I'm all over the cholesterol myth, heck, I eat eggs all the time despite people's "oh those have lots of cholesterol" warnings. But the fact remains that high carb diets are still a major cause of the heart and circulatory problems we've got in America.

Oh no, look what I started...

(by the way, their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is EXCELLENT. And I love the Mint Chocolate Chip, and also the Butter Pecan is good, and... um... what else did I try, the Cookies & Cream... mmmm....)

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

Is anyone familiar with "The 3 Day Diet"? My parents did it when I was a kid. I remember that every evening they had a bowl of ice cream with dinner. It was required as part of the diet. I always thought that was odd.

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

Not EXACTLy the same, but while I tend towards a Paeo-informed diet, after about six weeks strict, getting a LOT looser helps me shed fat and helps with energy, for a month or two. Then I go strict...Sort of like crossfit keeping you from fully adapting to the varying workloads, perhaps not getting too static in the diet helps as well?

Low fat? Low sugar? Man, I don't buy ANYTHING if it says "low" anything. Except maybe canned soup if it's low sodium, I get plenty of sodium in things I eat, and don't need 150% of my RDA from one can of soup.

Heck, it ticks me off when I'm at the store and can't find anything I'm looking for unless I buy a "lowfat" version... like Yogurt.

Low sugar's not a bad way to go.

Low sugar tends to have artificial sweeteners... 6 of 1 half dozen of the other I guess.

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

Shrug. I eat a bowl of ice cream every night too.

I'm pretty "skinny".. although it's mainly cause I have a small stomach and tend not to eat a lot.
