I love ice cream, i have two in my fridge. And I usually have cravings at night..Im a weight-conscious woman, I monitor it everyday, I don't have discipline with keeping up with my diet though. I love ice cream, do you? Have you experienced gaining up weight with eating this? Thanks for replies! :)

Yes Ice Cream is very fattening. Just think of what it is. Cream and sugar. It is really bad for you. I am on the Atkins though and I just can't eat any carbs so as long as I get sugarfree Ice Cream then I can eat as much as I want.

Oi tintin stop following me about. It is really unnerving to be honest and I really don't like it. But yeah, wanna hear what I ate today since I fell off the diet wagon. Right I didn't eat til four o'clock and then I had tomato soup and roll and chips and cheese. 2 petite pans with corned beef, some more chips and tomato sauce and 3 cans diet coke.

Yeah but mine is Atkins so I eat burgers, cheese, eggs and loads of mayo. As long as it has no carbs then I am fine.

Ice cream is very fattening, if you like ice cream and are watching your weight then you can get lower fat variations of ice creams now, and eating at night is absolutely the worst time to eat anything like that, as you are not burning it off. Its definately only treat material unless you are doing plenty of exercise. But if you really like it just have a little bit of a day time so you have more chance to burn it off. I am lucky, I dont like ice cream very much, and so if I have any its usually only as a treat, probably once every summer. I too am very weight conscious and I monitor my weight an awful lot, probably too much!

wow, the word "very fattening". It's scary, ok, I'll try to cut it off gradually. I was watching Good Eats one time, when Alton featured making Avocado ice cream, would that be a little healthier? oh well, ice cream really is fattening no matter what it's made of. Thanks for replying.

Like I say a little every so often wont hurt. I was going to have an ice cream lolly once and just out of interest I looked to see what calorie and fat content it had, it had nearly 500 calories in it and around 25g of fat! But I have heard of an ice cream called skinny cow and if you can get that I think that has less fat in it. Its the cream and stuff they put in it thats fattening.

Real ice cream is loaded with calories and fat. But today there are many healthy alternatives, like "light" ice creams which usually have 1/2 the fat and calories, sherbets and sorbets which are usually low or no fat, and frozen yogurt which is the same.

i think most female like ice cream and i am one.of cause it can make us become fatter if we eat over,so i think ,yes,for you ,you'd better dont eat it 4 hours beforeyou go to sleep,and after eat ice cream,you can drink some tea,such as green tea,then you dont need to warry about your weight~~and taht is my way.

Ice cream is bad for you, but then so are lots of things. Just try to eat it in moderation. Try to have just one scoop once a week instead of having some every night.

Ice cream is fattening. It's high in calories and not the healthiest of foods. I rarely eat ice cream and when I do it's a fruit (soy or rice) ice cream. Usually I have fruit sorbet which generally has no fat...it's light and yummy and has the nutritional benefits of fruit but also satisfies a sweet tooth :)
