Mochi ice cream or halo top ice cream



Recommended Posts

When was everyone able to eat ice cream? I like the Mochi ice cream when is green tea ice cream wrapped in rice paper but idk how well I’d do with that. But I heard halo top ice cream is good but I’m scared to try it. Also what are your guys thoughts on Protein Bars?

I made a decision to stay away from ice cream. 😥

I have noticed in my month since surgery, that the less sweet stuff I eat, when I do (like a sweet Protein drink) I find the sweetness overbearing. For me I think I am better trained to not want sweet, trying to break the sweetness addiction.

Protein bars - there are some great ones. Quest bars ar really good - I took another member’s advice, so cut one into small chunks and put in a plastic bag, and bring out a bit as a treat during the day...

See I’m craving sweet stuff. And it wasn’t the reason I got the surgery either. My genetics made my metabolism really slow. I eat pretty healthy and exercised 6 days a week. I just want ice cream.

I feel sick if I eat any sweets so I plan to not eat ice cream ever. I think it’s crazy to eat sweets. Eating them will make you crave them. I’m glad right now they still make me sick. I can’t eat any baked goods at all. I’m so happy about that. Last night I made a kick ass cornbread for the family and put one bite in my mouth and was sorry. There is a queasy dizzy unpleasant feeling from one bite or a bread type thing. Why the HELL would I want to push past that? I want to enjoy life and I don’t need dessert to do that. Only if I avoid sweets will I not be fat. Maybe that is different for others, but for me, I want to avoid sugary things or sweet tastes. I can be very satisfied by a juicy piece of meat maybe in garlic or covered with sautéed mushrooms or onions.... mmmmmm, and actually good for me.

I eat Halo Top ice cream at least once or twice a week. Usually less than a serving. I don't feel guilty at all eating Halo Top and it satisfies my sweet tooth. For anyone who is going to guilt me, sorry not sorry!

Halo Top is less "Ice Cream" and more "Frozen Protein Shakes" (But it's still "ice cream") So if you WERE going to cave, it would be a good option.

Something I've figured out that REALLY has been helping me along with my Pre-Op diet is this frozen Jello ice that I make using watermelon.

2 boxes of sugar free jello
2 cups liquefied watermelon

Boil 2 cups of Water, add in 2 boxes of jello, mix as instructed, then instead of adding more water, add the 2 cups of watermelon, divvy up and freeze. They make amazingly tasty Italian ice style ices with no added sugars.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
