    I would use it as a treat. I remember this video from an influencer Thomas Delauer:



    If I get a cheese board after a meal out, I ask the establishment to provide more hard cheese than soft, but I wouldn't think twice about having some soft cheese occasionally.

    Hi there, do you mean in terms of carbs?, then yes, perfectly fine, fill your boots.

    The only cheeses I choose to avoid are those that are low/reduced fat stuff.

    Brie cheese has 1 gram / 100 grams carbs so it's OK to eat.

    I not a fan of it though, as I not like the sloppy texture of it.

    As far as I'm concerned Brie is medicinal :)

    Brie is good and nutritious, as are most cheeses.
