I use to do the same thing and eat a whole pint in two days...But thank you Jesus that now I am more in tune with portion control than in my past.
And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13

As it become more important to me to lose weight I began to look and se how much one serving size was of various foods on the back of the food when I ate it. (On the nutrition label) I now have various types of food (one serving sizes memorized). I remember how shocked I was to realize that ONE SERVING of ice cream was ONLY 1/2 a cup. I thought of all the times there has been a huge pile of ice cream in my bowl and was like, WOW!
If you eat premium ice cream like Ben & Jerry that is what one pint is. To eat only one serving size of a pint you are basically eating it 4 times and only a 1/2 a cup each time. I sometimes only eat a 1/2 a cup of ice cream. I try to just avoid eating it, or just eat it on a treat day. Sometimes I just eat as much as I want to though.
How many servings of ice cream are in a single pint?
4 servings = 2 cuops
A pint of ice cream is not a single serving; it's FOUR servings. If you eat an entire pint, you have to multiply the number of calories, fat grams, etc. listed on the label by four. Stick to portions the size of half a tennis ball, and always scoop your ice cream into a small bowl instead of eating it directly from the container to prevent overeating.
