Yeah Steven, icecream is what I like to call a "free block", you get an infinite amount of them, because, well, they're free.

1/4 c. of most vanilla ice cream = 1 block carb
15g of most caramel sauces = 1 block carb

Plus about 3-4 blocks of fat per 1/4 c. of ice cream.

In all seriousness:
1/2c vanilla ice cream + 30g of caramel sauce = 4 blocks carb and ~8 blocks of fat.

Add the right amount of some type of protein to balance and you could have a 4 block snack/meal @ 2x fat. Use low fat vanilla instead and you would be about right on the fat.

ewwwwwww.










Soy ice cream sounds like sacrilage to me, but if it tastes good to you. . .



I have been enjoying "Carb-Smart" ice cream by Breyers. My favorite is the chocolate with peanut butter. It is sweetened with splenda (tm) and has a lot less carbs than regular ice cream. Not a perfect meal, but not as bad as regular ice cream (tastes better than 'low fat' to me).

With the extra 'carb' space I am able to put more chocolate syrup on top.

It was suggested that if you should choose to eat ice cream, eat the full fat kind, not the reduced fat. The fat slows the insulin reaction caused by the sugar and makes it better on the system.

I'm addicted to Dreyer's Grand Dulce de Leche flavor at the moment. It's good for me.

mmmmmmm
thinking Homer Simpson

I take my hat off to all you folks who work so hard at following a diet.

Personally I eat for the enjoyment of it.
That being said, I eat very well. But........
I'm not afraid of ice cream, pizza, that kinda thing.

Just thinking out loud

Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip - there is no substitute. Low-carb and low-fat versions are an aberration of nature.

SteveO - Zoners say nothing over 5 blocks per meal. Maybe an exception could be made for you since you're a big guy with lots of muscle. The ice cream will offer you lots of carb and fat blocks. I would balance out the protein blocks by ingesting maybe half a small cow or so. Just a thought...
