    Ice Cream before Bed

    OK, now before you rip me apart, let me explain. I am well aware of the problems with ice cream; high GI card, lots of sugar, lots of fat. It's just not a healthy food.

    However, whenever I ask the huge guys at my gym what the best way to gain weight is, they all respond, "ice cream before bed." This just doesn't sit well with me. Why does everyone I might in real life say ice cream before bed is good, while all the people online say its crap?

    So how many of u guys have actually eaten ice cream before bed in order to gain weight? Did it work?

    And if not, what is some other kind of food I could eat a large amount of before I go to bed in order to gain weight the right way? I am already eating yogurt and cottage cheese, but what about something like oats?

    Actually, Icream is very low GI. Even though it has a lot of added sugar, it also has alot of fat which slows down the absorbion. Also milkfat and dairy's/lactose are VERY slow digesting, so overall its a very low GI food. But I wouldn't recomend eating a lot, its high in sat. fat and you could just as easily eat cottage cheese +peanutbutter for a MUCH healthier alternative. Definately not the best option

    I'd go with natty peanut butter at night along with the cottage cheese. At least the fats in the peanut butter are goods fats unlike the ice cream. You'll gain more lean mass that way and not as much body fat. You could also try a weight gainer or make one yourself
    Thank you and Good night!

    Absolute ludicrous bull.

    Unless you want to start looking like Fern Britton any time soon, I would take no notice whatsoever.


    Healthy CLEAN diet, 5-6 meals a day, plenty of protein - balanced with sufficient carbs and fats, HARD training based around core movements, and finally REST... is what gains weight on a frame. Not damn ice cream. And especially before bedtime. You should not be taking in any carbs before bed, even on a bulk, and even clean sources, if you're looking to gain mass WITHOUT bodyfat.

    If anybody replied with a comment like that to me, i'd take them to the moon and back, twice over.

    I have actually been doing this for a week now and it works. I put on about 2 pounds this week.I added 2 scoops of vanilla ica cream, a scoop of casein protein powder and water, a few tablespoons of natty pb, some skim milk and 1/2 cups of cooked oats with splenda. I don't know how many calories that has but it seems to be working out well. But I won't be doing it for long maye 1 more weeks then i'll go with just casein.

    I don't think carbs before bed are necessarily bad. Depends on your situation, what you eat during the day, when you work out, etc...

    Carbs before bed is great, and even necessary if you are bulking. But we're talking about COMPLEX carbs here, not simple sugar that'll go straight to your waist size.

    who knows...maybe ice cream works for that guy.

    I remember hearing something about arnold using ice cream in his protein shake or something.

    Everybody is different. I even have a friend who uses Chef boy r d pasta for precontest prep. Works for him.
    Davinci flavor oppinions:
    Banana-awesome
    Pancake-awesome
    cookie dough-good (not sweet but has flavor)
    German Chocolate Cake- good (sweet, not strong)
    PB- good(sweet, not strong flavor)
    Gingerbread- good (taste like gingerale/no good on pancakes, okay in oatmeal)
    Coconut- good. (has flavor..a tiny sweetness)
    Macadamia Nut- good/poor
    Danish Pastry-good (if you like cookie dough you would like this)
    Blueberry-Awesome/good

    Smile Ice Cream

    I was just reading a book where in it they described why mass gainer powders have no use because most of the time the added ingrediant is sugar.... the other descibed how just add ice cream to whey and you got a mass shake right there!!

    2 year bump

    Ice cream before bed is fine as long as you don't eat tons of other crap with it. I eat it a lot along with cottage cheese . I guess it depends on how lean you want to get or genetics. With me it's all about balance now if I start to see myslef getting too fat I bak off of it for a few weeks. I eat pretty good all day hell I want so ice cream at night. My only problem with it is I like to eat 4 servings at once
