So I have been Paleo mostly until this point..and have found that higher fat low carb works for me.
But I am finding myself quite limited, so i was wounding where Cheese stands with regards to other lacto things..in regards to insulin response etc.
I don't do butter, cream, or any other lacto stuff.
If fat loss is the goal with a low carb diet, can Cheese be used as a fat source? or is that just defeating the purpose?
What lacto items have the least insulinogenic effects?
Perhaps a rating from this list of least impactful to most impactful :

High fat content = lower insulin response usually. If you don't react negatively to dairy then feel free to use it. For many, consuming dairy stalls weight loss.
Butter/Heavy Cream are least likely to create a insulin response while cheese/milk will. I'm not sure why but I've heard aged cheeses are much better.
There are so many posts on here and on Mark's Daily apple about dairy you should probably look into them.
