Slim Down With Ice Cream Diet?


Magazine Includes Ice Cream With Low-Fat Diet

POSTED: 11:26 a.m. EDTAugust 2, 2002

With all the different diets touted these days for quick weight loss, Prevention magazine has a unique idea -- the ice cream diet.

The diet includes a cup of low-fat ice cream for women and 1.5 cups for men each day alongside a low-fat diet. An example of a low-fat diet would be a bagel, low-fat cream cheese, fruit salad and low-fat milk for breakfast.

You'll drop pounds because your diet will include a total of 1,500 calories a day for women and 2,000 for men, the magazine says.

To make the diet work, you'll have to choose reduced-calorie ice cream -- 125 calories or less per one-half cup serving. It should also have at least 100 milligrams of calcium per serving.

The American Dietetic Association agrees that ice cream can be a refreshing source of calcium during the summer months, but experts caution to watch portion sizes. Although an ice cream cone with one scoop of regular ice cream provides about 120 milligrams of calcium and 150 milligrams of potassium, it also includes 195 calories and about 10 grams of fat.

For extra health benefits, the ADA suggests slicing fresh fruit to eat with your ice cream, or choosing frozen yogurt instead.

And despite this tasty dieting idea, nutritionists say to melt away the pounds, it still takes portion control, diet, variety, and exercise.
