It’s been almost two months since I started the Mediterranean Diet in which I gave up sugar, dairy and white flour. I admit that I feel great, I’ve lost at least 10 lbs, my cholesterol has dropped a significant amount, and I miss ice cream most of all.

Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae  It was easy to give up white flour, white rice, white pasta. Much of the change was very easy for me – it was a new and different mind-set – but from the get-go I never felt like I was “dieting”. There was never a date a weight or an event where this was all coming to an end. This was my new life. Any time that I felt tempted to go back to my old ways – I would remind myself that if I continued down that path – I would surely die (at least sooner than later). But, all that being said – the one food that I miss most of all – ICE CREAM. Wonderful, chocolate ice cream! From Bryers to Ben & Jerry’s – I love it all. I miss Dairy Queen Blizzards made with chocolate soft-serve, Snickers, Butterfingers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! I miss hot fudge sundae’s from Courtney’s Sundae Shoppe. I miss Breuster’s – Peanut Butter Cup Sundaes. I even miss the little Weight Watchers DIET sundaes and ice cream treats.

Now, I feel better than ever and I’m not going back there… and my doctor has even said that an occasional indulgence is fine – it just can’t be a way-of-life anymore. And it’s not.
