Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

Either go with all natural vanilla, all natural French vanilla or the organics. The rest add corn syrup and other crap.

The natural flavor is the vanilla beans.

Here is a good website to see what is in each (wfs): http://www.icecreamusa.com/products/index.cfm?c=8&b=1

No Breyers for sale here. The closest thing I found is Hershey's chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bars. Hardly the same thing. Cartons of ice cream don't seem to exist in my part of Japan.

But I'm really curious, I'd love to help. I wonder if adding ice cream to my late-night after-MMA practice protein shake would give me better fat loss than basing it on water, or mixing in a frozen banana and milk. It would taste better, I know that...

lol, I usually hit up 5-7 servings which is about 1/3-1/2 of the half galloners. More or less 5-7*140 cals or about 700-900 cals worth of ice cream.

Don't know how healthy that is though..

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

You ice-cream swilling guys are killin' me. I'm so jealous I could spit. You have no idea how chubby I would get eating just the damned half-cup serving every night. And who eats just a half-cup of ice cream? Nobody human.

Bah, humbug.

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

I only crave ice cream in summer, fortunately - trouble is I tend to eat the entire tub in one go.
There is an organic store down the road that does these incredible farmhouse ice creams. One of my favourites is the rose, almond and cardamom flavour, which sounds odd, but tastes amazing.
I'm also rather partial to Waitrose own brand fig and honey flavour.
I never buy the low fat rubbish. If you're going to eat ice cream at all, get the best stuff possible.

Sad to say, but I measure my ice cream out.

I knew it! You're not human, George!

Tell me you are strong enough to eat just one half-cup of ice cream. That should be a WOD. "Eat one-half cup of ice cream, then stop." See how many people could do it "as Rx'd."

Bah, humbug, I say again!

Susie

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

seems like ice cream has been the most popular nutrition topic for the last week . I guess it should be promoted to the status of supplement by now

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

I missed this thread earlier. I've been doing a similar thing too, eating a 1/2 pint of Ben & Jerry's every night for extra calories. I started with Chocolate Fudge Brownie but moved to Chubby Hubby after exploring the ingredients/content on every flavor in the huge B&J display at a WalMart Supercenter. Chubby Hubby has a bit more fat with less sugar and almost 2x as much protein as all the others, mostly due to the peanut butter content.

This idea isn't that far off Ripetoe's "drink a gallon of whole milk every day". I decided a combination of whole milk and Ben & Jerry's is a more achievable goal.

B&J's chubby hubby is my absolute favorite ice cream in creation. Chocolate covered peanut butter stuffed pretzels in vanilla fudge ice cream.
