Pint of Ice Cream

Quote  |  Reply

Hi.  I am a little bit new to counting calories and I usually eat really healthy stuff, but today I ate a pint of ice cream.  The whole pint was only 360 calories, and I fit it into my daily intake, but is this okay?  I don't make a habit of it... but it was reallllyy good but now I feel extremely full and scared that I won't lose weight because of it.

Is this okay?

Totally fine, I fit a pint of light Phish Food into my daily calories every now and then and don't gain, and that's 840 cal.

But what I really want to know is...where on earth did you find a whole pint that was 360 calories??? That's 90 calories for a half cup, right?

*gasp* I must know the name of this low cal ice cream NAO! =P

Yeah 90 cal for half a cup... I live in Vermont and the whole label says:

Made in Vermont:  Leonardo's Italian Gelato "Just like in Italy" Stracciatella Flavor.  Homemade Italian Ice Cream: Sam's Creamy Chocolate Chip Gelato.  One Pint - All Natural.

Nutrition Facts: Serving Size 1/2 cup (80 g).  Servings per container: 4.  Amount per serving: Calories - 90, Cal from fat - 35.  Total fat - 4g, Saturated fat - 1.5 g, Trans Fat - 0g, Cholesterol - 10 mg, Sodium - 35 mg, Total Carbohydrate 12g, Sugars 8g, Protein 2g.  Vitamin A - 4%, Calcium - 8%

It was really tasty, but I don't know if they sell it outside of New England


Perhaps try the website: http://www.leonardosgelateria.com/

Gelato isn't really icecream - it doesn't have any 'cream' in it, so it's much lower in calories than icecream... no you're not going to gain weight from your little indulgence - you'd have to eat a dozen pints for that! I had a klondike bar (yes, one single bar) this afternoon that had almost that many calories in it...

Yes, gelato, I believe is made of water? Anyway, stracciatella is DELICIOUS! I loved me some of that in Italia!!!! Nom nom nom!

I always find a way to fit ice cream in my day. It hasn't stopped my weight loss. As long as it fits into your cals, you're fine. =)

I thought I saw that same brand, Leonardos, in Georgia the other day.... But I could just be making it up. Grocery stores aren't the place my brain functions best, lol.

Hm, where did you find a pint of ice cream that was only 360 calories? Typically one serving in a pint of full fat ice cream is 360 calories and in a pint there is four 1/2 cup servings... I would double check on that, because it would seem as if you may have actually eaten... 1440 calories!

err someone decided not to read the rests of the posts before replying lol.  I kid, I kid. :)

Seriously though, gelato is one of my favorite desserts cuz it's so good and so refreshing and so low-cal.  I love mango flavoured. :)

Are you kidding me! Awesome - I know what's for dinner!
