    Red face Ice Cream = Weight loss ?

    Shop Now
    Why is it that whenever I eat ice cream I'm a pound lighter the next day? And I wake up with a flat tummy, not bloated at all?

    Alternately, if I eat two many bananas or high sugar fruit or whatever, I get super bloated, and the uncomfortableness of that seems to last days.

    I eat about 1 - 2 cups of ice cream when I indulge, and it's always the good stuff, super fatty and no more than 3-5 ingredients.

    My normal diet when I'm not treating myself is about 60-80% fat, 20-30% protein, and 10-20% carbs.


    Does this have something to do with fiber? Or what my body is better at digesting? Anyone else experience similar strangeness?

    Dietary Fructose Malabsorption

    It's not uncommon at all.

    Fructose is a particular problem. In one study researchers fed fructose to 15 normal adults. They found that more than half of the 15 adults showed evidence of fructose malabsorption after just 25g of fructose, and greater than two-thirds showed malabsorption after 50g of fructose.

    Now let's stop beating around the bush and get to the meat of this post. It's all summed up in a beautiful title: Fructose Intake at Current Levels in the United States May Cause Gastrointestinal Distress in Normal Adults. Dr. Richard W. McCallum et al. fed doses of isolated fructose to 15 normal adults. Can I say it any better than the abstract?

    I've noticed a complete lack of bad side effects when I eat good quality ice cream, too. Although not so much bloating from fruit.

    Just curious what you consider a "good quality" ice cream. Do you make your own?

    Mmm, I'm hooked on Coconut Bliss ice cream. It's made with coconut milk. Only major downside is there is no protein - it's all carbs and fats!

    Hm, ice cream is the only non primal food that I like to occasionally have anymore. But I do like it to be good quality.

    Nestle has a "Real Dairy" product line that is all right.
