Hi J&G! Welcome to Ask! I hope you like it here. There's a very good chance you will be able to incorporate low fat and fat free cheese in your diet. I saw on your previous question that sodium was addressed. Just get a daily mg of sodium allowance from your doctor. You can probably get it by phone if it isn't already in your patient discharge and aftercare info. Check with your doctor so you can find the types that are okay for you. You may have to decrease salt in other ways to keep cheese on your plate, but it's worth it! I have several family members with heart issues. Fat free ricotta is a staple for my dad. It's all over the South Beach Diet. He loves cheese! It does take awhile to get used to the texture and flavor difference. I can't blame you for looking for ways to keep enjoying cheese! My father is 75. He had a stent put in 15 years ago. Because he watched his diet and quit smoking, he hasn't had a single problem since. My stepfather (82, never smoked) refused to change his diet. He had a triple bypass and regrets it! I was really glad to see someone looking for answers. Good luck and again, welcome to Ask.com!
A heart patient can eat fat free cheese. This is because one is expected to eat low-fat diet so as to balance your diet in order to prevent any unnecessary negative outcomes. You need to visit a doctor for more details.
