    People are so sugar-phobic it's insane. If you're on a total sugar detox or a Whole30 or something, sure. But if you're already living a stable Primal eating/exercising life, there is just no reason to be afraid of a scoop of ice cream (provided it doesn't have HFCS, additives, and stabilizers, but I've never had trouble finding "clean" ice cream).
    I am not afraid of a scoop.....the problem is, I can't stop there....I buy pints so I don't eat more than a pint!!! That's anywhere from 500-1200 calories, and a whole lot of sugar! It is simply another addiction I am trying to overcome.....

    Honey is not healthy. There is not enough benefits to make up for that level of sugar. Fruit is healthy, even bananas (23 g of sugar/100g) since it contains vitamins, minerals, soluable fibre and misc beneficial compounds.

    A healthy food is one that you should be able to consume in moderate to large quantities (several hundreds of grams plus), regularly without having any negative symptoms, or at least the positive outweighing the negative.

    You cannot eat 300g of ice cream or honey a day and it be healthy. You can eat 300g of fruit, meat, shellfish, vegetables, eggs, organ meat etc and be healthy.

    Gad, I am read in this thread just for thrills. I embarked on the PBlueprint the first week of last December and then about March 1st, I started to reward myself with Hagen Daz etc. - pint sized and consume one scoop every other night.....but my April it was one pint in one sitting once a week, then twice a week, then three times a week. Otherwise everything on the up and up or so I thought....spiked in with gluten free over treating episodes. Four weeks I called a halt to it....went through the withdrawal which lasted longer than I wanted....well, I am back on the straight and narrow. 196 lbs four weeks ago. 190 today.

    What an amusing rule.

    What you are saying is that, because you can't eat large volumes of honey or ice cream, it is unhealthy to eat in moderation, such as a small dessert? I personally believe that if your diet is already balanced and nutritious, you should be 100% fine (and may even benefit) from having things you enjoy included in it, provided they're not harmful to you. I'd rather have a scoop or two of coconut ice cream on bananas drizzled in a bit of honey after eating a full meal of meat/vegetables/starches/whatever than eat another plate of meat/vegetables/starches/whatever. I generally find most people are the same.

    Great post. It's nice to see that someone on these forums can handle food in a way that's not all-or-nothing.

    If you are really lazy, slice up 2 or 3 bananas, freeze them, and blend them together. You might need to add a splash of water to make it blend, but don't add much. You could also use a splash of heavy cream if you have some, but not much.

    I didn't read it as an all-or-nothing proposal. I read it as a relative comparison between foods as to which is healthier based on how much one can eat of each food.

    I also think each person has his/her own line to draw as far as how much of a particular food to eat. Mark encourages a line at 80/20.

    I think the point being made was that while one can eat a ton of something like broccoli with melted butter (and be very healthy), the same is not true of ice cream and honey. Therefore caution should be used.

    No one was saying that we should eliminate all desserts. But it is likely true that some people will have their line drawn in a more healthy position than others.
