I luv Ice Cream. Don't You? I just found out that my cholesterol is a bit hi and I should avoid saturated fats and eat a bunch of garlic. Yick! I have had a hard time trying to avoid saturated fats. They are in like everything, at least, everything I like to eat. So, I ask you lotters of Mylot, are you having a hard time avoiding things U love to eat? Do You have a reason why you can't or "shouldn't" eat these things? Let's "Dish" on ice cream! What is your fave flavor? I personally like anything coffee flavored.

Well, if your avatar phot0 is the real you, then i can see you stay away from fatty foods. I on the other hand......need to go on the Clinton diet. Did you hear? Chelsea made him promise her to lose 15 pounds before he walks her down the aisle. Honestly, I think she's being too picky. If I got married, I wouldn't have a father to walk me down the aisle. I would have to pay someone.

I love ice cream but I'm not addicted to it. I find it easy to avoid things that I love (and should not have) by just not bringing it into the home. I love anything chocolate..so chocolate is my favourite flavour. And if I get vanilla...I always, always top it with chocolate sauce (though vanilla is the only other flavour that I can have).

I Love the home-made Pumpkin Chip ice cream from this restaurant in Winter Park called, "The Briar Patch." They only have it around the fall and Halloween. Sooo good.

I love ice cream so mUCH!!! especially now that is summer, oh its burning hot here! And eating ice cream is more enjoyable during this season! I love chocolate, rocky road, strawberry, mango, any flavor actually except ube... Yes I agree it is very hard to avoid foods that can cause high blood... And actually those foods that are high in cholesterol are more tastier and yummier . Like you I find it hard to avoid, but I succeeded when I was pregnant with my second child... I stayed away from those... It is hard but possible especially if you have self discipline and mind power.

I am not very addicted to ice-cream although I like to eat it in summer. I almost won't eat it in winter because I feel so cold to it. Sometimes I prefer to drink a cold drink than the ice-cream in summer because I will feel better after a drink. I love China

I would have to say YES i'm addicted to ice cream. I love just about all kinds. However my all time favorite is the good old fashioned chocolate chip. I really need to cut back on my sweets and its hard but i'm trying lol.

I love walnut ice cream but it is very hard to find. My next favorite is butter pecan! I have high cholesterol, too. One of my tricks is to freeze yogurt so that it is a lot like ice cream. I also buy ice cream that is the good stuff, with very little air in it, so that it is rich and tasty and satisfying and it takes very little to satisfy a craving.

walnut huh?SOunds good. Were the walnuts carmelized? Butter Pecan was my favorite as a child. I just bought some frozen yogurt on clearance at Target and it's by Kemps. Only, it really tastes like yogurt that's been frozen, not like Columbo or anything. It's a bit salty. Not sure if I like it. I tried the single serving "Trail Mix" flavor. It had nuts n granola and mini choc chips. Not really sure I like it. Wonder why it's on clearance:)

Hi, coffeegurl. I love Butter Almond and Butter Pecan ice cream. I also love Cherry Vanilla too. I sometimes have a problem with avoiding things that I love to eat. I will usually eat them sparingly. I will not over indulge myself at all. I will think of food being no good for me. That will stop me from eating it and in return I will eat nutritious foods then.

I really like ice cream too, especially in the summer when it is rally hot and I eat it to cool myself off. It does just that. I do buy ice cream throughout the year, but I don't eat it that much in the winter, as I am already cold and it just makes me colder. I am not sure if I am addicted to it or not, but I sure do like it, and I can live without it, but I don't want to. Take care, and happy mylotting.

Ice-creams - This is an image of Icecream
Hello coffeegurl me too often do have ice-creams whenever i feel to have it.Mostly i like ice-creams in winters, and in summer to cool off.Ice-creams aren't mine weak points, but yeah if have seen it would rather go for it than to remain empty stomach. Mine favorite flavours are butterscotch, strawberry, chocolate, etc.Most of the time i prefer to have an ice-creams in my desserts.And about avoiding food, its fact that we have to spent something to earn something.Anyways keep it up with your food thought, Happy mylotting.

Not that much, but in a way I'm a bit fond yupping up Ice Cream every once in a while. I like sundaes from McDonald's especially this summer season..I never forget to include them with my order when I crave for deliveries some cold and sleepless nights. My fave brand of ice cream would be Selecta because they are most easily available to buy than Dreyer's or Ben & Jerry's...They have lots of unique flavors of ice creams but I tend to go for those Lite varieties. Fats are also one of my big problems because I'm more prone to hypertensive attacks..But still, I would like to enjoy a bit of ice creams at the same time not compromising my health if I can..

I love ice cream too but I wouldn't say that I am addicted to it - at least not at this moment. There are times when it seems like I've been eating it a lot and other times when I could go for a long time without ice cream. My favorite flavors are vanilla fudge or chocolate chip. I need some kind of chocolate in my ice cream.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like ice cream.HOwever, if your cholesterol is high you really should watch how much you eat. I had two heart attacks last year and when I asked my cardiologist what to eat he said anything and everything in moderation. Be careful tho cuz your moderation and the drs moderation are two different things !
