Can We Enjoy Ice Cream Again

Breyers Carbsmart Ice Cream



So what do you think? Half the calories or normal ice cream and less fat.

One of the reasons I ride is so I can afford to skip over low calorie stuff like this. Desserts with names like "death by chocolate" don't worry me although I am still leery of the Vermonster.

1.) This actually tastes pretty good.

2.) Once of the tricks used to make it low carb is through the use of sugar alcohols instead of regular sugars. Sugar alcohols are not absorbed by the body. However consumption of sugar alcohols causes stomach problems for many people, including gas, cramps, and lots of time on the toilet. If you dont know what your tolerance to sugar alcohols is, find out before a recovery day not a century

sounds gross.

Haagen Daaz Vanilla Extra Rich Light
Ingredients: SKIM MILK, SUGAR, CREAM, CORN SYRUP, EGG YOLKS, NATURAL FLAVOR, VANILLA BEAN FLAKES.
200 cal per 1/2 cup, and very very enjoyable.

or Haagen Daaz regular vanilla bean
Ingredients: CREAM, SKIM MILK, SUGAR, EGG YOLKS, NATURAL FLAVOR, GROUND VANILLA BEANS.
290 cal per 1/2 cup also very enjoyable.

pass on the artificial stuff.

I prefer the Haagen Daaz (sp?) Mayan Chocolate or the Coffee flavor. Good stuff.

Half the fat and none of the taste.

Make room for real treats rather than chemically manufactured "food."

There are several decent low cal, low fat, and even fat free ice cream. If its been long enough since you've enjoyed the good stuff, you can fool yourself pretty well. Many of the low fat ones have good ingredients and real sugar, but are just made with low fat or fat free milk...I get down!

This is the only time I will agree with someone from Chicago. That's why I ride too. My weakness is frozen custard. That make Haagen Dazs look like low cal.

If you ride enough you can eat whatever you want in moderation. With my normal workouts at riding a ton on the weekends, its normal for me to burn over 6000 calories a week. Its the main reason I workout so much, so I can eat whatever, and still be in great shape.

If it's any consolation to you I never mind the 5-hour drive to Door County for Not Licked Yet frozen custard.

this is pretty much the only time of year i really eat ice cream, so i may as well eat the real thing. I guess if i was really on a diet or something i'd eat the low cal stuff. I've tried the no sugar ice cream and i have to say, it's actually very good! it shows you how we don't really need sugar as much as we think we do. Another thing i like, the So Good frozen soya dessert.

But these days it's real ice cream. Right now i have chapmans' mocha almond fudge in my freezer. it was on special last week and since i have a small freezer, i can pretty much buy only one decent sized container at a time. my other faves: Hagen Dasz chocolate, coffee and vanilla almond; Breyer's chocolate, choc-vanilla and maple walnut.

1+ on bypassing the weird "lite" and diet ice creams. Just eat real ice cream in moderation. it isn't that bad for you...

Edy's Grand Chocolate
milk, cream, skim milk, sugar, cocoa processed with alkali, cellulose gum, mono and diglycerides, guar gum, carrageenan, dextrose

(not that I know what all those ingredients are)

Portion control works. Breyer's French Vanilla is only 140 calories per half cup.

The last thing in the world I worry about is calories / carbs whatever. I can eat what I like. However I am Lactose intolerant. I have to drink milk that has been modified to eliminate Lactose. The other way I can drink the nectar of the gods is to boil it and add turmeric and ginger. I get bloating, back problems, gas, sleepiness, and I blame my prostate enlargement on milk. (It's benign now)

However having said all this, I stay away from ice cream generally but I love the stuff. Stay away from the cheap stuff. If you're gonna eat ice cream bear in mind that you are taking in zero nutrition because it is so cold that it never digests anyways despite what people think. The more expensive stuff is more likely to have natural ingredients which means that you are avoiding the chemical soup stuff.

Heat a large pot of water to a consistent 98.6 degrees F.

Put a cup of ice cream in a baggie and drop it into the water. Apply external heat as necessary to keep the water at 98.6F.

How long do you think the ice cream is going to remain "cold"?

And that's only if you swallowed it all at once. Most people eat ice cream a bite at a time. It's melted and near body temperature by the time it hits the stomach. Digestion (i.e. absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream) occurs in the small intestine anyway, not the stomach.

+1. I've heard some funny things, but not digesting ice cream because "it is cold" is pretty far out there. I googled around to see if I could even find one crackpot site with the same claim, but found nothing.
