Certainly, adding ice cream to your diet EVERY summer evening will sabotage the efforts of even the most active people.  So, the first idea to embrace is that treats are SPECIAL and not for every day consumption – sure, you can have treats, but know that it does have an impact.  Next, be aware that when you do indulge, in order to maintain your current weight, you need to either burn off the extra calories, or cut them from somewhere else in your daily menu.  Being an Informed Eater, is the second greatest factor to help you make good decisions.  Will the small vanilla cone, at half the calories, satisfy you just the same as a hot fudge sundae?  People who are equipped with the facts, are better able to balance their eating habits and keep on track.
