I dabbled with the Slimming World diet after having my first child but never attended weekly meetings, but in the last couple of months I have been going along each week in an attempt to get rid of those few extra pounds that just linger. The recipes for low fat desserts and meals have been outstanding and I needed to let everyone know about this amazing food that can help you through those sweet toothed cravings without sabotaging your efforts to lose the weight! Quark can be found with the cheese and yoghurts in the refrigerator aisle of your local supermarket. I buy mine in Sainsbury’s and it comes in a blue and white tub, 250g, similar in size to cottage ... Read the complete review

Quark is a 'virtually fat free soft cheese' which I have started using since I started Slimming World, as it is 'free' meaning you can eat as much of it as you want. Before this I had never even heard of it. When I started the plan, I bought some in my first weekly shop, but I didn't really know what I was doing with it and I tried a bit on its own (which was pretty awful), left it to go out of date, and threw it in the bin.

It is very low in fat, just 70 calories per 100 grams compared to 400 grams for full fat cream cheese! However quark tastes nothing like cream cheese, eaten alone its very sharp and actually sticks to the roof of your mouth! In fact I find quark really revolting! However when quark is used in ...

I first came across Quark many years ago, in the 1970's, when visiting Germany as a child. Since then, I have bought it on quite a few occasions, especially when I am trying to be healthy and lose a little weight. All the Quark that I have come across has been produced in Germany. It is a soft cheese that is very low in fat, and is therefore very good for those who want to lose some weight. It is very versatile, and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. I have found Quark to be really good mixed in with pasta sauces instead of cream or a higher fat cheese. It makes the sauce a lot more thick and creamy, without adding a lot of calories.
