Ice cream to lose weight? How can you lose weight while eating ice cream?
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an ice cream to lose weight? As summer approaches, it seems natural to want to enjoy an ice cream cone or your favorite frozen treat. However, if you’re trying to lose weight, it’s hard. Most diets suggest that you cut out all junk food…and that includes ice cream. Which is a big bummer.
But the truth is, you can still eat dessert and lose weight, you just have to make smart choices about the desserts you choose to eat.
For example, you can look for frozen dessert brands that are low in calories, fat, or sugar. You may think this alters the flavor, but it’s actually not as bad as you might think. If you follow the Weight Watchers plan, they have a number of great tasting desserts for as little as 2 points. Virtually everyone can find room in their diet for a 2-point treat.
There is also the Skinny Cow brand. Skinny cow treats can be amazing. The most popular tend to be sandwiches, which are low in calories and fat, but have great flavor. They also have truffle bars: frozen cream on a stick with chocolate drizzled on top. Personally, I don’t like that kind of dessert, but I heard they are pretty good. The newest offering is individual cups of cream in flavors like dulce de leche and chocolate brownie. I like the individual servings of ice cream because it is instant portion control. In fact, all of Skinny Cow’s products come in single-serving packages, which means you don’t have to worry about measuring things out or accidentally overeating.
New to the market is Protein Freeze, which is a type of protein powder that you mix and freeze; It tastes just like ice cream, but with the nutritional value of a protein powder. This is actually a dessert that can help you lose weight. The nutritional statistics are so good that you don’t even have to feel guilty.
Don’t listen to people who tell you that you can eat ice cream and lose weight. You can. You just need to incorporate your ice cream into a healthy diet.
