I think we beat ourselves up too much around here, eating ONE junky meal a week or whatever is not the end of the world.
If having some ice cream or a couple slices of pizza once in a while makes you happy then by all means go ahead and enjoy yourself.A diet that makes you miserable because you have to avoid something you enjoy,even in small amounts,isn't a way of eating that I want to stick to.I'd much rather eat on overall healthier diet while indulging in some tasty junk once in a while because I get the health benefits of eating paleo with the happiness that comes from a nice bowl of ice cream or some pipping hot Italian food.I do mma and functional strength training 5 days a week,a little treat now and then isn't gonna hold me back in any noticeable way.
I must be weird but i much prefer Haggen Dazs Vanilla Fro Yo to there ice cream. Only Questionable ingredient the fro yo has is corn syrup but i can live with that when eat a small amount on a carb up.
21g of sugar isn't all that terrible. That means you can eat an entire pint and still be well under 100g of carbs for the day. That's less carbohydrate than a PB&J sandwich and a Coke, which is a pretty typical lunch. I do a pint of B&J's once a month as a treat. As far as junk food goes, ice cream is one of the most benign. Especially if you make it yourself!
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
Mmmmm... Haagen Dazs Strawberry. You have to eat the entire pint in one sitting. That's the only way to go.
It's actually been about 2 months since I have though... but I'm happy for that. Nowadays I just nibble on it every now and then. Those single serving cups, I'm telling you... there's a reason not all flavors are included, only the essentials...
