I’m recommending ENLIGHTENED ice cream and ice cream bars for Step 1 of the Metabolism Miracle, Revised Edition. If the net carb grams in the ice cream product you choose is 6 grams or less per serving; It is a 5 gram Carb Counter.
You can use the 1/2 cup ice cream or ice cream bar as a 5 gram Counter Carb for meals or bedtime.
I reserve my recommendations for products that go over and above in terms of Nutrition Facts and Ingredients for those who have Metabolism B.
Metabolism B …. there is a good chance you have this genetic predisposition to over-production of the fat gain hormone; insulin. Over 60 percent of adults have uncontrolled Metabolism B. They suffer from progressive weight gain, midline fat, increasing cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, insulin levels, glucose, liver enzymes, and decreasing Vitamin D levels. They feel fatigued, irritable, carb cravings, mild depression, increased anxiety, impaired focus and concentration, lack of motivation. They gain weight on their old “tried and true” diets. Their self-esteem is lowered and they feel like a failure because they can’t lose weight and regain health no matter what they do. They are walking a slippery slope and need fast and long term help.

ENLIGHTENED ICE CREAM and ICE CREAM BARS!
Ice cream. Yummmmm. It has always been a no no for those who are trying to lose weight/fat, or have conditions such as metabolic syndrome, pre diabetes, type 2 diabetes, PCOS, overweight/obesity, weight-related medical conditions.
Oh, there are several low calorie ice creams, low fat ice creams, “sugar free” ice creams and more. Those with Metabolism B quickly find that these products are contributing to their progressive weight gain and carb cravings. Low calorie, low fat ice cream, and low carb ice creams have significant amounts of carb. In some instances, regular ice cream is healthier to the person with Met B than these diet ice creams.
And along came a miracle! Enlightened ice cream seamlessly matches The Metabolism Miracle program. ½ cup is a 5 gram Counter Carb and can be used as a 5 gram choice at any meal or bedtime! Enlightened ice cream bars also match the Metabolism Miracle program as a 5 gram counter.
Why am I taking time to recommend ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream?
There are very few ice cream/ice cream products that contain 5 grams or less net carb grams. Why is 5 grams or less carb/serving so important? 5 grams net carb or less has a very slight impact on blood glucose and insulin release. It is a magic number. ENLIGHTENED ice cream and bars contain 3 to 6 grams net carb.
Some low carb food manufacturers make low carb claims…. even going so far as to say “5 grams net carb” on the front of their packaging. But; a look at the product’s Nutrition Facts easily shows that making the pronouncement of 5 grams of net carb a LIE.
The formula to determine net carb grams:
Total carbohydrate grams – dietary fiber – grams of erythritol = net carb grams.
Erythritol is the ONLY sugar alcohol that can be subtracted from total carb grams. So, if the sugar alcohol in a food product is any other…mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, polyols….it CANNOT be subtracted from total carb grams to determine net carb grams. Only erythritol can be subtracted!
For the following Enlightened ice cream bar:
1 bar has: Total carb grams: 14 grams
– Dietary fiber grams: 5 grams
– Erythritol grams: 6 grams
Net carb grams per bar: 3 grams net carb! (5 gram counter carb)
These are the net carb grams in ½ cup of this flavor Enlightened ice cream:
Total carbohydrate grams: 16 grams
Dietary fiber grams: 5 grams
Erythritol grams: 5 grams
Net carb grams: 6 grams net carb (5 grams counter carb)
And the taste is incredible. I promise that it tastes like real ice cream!
