Ice cream is fattening? Say it’s not so!
Okay, we all know that sorbet and low-fat frozen yogurt dish up fewer calories and fat than many ice creams. But hey, ice cream is rich in bone-building calcium, and everyone deserves a treat now and then!
Just be sure you pick the right flavour.
According to an exclusive Newsweek report on the Six Most Fattening Ice Cream Flavours, some Häagen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry flavours scoop up as much as 24 grams of fat in a single serving. Ouch.
Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter, Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby (hey, the name should have tipped you off), and Häagen-Dazs Butter Pecan are the top-three offenders, according to Newsweek.
Watch what else you put in your bowl, too. Our review of three weight-control food products—from breakfast cereal to muffins—found that they’re filling and nutritious, but no magic potion. You’ll find that exclusive on page 124 of the summer issue of Best Health, on newsstands now.
