Im at the Dairy Queen :(
 
Be impressed, I sure am! The old man and kids are ordering ice cream and I'm just sitting here drooling all over myself. I can do it...I don't need it...I can do it!!

Yes, you CAN do it! Stay strong! Get a water or a diet soda if need be...but don't cave! Way to go!!

Along with the movie theater and coffee shop, those are pretty much the places where there is literally nothing to eat. My sympathies!

GOOD WORK!

Stay strong!

You can do it.

sillykimmie 02-22-2013 06:44 PM

:kicking: Way to be strong!!

If they have any cream in the back, you could make yourself a float with a diet soda.

svenskamae 02-22-2013 11:14 PM

I try to get coffee with cream or half and half in settings like that. I hope you managed to avoid temptation.

The old man even offered me a bite, NO THANKS!! I passed with flying colors, only to weigh in 2 pounds more this morning. What the crap!

If you do a search for the ingredients of their "ice cream" you'd barf. iIt would also get you all riled up over the claim of their product being ice cream.

Truth in advertising isn't so truthful any more (if it ever was).

From a past turtles blizzard addict.

:cry:

Soft serve's ingredients are corn syrup, whey, monoglycerides and diglycerides (emulsifiers), artificial flavors, guar gum, calcium sulfate, cellulose gum, polysorbates 65 and 80 (emulsifiers), carrageenan, magnesium hydroxide and air pumped into the mixture as it crystallizes.

Nutrients
A single, 1-cup (188 g) serving of Dairy Queen vanilla soft serve ice cream is estimated to contain 280 calories and approximately 9 g of fat, 30 mg of cholesterol, 140 mg of sodium, 44 g of total carbohydrates and 6 g of protein. It also provides 30 percent of the recommended daily allowance of calcium, 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A, and 8 percent of the recommended daily allowance of iron.

Benefits
Soft serve ice cream contains less milk fat than traditional ice cream---usually 3 to 6 percent milk fat in soft serve as compared to 10 to 18 percent milk fat in ice cream. It also contains a lot more air.

Wouldn't a bunless burger be okay? Or does their meat have a lot of junk in it?

It would be fine, without the ketchup too. The site says it's 100% pure beef. I believe they have a grilled chicken salad too

ETA I plugged the info without the bun and ketchup on their calculator, and it's only 1 carb

haha saw the thread title and had to pop in!

I second the bunless burger. Their burgers are good!

coffeelover 02-24-2013 12:39 PM

Good going!! :clap:

Thankfully my local DQ doesn't open until May 1st and they don't serve burgers and that kind of food either, only ice-cream and slushes. But I drive by a Coldstone daily that's always calling my name!

flatferenghi 02-24-2013 12:44 PM

when u get home...
 
make yourself a lc egg cream or lc ice cream soda. Reward yourself for your discipline, but do not trust to willpower all the time. Perhaps, next time u go to DQ, they can make u a special lc treat. Just tell them u are diabetic. They are in business to stay in business. Take it from this greedy troll. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Wow. I had no idea that there were DQs that didn't serve burgers and stuff.

Frankly, several years ago now, I got kinda hooked on those dang Chocolate Extreme blizzards.
