ice cream ice creammmmm

Since September, I've been really watching my sugar intake, and just eating a lot healthier in general, oh and working out too... the whole nine yards haha. I've lost 32 pounds :) I'm a sophomore in college, and today for our Winter Weekend celebration, we had a "One Ton Sundae" event, where you go and buy a small bucket for a dollar, then wait outside in line and then scoop as much ice cream as you can into your bucket! It's only a yearly event and I didn't want to miss out, so I watched my calorie intake all week and even worked out extra. I didn't eat the whole bucket of ice cream, but after I ate a good amount of it, I felt sick. Not really sick from being full, but like, sick sick... has this happened to anyone?? Is it just because I haven't been eating anything so high in sugar and fat for months now?

Honestly, this has turned me off from eating regular ice cream anymore (which I guess is a good thing! haha). Just wondering if anyone else has had this experience...

First and for most congradulations on your weight loss so far.

I don't know the if you getting sick had anything to do with the fact that you haven't had high sugars in a while, all I know is I had a very similiar instance. I have been eting everything sugar free since January 4th, last weekend I had some cake and a small bit of ice cream. Later on that evening I was super sick and it has turned me off all sweets for quite awhile. Which of course means one temptation I don't have to worry about for awhile. :D

I think it does have to do with your body being used to the "good foods" vs. the unhealthier foods.

My hubby and I went all-natural and gave up "junk food" for Lent one year. In the middle of Lent, we had an "off day" where we were too busy to pack our own lunch, so we went and got a Blimpie's Sub. I felt so bloated and sick after eating it. I guess it's because of the chemicals and things that our bodies had not eaten for a month!

Listen to your body and it will treat you well!

May have to do some research into this because the exact same thing happened to me. I started eating lots of veggies, whole grains, chicken or fish, fruits and non-fat dairy. I limit the intake of fat and try to make it a heart-healthy fat like olive oil.

I went home to my midwestern parents for Christmas and tried to just have small amounts of 'their' food which consists of red meat (not lean cuts either), potatoes, tons of butter, salt, gravy and either whole milk or half 'n half (is it any wonder I had a weight problem) and within 1 day I felt really sick. By day 3 my stomach hurt so bad I literally couldn't eat enything but chicken soup.

Yep - that really solidified things for me. I hadn't really accepted my new way of eating as normal or permanent until then, but man I couldn't wait to get back 'home' (and suddenly home was my apartment) and eat my own cooking!
