    You can of course eat more pb than that. I know a guy who competes ( he won the welterweight class at the North Americans this year), and he eats 12 tablespoons a day. After speaking with him, he says he takes no digestive aids etc... Granted, if I were going to eat that much, I would make sure I stayed regular. Seems like it would be hard to not stay constipated on that much pb, but he claims that isn't the case. Here are some links to his pics. Not a huge guy, but built well none the less...

    3-4 tbsp a day. I should probably eat more because PB is cheap.

    I eat Skippy's natty PB, and I can't tell the difference, other than the label of course. Natty is definitely worth it.

    ya smuckers is surprisingly one of the best.

    you can pour off the oil on top and you are left with a tad less fatty, higher protein paste that actually tastes awesome itself.

    oh, 1 tablespoon with 3 of my 6 daily meals is how much i like to eat!

    I'm off PB, as painful as it can be at times. I find that chewin' some walnuts and flax seed together are not only better fat sources (omega 3, not 6), but also complement/complete each other protein-wise nicely. BUT DAMN DO I MISS PB!!!!!!!!!! SMUCKERS NATURAL CRUNCHY WITH SPLENDA ALL UP IN IT FTW FTW FTW FTW.

    correct!..but if you are on a p.h cycle what happens is your good cholesterol level drops while your bad cholesterol level spikes,so we need the e.f.a's(essential fatty acids) that are found in raw nuts or p.b!..to raise are good cholesterol levels.and also do to the liphiophilic(hope i spelled that right) nature of some of the p.h compounds that we use.p.b(or a good source of e.f.a's) is recommended.

    You can always switch it up with some Coconut Oil. I swear by the stuff, unrefined preferably. I truly think it gives me more energy, and who can argue with a rock hard pecker every morning

    PS Cashew butter is heavenly !

    im sorry!..10 grams.of fat!(e.f.a)...and as far as on cycle its recommended,but for off cycle it is a good source of protien! and i heard of people going through a tub of peanut butter a week!on or off cycle!it also helps with the absorption of the supps.that is being taken.

    are we really questioning if too much All-Natty PB is bad for you?
    but we'll put di-methylated prohormones in our body without much question? I dont wanna hear "as long as you have a good PCT" check the scales my friends lol

    PB won't back you up. Its got a few grams of fiber and plenty of oil and protein. It gets broken down when digested, into particles, so its nothing like it is going in when its coming out. I like to combine mine with double protein wheat bread, which uses extra gluten to get to 7g a slice, to get a more complete protein. Gluten is what gives pizza crust its chew.izza:

    I wish I could just sit down and eat an entire jar of peanut butter. I use Krema peanut butter. Cheaper than smuckers and the ingredients are: roasted peanuts.

    I am eating about 4 tbsp's a day.
