  • Peanut Butter

    Need help kicking this food (if you can call it that). For some reason, I could eat this stuff by the jar, if I let myself. Does or did anyone on the forum ever deal with this?

    I believe part of my problem is that I am not getting enough calories during the day - trying to keep a deficit to shed the last 10 or so. So some nights I am very hungry looking for a filling snack and I will eat this stuff, sometimes mixed with real butter or coconut oil.

    Really looking to cut this our and reduce some of the Omega 6 load.

    I have the same problem; I can't stop to a certain degree, once I start.

        Can you (have you) make the switch to almond butter?

          Almonds Butter has ruined my love for peanut butter, it's naaaaaasty. I skip nut butters altogether, and save peanut butter for a cheat.

            I have to respectfully disagree! I use Maranatha and find it pretty tasty, especially with a bunch of apple slices.

              Don't buy it. Eat bigger dinners.

                I made almond butter at home once and it totally rocked. Try Justin's almond butter. It is totally addictive. I also really like macadamia nut butter. Artisana makes it, but it should be hard to grind up some macadamias with coconut oil.
                I probably shouldn't tell you about Peanut Butter & Co's stuff. White chocolate wonderful anyone? *sighs fondly*

                    Peanuts aren't primal though. They fall on the avoidable legumes list.

                      Is PB Low Carb?

                        Oh, Almond Butter is sooo tasty. It's better for you but just as addictive as peanut butter! I could totally eat the whole jar. Just mix it up really well because the oil separates.

                        In response to the above post, most nut butters have like 6-8g carbs per tablespoon.

                          I don't consider PB low carb. Meat, cheese, and veggies are low carb. Everything else... not so much.

                            If they don't serve White Chocolate Wonderful in heaven, I don't wanna be there. I can't buy it because I will not stop eating it. I will eat way too much and then I will try to skip a meal because I already ate my alloted calories. The "Bees Knees" is also to die for.

                              This is one of my favorites too. I like nut butters, but peanut butter is awesome. Not to be difficult (who, me?) but this one I'm not willing to budge on. I figure it this way: I eat so many things that are healthy, as primal as I can afford, and 100% better than I did before. So...if I have a few things that I enjoy now and again, that aren't perfectly primal but are still high in fat and protein and "healthier" choices, like peanut butter, I'm not giving them up, dammit. :huffs: Or am I just being bratty?

                              I figure over time, my desire to tweak and adjust my diet will eventually edge these items to a very occasional indulgence, but this lifestyle is a process for me. So one step at a time, I guess.
