If you’re someone who very often finds that you’re craving ice cream as your diet progresses along, it’s going to be important that you take a look at a few methods that you can use to combat these cravings.
While you should have no problem giving in and having the ice cream on occasion as long as you keep your portion size under control, if you’re indulging in ice cream on a very regular basis with your diet plan, the chances that you see results are going to be quite slim.
Ice cream just contains far too many grams of fat, sugar, as well as calories to be effectively added to a fat loss diet plan.
So what can you do?
Is there a way to satisfy your craving for ice cream without completing derailing your diet? There most certainly is as long as you get a little creative.
Let’s have a quick peak at a few of the top ways that you can satisfy your craving for something frozen without abandoning your diet.
Frozen bananas are the first great option to consider. These are great since they freeze very nicely and if you don’t eat them on their own, they can work great as banana bread instead.
Simply remove the peel from the frozen banana, wrap it in saran wrap and then place it in the freezer. Once you’re ready, take it out and mush it up until it forms an ice cream like texture and then serve.
This is a great cool treat before your workout provided you pair it with a protein shake as it will contain plenty of carbs and potassium – two ingredients that you must have for good success.
