Adela Cojab suffered from an intense cheese addiction. Now the student tells how she managed to escape.

A New York City law student has overcome her addiction to cheese after basing almost her entire diet around it. Adela Cojab told the New York Post that during her freshman year of college, she ate copious amounts of white cheddar and parmesan almost every day. “I would stop at either Morton Williams or Whole Foods and just buy cheese and literally eat a block of cheese with my hands,” she told the New York Post.

Despite her attempts to eat a salad, she often ended up “eating Parmesan with Caesar dressing, with lettuce on the side.” However, she seemed to attribute her addiction to financial reasons rather than medical ones. Cojab explained that it was cheaper to buy cheese than a $12 salad.

Dr. Neal Barnard, author of the book “The Cheese Trap” and associate professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine, pointed out the possible causes of such cheese addiction, according to the New York Post. He said that the high fat and salt concentration as well as the protein casein in cheese could cause people to become addicted. “Cheese contains opiates that attach to the same brain receptors as fentanyl or other narcotics,” he said.

Cojab’s addiction to cheese led to health problems, including severe weight gain and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Her period also stopped for five months.

The 27-year-old ended up attending a two-week, thousand-dollar wellness retreat to get her eating disorder under control. She found a healthy way to control her love of cheese without endangering her health. She also lost the kilos she had eaten. These days, when choosing her cheese, Cojab opts for a “lighter” mozzarella instead of a Vermont cheddar or parmesan, the report says.
