NEWS: Ice Cream DOES NOT Make You Fat

Contrary to popular belief, ice cream does not make you fat. I always receive emails and comments inquiring about how I’m able to review so much ice cream without adding inches to my midsection. The answer is simple: moderation and planning. I make my way into the gym 6-7 times a week, work out hard, and allow enough room in my daily calorie allowance to enjoy ice cream nearly every single night of the week. Just because you’re watching your weight, doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in the foods you love.

Am I the most in-shape human being on the planet or have washboard abs? Absolutely not. But I just wanted to dispel the myth that ice cream and obesity are synonymous. So to all my fellow ice cream lovers, lift, walk or run hard and enjoy a pint.

  1. Good for you! I admit definitely not what I had pictured you look like knowing you test so much ice cream. Way to dispell that myth/stereotype! As a dietitian, I agree with everything in moderation, and exercising regularly. The problem is some people, okay, a lot of people these days aren't as disciplined as you nor as knowledgeable about how to balance calories and exercise. Unfortunatley, women typically have lower calorie needs than men, especially young men. Keep up the good work!...exercing and your blog.

    1. I've gotten quite a few messages comments about how I look nothing like they imagined.

      That's very true. In a perfect world, everyone could understand the benefits of daily exercise and moderation when it comes to their favorite foods. Thanks for the kind words!
