Here is another surprise for you — cream cheese. You probably thought it was the cream cheese on the bagel that was adding the inches to your waistline. Actually, it was the bagel! Cream cheese is on the green-for-go list. The fat and dairy components make it slow to digest and so gives a slow sugar release into the bloodstream. It has a glycemic number of zero. That’s right -- zero. It does, however, have 9 grams of fat and about 100 calories in a one-ounce serving. That’s about two tablespoons or so. You won’t want to eat the whole block of cream cheese in one sitting!
