Thumbs up Omg I Found Lo-carb Icecream!!!!

I really pity my friends who were shopping with me because all I could say for around 20 mins was "Carboydrate Modified Icecream!"

Found it at a very large Woolworths. For those on the Gold Coast, it was the one at Robina - so it might also be at Harbour Town (haven't checked there yet).

It is Peter's Brand, with 3.9g Carbo's per 100ml. Comes in a 2l tub, white with green top. Cost a little under $4 I think... though I didn't really care, I was too busy repeating my mantra Carboydrate Modified Icecream!"

Tastes like soft serve! Vanilla was the only flavour I found.

Good luck guys hope you find it at a store near you!

Luv

R

G'day, Rey.

Did you enjoy it? I worry that I'd want to eat more than 100mL but if I see it I still might give it a try. Maybe...
Can you enter it into our Low Carb Yellow Pages please, mate? They're on the right hand side of the screen. I've only just discovered this nifty feature and I think we should all add stuff to it when we can.

No worries! I hope you like it.

I have also found it in Coles - usually down the very bottom of their ice cream section. It sells for around $5.50 from Coles.

Happy Lo-Carbing.

Posts appear twice becuase your proxy server goes out of sync. It will say something like - page unable to load or something - so you go back and repost only to see two posts.

Happens to everyone every now and then.

Default thanks

hey there

Thanks for the answer to my question about posting twice. I guess there is nothing I can do about it.

I found the ice-cream you talked about and can't wait to try some tonight. Also found the pork crackling and its got zero carbs and zero sugar. A nice treat.

Going really well as this is the beginning of my 2nd week. First week I lost 2.4kgs. Nice to see on the scales.

Cheers.
Karen.

Did you like the icecream???

I haven't bought any for a while as I need to defrost my freezer first.... Truth is I want to NOT defrost my freezer more than I want icecream.

I am sure as summer rolls round though that will change.

Yes I like the ice cream but have to be strong not to eat toooo much of it.
100 ml is about 1 scoop. I made sure I measured it out properly.
Since trying new things like the icecream, cream, pork crackle and strawberries I've gone out of ketosis. I was in moderate and now I'm back to trace. Does this matter.

Still it hasn't made me want to give it up I've just kept on going. Into my 2nd week now.

This group is great and been alot of help for me.

Thanks.
Karen.

Hi Lucy,

I live in Brisbane and I guess the containers would all be the same. I found mine in woollies supermarket. It is in a white container with a lime green lid. Peters - Nestle it has on the lid and it says carbohydrate modified vanilla 2 litres and is about $5.30. 3.9g carbs per 100ml which is just about one scoop.

Hope you can find it now. I had trouble finding it at first because for some reason I was looking for a green container. lol

Happy L.Carbing.

Cheers.
Karen.

Hi Lucy, not all supermarkets have it. The two Coles' I go to don't keep it, but I have seen it in Woolies. Haven't bought it yet - I'm too scared I'll eat it all at once! (Not joking!)

Hi Karen, haven't seen your journal yet.
To answer your earlier question, going from moderate to trace ketosis does not matter. Ketosis is like pregnancy - you either are or you're not! In fact, it's recommended that you show a trace rather than more, because otherwise it can mean you are not drinking enough water.
Not that I worry about the %$%^# ketostix - peeing on a stick is not something I enjoy! Losing the weight is the best indicator to me.

Cheers.
Roz

Talking I found it!

Well there I was in Bilo getting bacon - by the ton - & I had a quick look in the freezer and there it was!!
It is good! I had a taste of conventional vanilla ice cream the other day and it was waaaay too sweet! I had a small amount of the locarb one this evening with strawberries - made a nice change from Mock Danish

All I need to do now is either find a recipe for locarb chocolate sauce or buy some - if it exists of course!

Bye for now

Lucy
