Of course lots of people have been interested in the Ice Cream Diet - with that kind of name! The creator mentioned, in Prevention magazine, that you'll experience the weight loss you need and be able to chow down on ice cream each day. We really wanted to know what was up with this diet, and we found out; so keep reading to hear our review of the Ice Cream Diet.
First, we have to give credit because the Ice Cream Diet actually tells you that you need to eat good quality fruits, vegetables, and get proper fiber. Even though it carries this name, Ice Cream Diet, you'll find that it tells you to follow a regimen of healthy food that is low in calories. The diet instructions, or suggestions, contain solid information for what you can safely eat to accomplish your objectives, and they'll help you out with what you can order when you're out eating. We have to tell you that the amount of ice cream you are allowed to eat will probably disappoint, but that's ok, and the whole food suggestions for eating will work to allow you to reduce weight. The ice cream is mainly there to make it tolerable and help you stick to it. The end result is your ability to experience weight loss while being able to enjoy some good stuff each day.
The use of Ice Cream is a way to make the diet a tolerable alternative. Ice Cream is a good source of calcium. Weight loss can be a challenge for someone who it lacking calcium in their diet. Fat is burned more efficiently when you consume calcium. No matter what kind of diet you are on, you always have the option of taking a calcium supplement, but, as the Ice Cream Diet book points out, there are certain benefits to eating calcium rich foods rather than supplements. The Ice Cream Diet recommends that you do regular exercise.
One thing we have to mention is that the name of the diet, Ice Cream Diet, can give people the wrong impression. While it allows you to eat a small portion of ice cream every day, it is still a low calorie diet. We do see how a person may think they can eat only ice cream while losing weight - not true.
Even worse, people who only hear about it and don't actually study the diet may conclude that ice cream isn't fattening. The thing is a lot of people will embark on something without doing the necessary homework. Just like with so many other diets, you will be required to limit daily calories and get regular exercise.
Overall, the Ice Cream Diet can help you to lose weight if you follow its recommendations. Also, should you decide to "cheat" on the amount of daily ice cream, then don't be surprised if you gain weight or don't lose it. The reward system designed into the Ice Cream Diet can be highly effective for those who like the idea of having the little treat/reward every day.
