Cheese

1st place: Goat
2nd place: Swiss
3rd place: Cheddar

As cheese ages, it becomes denser in calories. So while goat cheese may taste decadent, it's typically better for the waistline than hard varieties. Swiss is usually higher in saturated fat but earns points for having five times as much calcium. Third place goes to Cheddar: A one-ounce chunk can have as much salt as a serving of potato chips.
