14. Scream for less ice cream.

Lighten up on the scoops of ice cream. When it comes to frozen delights, whether it's no-fat or full-fat, controlling the serving size is the only way to control the calories. Designate a custard dish as your permanent ice cream bowl and keep to a small, 1/2 cup mound. Top with berries to give the impression of a larger portion. Or, prop your petite serving atop a 17-calorie, cake-style ice cream cone and lick to your waist's delight.
