He-e-e-e ‘s b-a-a-a-a-ck. Tucked away in my quiet cul-de-sac, I thought I was safe. But no, he’s out to find me. I hear him in the distance and he’s getting closer…and closer…THERE HE IS!!! SAVE ME …from Mister Softee!
Honestly, does he have to park right outside my door? I shut my blinds but it’s hard to ignore that jarring jingle luring me outside.
Ice Cream Summers!
I love summer but it’s also prime season for ice cream which is bad news for me. Why do I crave it so? Apparently it is a real addiction.
There was a fascinating experiment conducted by twin brothers, Alexander and Chris Van Tulleken (both physicians). One twin went on a no carb/no sugar diet and the other a no fat diet. They discovered that it’s not fat OR sugar but the combination of both together that piles on the pounds.
When sugar and fat are together in processed foods (such as milk chocolate, French fries and yes, ice cream) the scientific analysis showed that it had an effect on your brain similar to cocaine. Their conclusion? “If you want to lose weight it will be much easier if you avoid processed foods made with sugar and fat. These foods affect your brain in a completely different way from natural foods and it’s hard for anyone to resist eating too much. And any diet that eliminates fat or sugar will be unpalatable, hard to sustain and probably be bad for your health, too”.
