Coconut milk ice cream is definitely addictive. Good luck on your primal journey!
I LOVE coconut Ice cream and yes, its very addictive. Though now Ive been primal for about 4 months. I eat no grains, no dairy and very very little sugar (a sprinkle on something every now and then). High in protein and fats, minimal veggies and fruits and only water to drink. I've lost NO weight and keep my carb count to about 30-40g a day. I follow a weekly plan on sprints, walking, lifting heavy things. My fasting glucose was 109 and went from 87 to 109 in 7 months and my cholesterol has gone from 199 to 227 in 7 months (4 of those months primal up until present) No weight loss though I have lost an inch off my chest, waist, hips and thighs. My doc tells me to eat more healthy and exercise more. How can I eat more healthy when I already do?? AND my blood pressure is high. Just so frustrating but I'm continuing to eat as such and exercise. Though I'll prob cut back on the fats and bacon.
