    I love peanut butter. Bananas not so much.

    And here I just finished a PB sandwich… The honey sounds good, but I can’t have it. But I like crispy greens on the PB…shredded lettuce for example… I’ll have to try the banana. Can’t have fluffernutter either…

    Peanut butter is a good source of protien. PB and banana sandwiches are delis . . YUM

    Adults make their OWN decisions. AFTER doing some research (or at least, these days, websearch). The proper response to silliness like “PB is bad for you” is to sneak off and eat it somewhere else…

    Peanut butter might have loads of fat but it also has plenty of protein. I eat it all the time.

    We burn the fat, it’s the carbs that kill us…sugar, pastries, potatoes, pasta, Doritos, Cheetos, cereal…

    And for 40% of them, the antidepressants don’t work. So if you’re one of those 2% …. STOP THAT!

    FAT is not a dirty word. My wife buys low-fat everything, and still eats more than she should. Caloric intake is the key. It doesn’t matter what you eat if you eat sensible portions.

    Reminds me of an old Cathy comic strip where she’s prowling through a menu, discarding one item for one reason, another for another reason, until she gets to the punch line: “Remember when people used to choose what they ate because they liked the way it tasted?”

    Listen ladies. Our time on earth is limited, we are not getting out of it alive. Enjoy life. Eat peanut butter…unless you allergic to peanuts…an allergy which did not exist when I was a little girl.

    It is claimed that certain fats are actually good for oneself. The Ω3s in fatty fish like salmon or herring etc. are part of my daily breakfast.

    “Studies say that it is essential to have _______ in your diet every day for good health.” A week later: “Studies say that (same food) is hazardous and is associated with early death.”

    Don’t let Big Food convince you otherwise. Sugars and wheat are the killers our bodies can’t process. Because they are cheap, they are pushed as “healthy”. There are not enough fats and proteins produced to keeps us feed economically.

    A person in good health can live a few weeks without food and a few days without water, but only a few minutes without oxygen. Yet even oxygen, absolutely and urgently essential as it is to life, is not without deleterious effects on health: we absolutely need oxygen, but we also (though of course less urgently) benefit from antioxidants. When busybodies insist that something your body craves is bad for you, the fact that the same thing is true of oxygen may suggest that, in some cases, their advice might be kept in due proportion.

    Peanut protein powder is peanut meal after the oil has been pressed out. It is a source of peanut flavor when roasted and worked into other foods.

    I’ve completed a nutrition class from the U of Minnesota, written and published various articles on nutrition and food for well over 15 years, and have lost 103 lbs when various doctors claimed that I’d ‘never’ lose weight without surgery or medication. Yep, I eat both peanut butter and sunflower seed butter. Both are good source of protein when eaten in moderation.

    If you get the peanut butter with hydrogenated fats and added sugars, then, yes, it’s bad. Eating two tablespoons of natural peanut butter (just peanuts and maybe salt) is not bad for you.

    Peanut butter is not full of fat. It is full of peanut oil.

    That is not true fat releases fat. Fast carbs create fat.
