    This stuff is beautiful...

    Moist, creamy, just the right density to feel like REAL cheesecake...
    Granola crust, rather than Graham cracker, has a lil' cinnamon in it...

    Knockout!

    The cheese is all fat.

    The crust makes up a relatively small proportion of the volume and calories.

    Dextrose can be replaced by more "sweet dense" fructose.

    So you might reduce a few calories but the corpuscles will still have to line up single file to squeeze through those coronary arteries! ;)

    So, uh... what's your point?

    ;)

    I've had two pieces in 6 months... and I'm in BLAZING ketosis...
    That fat is what I'm using for fuel...

    Small little fat deposits get burned up first cause they're so small...
    My belly's gonna take a lil' more time...

    Actually, the calories in cream cheese are made up of 90% fat. But the point is that its low in carbohydrates, as the header for this thread so plainly states.

    No one following a low carb diet would consider sucrose, dextrose, fructose, lactose or most any other "ose" as appropriate for their nutritional plan. One exception is sucralose, aka Splenda.

    Healthy fat, in and of itself, has nothing to do with the inflammation of arterial walls that leads to athersclerosis. In fact, many fats exhibit a protective effect against such arterial disease (organic butter, non-hydrogenated coconut oil). Add in processed sugar and/or trans fats, and you have the formula for cardiovascular disease.

    My diet runs 50-65% fat and my cholesterol is 150. What's yours?

    Sugar free since 2001...
