- Peanut Butter
Peanut butter, really? My personal trainer eats peanut butter with his big monster fingers right out of the tub and he’s ripped! Why no peanut butter?
It might be a little controversial to say, but peanut butter really isn’t your best friend when you’re on a diet. Sure, it’s got some protein, contains healthy fats and it’s convenient. All of those are excellent qualities in food.
The problem with peanut butter is the massive number of calories that it contains and how easy it is to overeat the stuff. Just one tablespoon of peanut butter contains around 100 calories. If you buy that sugary shit because it’s what you like or all you can get in your area, your brand probably contains closer to 150 calories per tablespoon.
When was the last time you used one tablespoon of peanut butter for a PB&J? Or ate one stick of celery with peanut butter?
It might be delicious, but peanut butter can easily to turn a healthy 250 calories snack into a 1,000 calorie bomb that will blow up your diet.
