If I eat a whole block of cheese in one go, will I put on more or less weight that if I eat a small peice of it each day?

I'm going to cautiously say more, since the excess energy gained all in one go is more likely to be stored as fat, whereas it will be used up as a quicker energy source if consumed in small, daily portions.

I'm not sure though.

One thing to bear in mind is that this doesn't happen without influence from other effects; eating other foods, different amount of excercise.. it'd be difficult to conduct a good scientific experiment controlling the other variables to test.

Definitely more. Cheese is like, well, very "binding" so if you eat a whole block in one go you could be plugged up for quite a while.
