Let me know whether eating too much of ice cream adds fat to our body. I was thin a year before and one of my friends told me to have lot of ice cream so that I gain weight. It was really working as I added upto 15 kgs in a year. Do you know whether it is really good for health?

Yes, you can gain weight eating ice cream, and it is high in fat. You would be better off lifting weights and eating lean protein. You do not just want to gain weight, but you want to gain muscle as well. Eating ice cream is okay in moderation, but not good to eat too much.

Too much of anything may harm your health. I guess if you eat a lot of ice cream and don't exercise you can become fat. But there is a better way to gain weight. You should see your doctor. He/she should know how you can gain weight without harming your health. The only way I know is weightlifting.

well, eating a lot of ice cream would really make you gain weight because it has a lot of calories. but then, it's not healthy to eat a lot of ice creams. also because it has a lot of calories and some unhealthy stuffs plus eating too much cold food would be bad for your throat. i suggest you gain weight by eating nutritious foods like veggies and meat. ^__^

The calcium in ice cream is definitely good for you. As for the fat, it would depend on the person, of course, and on the ice cream. There are many brands of low-fat ice creams for those who must limit their fat intake and who would like to lose weight (or at least not gain). Annie
