View Full Version : Question about ice cream

I recently found a low fat (3.5 g total per 1/2 C serving), sugar-free ice cream. A serving has 80 cal. Is it safe for me to indulge in once in awhile, or should I just avoid it all together?

You can have the 1/2 cup serving and count it as a dairy as long as it's Lowfat or non fat and sugar free. I usually look for ice cream that's between 80- 120 cals. It's a occasional treat, I wouldn't eat it every day.

In my book that I have it says Ice cream is counted as a starch. Just curious.

The numbered plan books do say that low-fat low-sugar icecream is a starch.

Sorry guys, I was wrong. In the gold2 book they moved it to a dairy and when they switched to the numbered programs they must have moved it back to a starch. I was told that it was the same book as the gold2. I haven't had any ice cream since then, so I honestly didn't look.

In the restaurant guide for the numbered plans, it says that you can have 1/2 cup serving of either the nonfat and nondairy Sorbet or of the nonfat, no sugar added frozen yogurt at TCBY. The count is 1 starch.
