i love ice cream

i know . . this is very bad of me . . .but

i love ice cream!!!!!

ahh!!! i LOVE it!! my boyfriend buys it all the time (we live together) and if i know it is in there, i end up having some every day till the thing is gone!

the worst part, is that the more i eat it, the more i want to eat it the next day, and when it's all gone, i'm rummaging around the kitchen trying to find something that will fill my ice cream void!! anyone else do this???

Try Edy's line of ice cream that has the label "half the fat." I don't even notice the fact that it's half the fat anymore.

Tell your boyfriend to stop buying it. Once you give up icecream for a week or so you'll no longer have the cravings.

When I have an icecream craving, I buy a reduced fat icecream in the small container and measure out a serving each night. Compared to the amount I used to eat it seems like too little at first, but take the time to savor the taste and it's actually more satisfying than mindlessly gobbling a huge bowl full.

I agree with the above, savor what you love! If you don't, you'll eventually end up rebelling against your own rules and bingeing on something. Ask yourself if you really want ice cream, and if it really tastes good and have a bit every day. What's really wrong with having one serving of ice cream every day?

One serving of ice cream a day is probably what causes you to remain fat/unsatisfied with your weight. I can see having ice cream on say, your own birthday, if it is your favorite food. That said, I don't think ice cream is a food that should be kept in the house.

If I want ice cream I get the reduced fat Breyers (their carb smart is wonderful BTW!) and measure out 1 serving and enjoy it!

I also really like the skinny cow ice cream sandwiches.

I have no problem regularly fitting a small treat into my day. However I definitely plan for it! I measure my portion, I know how many calories it is and I adjust the rest of my meals/snacks accordingly.
