No, I am not talking about the North Pole here when I say ‘arctic’, even though the product I am about to tell you of is cold itself! Today’s #WhyEatThis Wednesday post is all about Arctic Zero Icecream! If you have not heard of this ice cream deemed to allow you to eat a whole pint with just 150 calories worth, then you may be missing out!
While some say it’s an unhealthy way to think about eating a whole pint of ice cream, I say anything is good in moderation, and if you do like to eat a whole pint while still keeping on the healthy track then Arctic Zero just might be the answer to your problems! Although, I would not recommend eating a pint every single day since Arctic Zero is not considered a whole-natural food. It does contain 0 grams of fat, a few grams protein, and low in carbs but not what I would deem nutritious which is why I say anything in moderation!
Arctic Zero ice cream is good for those who are doing macro plans (ex: IIFYM), competition prepping (such as lean figure or bikini), to satisfy a sweet craving without over indulging in calories/fat, or for somebody who has one of those bad-need to eat a whole pint of ice cream- kinda days. By all means, don’t get me wrong! I personally LOVE Arctic Zero Ice cream, but don’t let eating a whole pint mess with your mind as in making you feel you can eat anything and everything that’s low in calories, fats, carbs, or proteins. Too much of a treat that’s even low in calories, sugars, and fats can still add up. It’s still all about portion control. Arctic Zero is just a way to have a sweet treat without the ‘guilt’ afterwards. Of course, it’s perfectly normal to have a regular portion of real ice cream, too. It all depends on your own taste buds and what your personal fitness goals are. But don’t knock Arctic Zero until you try it! I personally love the strawberry, coffee, and cookies & cream flavors. They even have seasonal flavors, too! I will be honest though, peanut butter was not my favorite at all. It taste really bland to me (almost like cardboard), but what may taste bland to me may taste amazing to somebody else, so to each his/her own! (*Check all the flavors out on their website HERE!)
Here are another few good qualities Arctic Zero Ice cream has:
- Gluten Free
- Fat Free
- Made with whey protein
- No artificial sweeteners or flavors
- Sweetened with organic cane sugar
- Non GMO
- Low in Sugars
- 150 calories (or less) per pint
