Halo top ice cream



Recommended Posts

First time buying this. Anyone else trying or tried it? It appears to be same amount of carbs and Protein as regular yogurt... So it seems harmless

I’ve had it, but it has sugar alchol, which I really don’t like. Just exercise good Portion Control because it won’t fill you up

Thanks,
Turns out it was too hard and cold I could even bother to try it. IDK what I was thinking its still winter. Back in the freezer until summer...

I tried a few flavors and didn’t like the texture or the after taste. But the Yasso frozen Greek yogurt is awesome. I have one occasionally and it’s the closest thing I’ve found to real ice cream plus it’s got Protein.< br>

I love Halo Top. It is the only ice cream I can eat. I have the chocolate and chocolate mocha chip. Those two are my favorite.

I do not care for the other flavors though.

I have to be careful and measure it out. It gets the sweet craving out of the way. The down side for me : It's easy to eat the pint and make it a meal. Ice cream is my weakness/kryptonite

The smartest thing to do post sleeve is to get sweet foods including sweet tasting foods out of your life. It isn’t that hard, when you are right after surgery. Then, in the coming months as you learn to eat again, your intestinal community of bacteria, your gut biome, will be populated by the kinds of bacteria who don’t crave sugary tasting stuff. Which means you won’t crave sweets. If you eat sweet things still, you’ll have a much harder time avoiding them, because your gut population affects your brain and your cravings to get the foods THEY want. They do need starchy carbs. But the right kind. The good kind, they are fine with carrots, potatoes, beets, Beans, seeds and nuts.

We would do well to use this special post surgery time to change WHAT we eat. Add Probiotics, fermented foods, and drop the sweet tasting things. Just a suggestion that I am trying. Cravings are too powerful. I’m happy to have lost them.

I changed what I ate well before surgery and so the only thing I had to give up was bread and seltzer Water.
I don't eat junk foods but I wanted an ice-cream alternative to keep around because realistically I'm going to eat it again at some point during the summer and I wanted to try it out at home instead of outside incase I reacted weirdly to it. This one interested me because it has a higher Protein amount and chicory in it (which has a fibrous laxative effect on me )
I don't eat refined sugar gave those up a year ago but I still eat raw honey, stevia, pure maple Syrup, cacao, dark chocolate etc and have no plans on giving them up because this is my diet for life and my NUT has helped me worked them into my plan

We get this every once in a while. A couple flavors I wasn't a fan of, but others I enjoyed. It's a nice alternative. I like ice cream but was never a fanatic about it where I needed it all the time (pre-surgery life at least). This is nice to have from time to time when I do feel like a treat.

Where can you buy Halo Top Ice Cream? Is it a health food item or can it be bought at General supermarket, Target or Wal-Mart? You've piqued my curiosity.

Most main supermarkets will have it. They only come in pint sized containers. Unless you can find it on sale it's a bit pricey, but it's worth it. Most pints are 320 calories and less for the entire thing. Upside is it actually has Protein in it as well and the carbs aren't horrible.

I adore Halo Top. The mint chip, salted caramel, and red velvet are my favorites. My kids even eat it and like it.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
