Ice cream once a day- OK?

So I eat healthy; no fast food, no sugar, no snacks, etc., but I love ice cream- do you guys think it is OK for me to eat ice cream once a day (maybe a cup or so)? I've lost 25 lbs since May (wisdom teeth pulled, the girl that I thought was "the one" dumped me after 3 years, moved to a new country- all contributed), so am trying to gain the weight back.

I do crossfit 4-5 times a week and walk at least 3 miles a day. I also have a high metabolism so have trouble gaining weight (I don't want to do the gallon a day of milk thing because it gives me acne and plays havoc on my stomach), so I figure ice cream (and a little fat) won't hurt- am I wrong?

Re: Ice cream once a day- OK?

Search for the "Breyer's Every night" thread, it has some good stuff on eating ice cream every night/ couple times per week. For gaining weight, just eat alot and lift heavy. Crossfit + caloric surplus adds more BF than doing heavy lifting with a metcon here or there. You might want to consider doing ME BB with CF. Basically it's SS-CF-SS-off and repeat. This subject has been discussed thoroughly and a search would be more useful than explaining it all here.

Have you plugged a normal day of eating for you into Fitday? I recommend doing that because that way you have a baseline to compare to when eating more to gain weight. Besides eating more fat and some ice cream, make sure you eat more protein than your LBM and you should be set.

Personally, I could not control myself to eat just 1 cup of ice cream, it's impossible. Whenever I do eat ice cream, it's usually a 1/3 of the container, so a big bowlfull. More power to you if you can do it.
