Q: I really want to start dieting, but I absolutely love ice cream. Do I really need to give up my ice cream to be successful on my diet?
A: Absolutely not. You can still lose weight and even live a healthy life all while enjoying your ice cream – in moderation of course. Try to limit yourself to once or twice a week or even try setting weight loss goals and then treating yourself to a bowl of ice cream once you reach them. And be cautious of what’s in the ice cream you eat. A small Dairy Queen Hot Fudge malt contains 700 calories compared to a couple scoops of Breyers All natural Chocolate Crackle which has 320 calories.
