How Many Ice Cream Scoops have you lost?



Recommended Posts

Ice Cream is the bain of my existence. It's what contributed most to getting me here. With the band, I am learning to leave the evil ice-cream alone. Tonight I was reading the slow loser's club posts (I think Vines is great, too) and I noted that she represented her weight loss in "bags of concrete." I thought "what a charming idea!" So, I set out to find out how much weight I lost in terms of my own personal devil - the devil of ice cream!

Here are the facts I looked up, and the formula you can use to determine how much weight YOU lost in terms of Scoops of Ice cream!

Ice Cream analysis:

One scoop of premium ice cream has 250 to 300 calories<O:p</O:p

It takes a 3500 calorie deficit to lose a pound<O:p</O:p

Thus, each pound of weight loss equals 12.7272 scoops of ice cream assuming an average of 275 calories per scoop.

Formulary:

YOUR Weight loss, divided by 12.7272 = how many scoops of Ice cream you are down!

<O:p</O:p

Here's an example:

Based on a 46 pound loss, that is equal to 585.45 scoops of ice cream lost.

Worksheet:<O:p</O:p

<O:p</O:p

How much weight have you lost, in “Scoops of Ice Cream Equivalent Entries?” (SICEES)

What a great idea! If you are what you eat then I think my left thigh is composed almost entirely of Ben & Jerrys...

**To get the number of scoops, multiply the number of pounds lost by 12.7272. :)

I'm down 687.2688 scoops of ice cream!

Thanks Brad, but I currently weigh 2.5 bags of Portland Cement. :) If I lost that much weight I'd be a 6 month old baby. :D

I've currently lost 343 scoops of ice cream.

Whoops! OK, So I am mathematically challenged! You are right! To get your weight in SICEE's, You multiply your loss by 12.7, instead of dividing it. What I can't figure out, is what is the difference between bags of concrete and bags of Portland cement?

Even on those members in the slow losers club, once you measure weight loss in terms of lost ice cream, YOU ALL ARE POSTING SOME BIG NUMBERS!!!! We should feel Great about it!

(What a great day - the icky scale told me I was good this morning. Down another pound. er, 12.7 Ice cream scoops!)

First off, Ice cream is not evil. Ice cream = love. for me any way. It has Calcium, and it's an even better way get it than cheese. (oh my gosh, I can't believe I'm saying that!) It has fat that makes us feel better eating it. Also, we need fat to matabolize vitamines A, E, and K. Because it is simple carbs, our brains love it because that is what our brains like to use as food, carbs.

"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Celery doesn't have a similar song. Neither do Brussle Sprouts. Liver does even have a football cheer.
