Well pasta, if you eat whole grain pasta and make the sauce yourself (homemade pasta) then it is fine and you are getting some fibre. I would avoid the white pasta and processes packaged pasta like macaroni.

Cheese is very very high in fat, and is not totally worth what you get in it. People take it sometimes for protein which is rediculous to me, just have an egg or some meat. People are often sesitive to cheese also because of the dairy content. It is very high in calories and if you want calcium then just take a calcium supplement or find other foods rich in calcium like plain yogurt or vegetables. If you must eat cheese you can eat goat cheese or now they have vegetable cheese which are both good and a little healthier. Cheese also contains sodium which almost all people already have to much of.

Hope this helps
