First of all, it's never a good idea to try to release stress by eating ice cream. Ice cream will only temporarily freeze your emotions. They will thaw out later.
Secondly, if you're going to overindulge in ice cream, don't do it with the sugar-free kind. I decided to because I was in this horrible sugar-craving mood. I can't eat regular ice cream (hello, diabetic here!), so I broke my "no artificial sweeteners" rule and got some chocolate almond fudge. It doesn't taste as fatty as regular ice cream either, so I really like it.
Thirdly, if you're going to overindulge in sugar-free chocolate almond fudge ice cream, with its smooth icy sweetness and perfectly toasted almonds, don't eat sugar-free apple pie beforehand. Just don't. Trust me.
Well, you know those labels that say "Excessive consumption may cause a laxative effect in sensitive people"? The warnings on both the ice cream and the pie?
What they don't say is that you may feel like a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon.

My new personal motto, a twist on Nike's:
"Just Don't Do It."
You'll regret it.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
