How much ice cream you can eat in one day, and which do you prefer? Regular or diet eat ice cream? I mean milk and cream or soy milk and sweetener? I do not think that ice cream helps to lose weight, even i want.. but I guess not overly greasy. I heard that is the most recommended dessert, of course .. in moderation, except the ice cream with caramel and chocolate .. But .. this with caramel i really like, but vanilla is my favorite .. I love ice cream and I can not be limited to 100 grams! Even last night, watching to a movie, I removed, a box of chocolate ice cream with pieces of chocolate (!) That said 700 g.. And when I feel so guilty .. I prefer to skip dinner and replace it with an ice box. When you go shopping you buy ice cream in small packs of 100 grams or 1 kg, 2 kg ? Gain weight or lose weight?

Of course it can help you gain weight because ice cream is a carbohydrate and carbohydrates are stored in your adipose tissue if its not used up. Adipose issue are the fat tissues under your skin that makes you look fat because fats are stored in there. And it should be something you need to have restrictions with when you are eating it. If you are going to eat it everyday then that will help you gain weight faster. I think its quite obvious that its really going to help you gain some weight.

i just cannot believe that ice cream helps me gain weight or keeps me fat. i have always love ice cream and any other creamy food but i still have the same body figure and weight. i guess what really ice cream gives us is more sugar. so diabetics who still love ice cream prefer low calories or sugar-free ice cream.

I eat lots of ice cream a day. It can be my breakfast, dinner or lunch just eating one makes me full already. It doesnt matter to me whether its regular ice cream or a diet ice cream. For me when you said ice cream its ice cream no preferences at all. I think ice cream can make us gain weight coz i gain lots of weight when i eat one.

When I have it in the house(usually only when it is on sale), I eat way too much in one day and, therefore, gain weight. I just bought some today and will buy a lot on Sat. because there is a special 6 hr. sale with a very low price.

Its summer time over here and I love ice cremes... And same is here too. I am quiet fond of vanilla and chocolate. I even prefer taking two to three ice cremes a day. In my place,sugar free ice cremes are also available in the stores and it is generally for the diabetes patients. They are a bit expensive than the normal ones. But they tastes a bit strange and I don't like it. Apart,you may take water with a bit lemon in it,early in the morning in empty stomach. It helps in loosing weight.

I love ice cream in any flavor. I know it is fattening but who cares about body weight now as I have been slim before and going back to that slimness is almost impossible when age is advancing. So I might as well not be too weight conscious and regret later when I can no longer eat ice cream. Just think of those patients in hospital beds who can't even sit up to enjoy ice creams. When the appetite is still good, I eat whatever I crave and ice cream is one of my favorite cravings during this hot and dry season here. . Forget about weight.
