As long timers here know, I love peanuts. They are, of course and unfortunately, loaded with carbs and N-6 oils (although not as bad as some other nuts.) And I don't get into the nut vs. not a nut argument.
I've settled on buying SMALL bags of roasted in the shell peanuts maybe once a week. Peanut butter is just too easy to eat too much of all at once. It is also "pre-digested", in theory, everything will hit your bloodstream much harder and faster. Chewing food still leaves lots of chunks for the system to further break down.
The ultimate answer to your question, Jason, is individual. If you are trying to lose weight, peanuts are not a good thing to consume. If not, in moderation.
