    You could use light sour cream and Neufchatel cheese for a calorie saving. Also you could reduce the amount of nuts to 1/2 cup total - toasting them lightly will enhance the flavor.

    Also there are a number of healthier or lower calorie cheesecake recipes posted, one of those might work better for you.

    Actually, the nuts are the healthiest part of the recipe.
    You can sub the full fat cream cheese with light/low fat cream cheese (aka Neufchatel cheese). Cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup, substitute egg beaters for the 5 whole eggs, and low fat sour cream for the regular (full fat) sour cream.
    Whatever you do, do not sub fat free cream cheese and/or sour cream for the low fat cream cheese and sour cream. Fat Free products will not work well in this recipe.
    Keep in mind that reducing the fat in the recipe will change the flavor and texture a bit.

    The other alternative is to use a different recipe. Perhaps a cheesecake that uses cottage cheese instead of cream cheese, or an Italian cheesecake that is made with ricotta.
