I Don't Need You Ice Cream

My name is Jamie Walker and I have an ice cream addiction.

I often joke about how I eat ice cream every day. Well it's more of a fact than a joke. I literally eat ice cream every. single. day. I'm not the size of Texas because I tell my body to count it as my "dairy serving" for the day, but it's catching up to me. I have a problem. Somewhere inside I feel that if I don't eat ice cream before bed, there is a possibility I won't make it through the night. I might die. Well it's time to kick this habit in the teeth.




Ok how about 30 days? Just in time for summer. Not because it will help me lose weight or something, but once the heat hits ice cream is a must. Hopefully I will learn that it is an occasional treat, and not a daily necessity.

Ice Cream Fast Tips and Guidelines (I will be referring back to these in times of weakness).

-Throw all ice cream in freezer down garbage. Shed tear.
-When ice cream craving strikes, make an Orange Julius or fruit with greek yogurt.
-In case of extreme withdrawals, one trip to Yogurtland per week is aloud to keep from fainting. It's all natural frozen yogurt topped with fruit. You may consider this cheating, but I make up the rules.
-Ice Cream Fast ends April 22.

I did HCG once, which actually went surprisingly well. You can read about it here. Other than that, I'm not much of a dieter. Any tips? I need all the help I can get!

I have an ice cream problem too. I tried to give it up for New Years and that lasted all of a week. Hopefully you have better will power than I do!

You should totally make banana "ice cream!" It has the same texture as ice cream and is delicious and healthy. You can google a recipe, but it's basically just banana in a food processor with whatever toppings or add-ins you want! Good luck on your ice cream fast. YOU CAN DO IT! :)

Dear Jamie- You are in my prayers. May the next 30 days only make you stronger.

Much love, Kimberlee

I wish I had tips but I, myself, am guilty of loving ice cream oh so much. Caramel topping is my weakness. Oh, and cake batter ice cream with a brownie mix in from Coldstone Creamery. Wow I'm not helping you. uhhh I'm sorry! But good luck and we used to sell the HCG at a tanning salon I worked at, it worked so well for the people that used it! Just they were ALWAYS hungry haha :)

My name is Claire and I manage a local ice cream parlour/coffee shop. We make our own artisan ice cream from milk we get from a local dairy farm. our cabinet holds 18 flavours at any one time, and we have 64 flavours in our 'bank'. so tell me. How much do you hate me?! lol

I have a serious ice cream addiction as well. I am using pregnancy as an excuse to go ahead and not feel guilty about it. hehe :)Good luck to you on your fast.... :)

Let's just say I wholeheartedly disagree with your decision.

Ice cream and I will never part. Obviously, you need to take it much more serious than you do.

But because I'm trying to not be bitter, best of luck. You'll be back. They always come back.

My father in law is an ice cream addict! If it's in the house, he eats the whole carton in like a day. My husband had to stop eating ice cream because it started making him physically ill. He still lusts after it though. Good luck with your fast. Oh man, frozen yogurt is a good crave curber....I just made that word up, but I love frozen yogurt.

I think you're good with frozen yogurt, it totally doesn't count as ice cream!
