Will this prevent me from losing weight (or will it even make me gain weight). If it will than I will obviously give it us- I just was wondering if 1 bad thing a day was still terribly bad?
Just a thought and suggestion....what about ending your day with a healthy smoothie...frozen fruit or fresh fruit (frozen fruit makes it nice and cold), skim milk, you can even add some veggies ( I use fresh organic baby spinach), and some ground flax. Give it a whir and voila..you have a very healthy subsitute to replace the craving for ice cream (which you can certainly have sometimes, but would avoid it daily).
