Ice cream is dairy so it counts as low-carb right? Chocolate bacon is low carb as well?

Trying to lose about 15 pounds and I heard the fastest way to do that is low-carb. I can still have ice cream since its dairy if I understand ketosis correctly. And since chocolate bacon is meat, it's recommended on carb-restricted diets as well, yes?

Dairy is not considered Paleo specifically, but some still consume it if they feel it does not bother them. That aside, ice cream is loaded with sugar. Try freezing some ripe bananas and blend them for a treat. It's actually REALLY GOOD. Bacon is good and low carb. Make sure it is nitrate/nitrite free. Green & Blacks dark chocolate is good for a healthier chocolate. Check this info out: http://www.paleolithe.com/2012/03/12/top-5-paleo-approved-dark-chocolate

P.S. Not necessarily saying you should do this, just sharing the info.

Thank you for your question. No, ice-cream is not low carb. But sometimes we all need a break, right?

Are you trolling? Ice cream has a ton of sugar in it. As does most things with chocolate.

I wouldn't say ice cream is low carb- it has a crap ton of sugar in store bought versions. I've never had chocolate bacon, but I think if you make it yourself, you can control the sugar content- same goes for ice cream. homemade versions are the best for when you are counting carbs.

Dairy can have all sorts of carb levels depending on what form it comes in. Butter is low carb since it's pure fat. Unsweetened heavy cream might come in second. After that, greek yoghurt. I'm guessing ice cream would finish dead last - lactose, remember, is a form of sugar - ergo a carb. And ice cream contains sugar - another carb.
