This week aSweatLife is partnered with N!CK’S, the first and only light ice cream that is actually, truly, creamy. N!CK’s is a Swedish brand that believes healthfulness shouldn’t compromise flavor. Spoon-soft and never icy, N!CK’S has no added sugar and only 220-360 calories per PINT. That means you get a compromise-free healthy and TASTY treat, without the calories. And it’s the perfect way to start summer.
Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care.
Today we talk to Niclas “Nick” Luthman, founder of N!CK’S and co-founder of LUB Foods. After being diagnosed as pre-diabetic, Nick changed his diet and lifestyle dramatically—but with a serious sweet tooth, he quickly looked for ways to get his fix and still keep his blood sugar in check. He shares why intermittent fasting and a ketogenic diet have worked for him, how the Swedish concept of “lagom” fits in with intermittent fasting, and how N!CK’S came to be. Plus, how Nick learned that he has the same taste for sugar as a seven-year-old.
