The most famous comfort food for breakups and lonely weekends – the king of the summer – the ICE CREAM. But has it ever happened to you to eat the entire pint? We have all been there, right?
Once you start eating it is extremely difficult to stop. And, as the summer comes, it is good to know what will happen to your body if it happens to eat an entire pint of ice cream.
So, finding yourself at the bottom of the newly opened ice cream pint, you feel a bit guilty and concerned about all that calories that you have now consumed. However, as long as it is not a habitual thing, it is not as dangerous as you though. In fact, it can be a good thing too.
Here, we will list the positive and the negative effectsof eating an entire pint of ice cream. And, once again, do not worry, all of the negative things enlisted are only detrimental to your health if you eat an entire pint of ice cream on a daily basis. If that is the case, stop doing that immediately and go for a healthier refreshing alternative such as a frozen smoothie.
- Your Blood Sugar Stays Somewhat Normal
You probably thought that an entire pint of ice cream will make your blood sugar go viral, but that is not so. Melissa Joy Dobbins, RD and Founder of Sound Bites Inc. says that anytime we eat any type of food, our blood sugar is going up, but unless you are diabetic it will still stay in the normal range.
- Your Blood Pressure Also Stays Normal
Another surprise. According to Dobbins dairy (which is one of the main ingredients in ice cream) has calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which are three important minerals for keeping your blood pressure normal.
- You Will Feel Happier
There is some sort of satisfaction in eating sweets, but that feeling is not the only thing why you will feel happier. In fact, it has to do with carbohydrates which lead to increase in serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for lifting your mood.
- Your Muscles Will Get Stronger
The celebrity trainer and diet expert Jay Cardiello claim that ice cream is beneficial for us up to two hours after a workout. This can be your excuse to eat ice cream in the name of health and workout. This is so because the sugar form the frozen ice cream prevents protein breakdown with the influential insulin spike it causes.
- Your Bones Will Get Stronger
The ice cream is more of a diary product than a junk food (and we often consider it to be the latter). That means that it contains a decent amount of nutrients—calcium and phosphorus aresome of them. When calcium binds with phosphorus it helps you bones get stronger.
- It Can Boost Your Fertility
A study conducted by Human Reproduction found that women who ate high-fat dairy, like the ice cream is, increase the chances of becoming pregnant. That is not the case with women who eat just skim milk and yogurt. According to this study, women who ate ice cream more than two times a week reduced their risk of infertility by 38%.
- Obesity Risk Increases
- You Risk to Get Belly Fat
- You Will Bloat
- Heart Disease Risk Increases
- You Will Not Feel Energized
- You Might Get Addicted
So, next time when you feel ice cream cravings, go for it. If you do not exaggerate, you know that it can do you more good than harm.
