  • If your body has a nutritional need for sugar you won't get a sugar crash. I don't get it after eating ice cream in the days after weights. I did get one today when I ate a two sweets today at work with no gym visit for a week. And that was much less sugar than in ice cream. If you need the sugar for growing muscles you just feel satisfied after eating it.

With the amount of lifting you do I am not surprised you crave ice cream. So go for it. The important thing is to be picky about the ingredients, an not end up eating soy, veg oil and HFCS. They all say what is inside on the label, so not difficult.
      Every day or two seems like a lot, but you definitely made me feel a lot better about eating ice cream Also greek yogurt with honey and berries satisfies my ice cream craving a little. And, what do you consider "a lot of lifting"? I do starting strength 3x a week. I spend about 45 minutes in the gym but with all the resting I think I might only actually be lifting 10 minutes.
      well then

      • I'm back from my party, it was crazy! We went to the movies and spend the rest of the night running half naked down the streets, don't ask me why
        I had too much pizza and too much ice cream but I don't feel bad about it and eventually how you feel is where it's all about right? I also got offered beer but I stayed away from that.

        It was fun
        well then

            I went on a search for good ice cream today, but the cleanest I could find contains:

            Cream, milk, sugar, water, macadamia nuts, glucose syrup, butter, coconut oil, salt, egg yolk,*
            sodium carbonate, natural vanilla flavor

            Everything seems fine but I don't know about the glucose syrup and sodium carbonate..
            well then

              Look through somewhere with a good range of Haagen Dazs ice cream. There are other similar brands but that is the one I know about. The plain vanilla and plain strawberry are clean. No glucose syrup (which I am sure is HFCS). I think bicarbonate of soda is probably harmless. It is used as a raising agent in cakes instead of yeast.

                • Rubbish. I found an entirely different type of organic ice cream meeting those requirements only the other day. Ginger, it was. You can't have looked very carefully. I simply do not believe Haagen Dazs is not sold in Holland, and nor do I believe you have carefully checked the health food shops (reform houses? That is what they are called here - Reformhaus).

                    That ice cream I named was haagen dazs. I first went to look in all the stores in town (2 grocery stores, 1 organic health store) then I cycled for half an hour to a town nearby and checked about 6 other stores. I also went to the haagen dazs website to check where they sell. I went to all of those food-chains but they only sell macadamia nut brittle and "cookies and cream".

                    • You are condemned to eat a small amount of HFCS in ice cream then, at least until you summon up the courage to ask a shop to start stocking a brand you like. A small amount of HFCS won't do you any harm - it is just not satiating like sugar, so you will eat more. In the quantities you are talking about it really doesn't matter. Sounds good enough.

                        The quantities I'm talking about are entire pints (430g) about once a month. To some that's a normal serving to me it's quite a lot. I think I'll eat it somewhere this week after lifting. Also I will continue looking for a better ice cream

                        • Once a month is nothing. That's like not eating it. I get through about 1-2 pots in the days after lifting, but my metabolism will probably be 1/4 of the speed of yours.

                            BUT yours doesn't have hfcs, anyway I love how relaxed it makes me feel when people like you say they eat stuff like that and are not unhealthy-obese etc (or are you?) do you hate small portions as well? I would never be able to enjoy 'a scoop of ice cream" or "a piece of cake" I either want a lot or just nothing.
                            well then

                              Btw, I googled around and most sources say glucose syrup isn't the same as hfcs, I also found that glucose syrup is mostly made from potato or white rice instead of corn. This could be false of course
