turns out those Diners had it right! Research shows that including higher protein foods (like cottage cheese) with meals and snacks can help you feel full, longer and may actually help you eat less. And that means that you can manage the munchies during the day! Including protein-rich foods while losing weight also helps keep your lean muscles strong while your body burns fat.
