    My friend and I were debating this for about an hour today.

    I made the statement:

    If you eat 1 lb (16 ounces) of icecream in one setting, the most weight you can gain from it is 1 lb.


    I thought that this fact was clear as day. He was bringing up metabolism and calorie count and lord knows what else.

    I am right dammit! lol

    your thoughts?

    I would think you're right.
    Unless you fall over immediately after you eat it, hit your head and slip into a coma for at least 24-48 hours... Then the inactivity, coupled with head trauma, on top of the 16oz of icecream might trigger a hybernation-style, survivalist systemic and metabolic slow-down. That could cause you to gain more than 1 pound...
    Any less than 24, or longer than 48 hours wouldn't probably work out that way...

    Did I mention I love the game "Balderdash"?
    so much for going to bed early tonight :(

    even if your metabolism stopped completely, you could not gain more than a pound.

    the ice cream wieghed only a pound in the beginning.

    even you ate a pound of pure calories, the most you could gain from it would be only a pound no matter what your metabolism was.

    Ok then what if you ate the icecream and blacked out from an icecream headache and landed on a syringe filled with icecream that peirced through your skin into ur stomach and injected precisely 1ml of icecream and therefore put u over the 1 pound gained mark jus for arguments sake

    seriously Vic u need to slap ur friend across the cheek with a spoon full of icecream
