I am suppose to eat hard cheeses, probably benefit from the butyric acid, but it doesn't work well. Whenever I eat it my stool size shrinks, may burn, may move slower to barely at all, and becomes much darker brown but not approaching black direction like sugar and wheat. I only consume the sheep's milk, manchego, raw, but it doesn't help.
On the other side, the other cheeses don't do anything wrong to me that I can notice. That can actually make me go. It probably has to do with really bad insulin reception.
Dos, If your stool size shrinks it might be constipating you, and perhaps your body is reacting to the casein? I try cheese periodically because I'd like to get back to eating it but I think my body doesn't like it right now. Perhaps later when I've done more healing. Lin
DoS - sounds like something is not normal or right in those cheeses? What is your genotype or is that a difficult/unresolved question? I'd certainly be tempted to go with the cheeses that seem to suit you, especially at the moment
DoS, I ate alot of cheese and a large variety, too, growing up...and was often constipated...could have been meat/cheese combo.. Anyway, swami only gives me manchego as super and neutrals are feta, romano, parmesan,gouda,and gorgonzola. I can eat all of those with no problem..I just choose not to so as not to aggravate my sinuses. What about yogurt? Swami lists that under super also. Might keep things moving? (Thought because we are both A, secretors and tasters we might have that in common.)

I carefully keep my portion/frequency within the guidelines. Otherwise, I feel sure it would turn against me. So I really don't eat a large volume and it's only a couple of times a week.
I eat Manchego and it suits me fine and Pecorino (also sheep) does also, but I don't like it as well. Cow milk cheeses that are diamonds, I will eat very rarely if I have no other options, but more often than that will cause mucous.

These are my superfood cheeses and I love every single one of them, I'm so sorry for anyone who can't eat cheese! I get 3-4 ounces 5x a week and that is usually about how much I eat. Wish I could afford the Gruyere and Jarlsberg more often, I usually stick with colby/jack (jack is neutral). I remember growing up my mother thought that no one should eat too much cheese because it was constipating, but she is an O and I am an A and I do not find that to be the case for me.

I regularly eat some mozzarella or parmesan... The mozz. is neutral for me, but it is a superfood for DD and it is less expensive than colby or cheddar, and I like it fine... I have never noticed it slowing the bowel. I usually only have that problem if I am too toxic.
