Most cheeses get the majority of their calories from fat, and even the lower fat cheeses are rich in artery-clogging saturated fat:
|Cheeses||Percent of Calories from Fat||Percent of Fat that is Saturated Fat|
|Mozzarella Cheese, part skim||56%||64%|
|Kraft Velveeta Spread||65%||66%|
|Kraft Velveeta Light||43%||67%|
|Ricotta, whole milk||68%||64%|
|Ricotta, part skim||51%||62%|
