    Can you eat the cheese off of pizzas instead of drinking milk? I noticed Roddy does this.
    Is the fat and tryptophan content a problem?

    It's not as nutrient dense and it might be an issue for people trying to limit their fat intake.

    Cheese does not contain enough of the nutrients needed to oxidize the fat it contains. Its low in B2 relatively speaking compared to its fat content, almost no B3 or B5 or choline. So on its own its not good but if your diet is already very high in nutrients a few ounces of cheese a day shouldnt be problematic. It has a good amount of calcium, phosphorus, zinc which redeems it somewhat.

    Cheese has less tryptophan, but, as was said above, the loss of minerals from the removal of the whey part is very significant. @Amazoniac made a thread about this topic.

    I see. Cheese should be used more as a condiment than a main meal.

    I have never felt good from eating cheese alone. Milk alone, absolutely fine.

    Ray says to drink a glass of OJ with every serving of cheese. I've never heard him say that with milk.

    The lack of b- vitamins could increase homocysteine. Orange juice supplies some, but it still doesn't supply B12 though. Maybe eating a little piece of liver with your cheese could help with that. OJ+ cheese+ liver seems like a good combination.

    Also, cheese lacks carbs, so maybe that's another reason Ray says to drink orange juice with cheese.

    Isn't that because the carbohydrate content in milk is lacking in cheese, and the OJ is used to prevent hypoglycemia from protein in cheese?

    he said he needed a pint of orange juice to balance one egg.
    in a meal aim to eat carbs and protein with ratio 1:1 and preferably 2:1.

    Didnt he say eggs in particular act very powerfully on insulin? Or is it all about the carb/protein ratio?
