I love me some peanut butter, I probably eat about 1/2 a cup or more a day, and not the natty kind either, straight up walmart brand butter...
I usually run a year round recomp style training and diet routine, about 300-500 calories over maintenance and a good bit of cardio...
Do you guys think that this much PB is hurting my training or is the protien and omegas worth the fat and carbs?

If it's one of your only sources of fat in your diet you're probably alright. I'm not really familiar with the profile of PB that's not natural so I dunno."I am legally blind and if I can Squat,deadlift and over all get myself to the gym then anyone can get their a$$ in gear and get strong!!" - malleus25

Everyone responds to things differently. I would think that it would depend too on how many carbs you were eating, if you were eating a high amount of fats and a high amount of carbs it would make you gain body fat pretty fast. I would definately switch over to natural PB though, that walmart peanut butter is probably packed full of hydrogenated oil and sugar.

good call on the stevia... the only problem with the natty PB is that I havent been able to find it in large enough containers, the way I eat it id go through 3 jars a week whereas with the bootleg stuff I can buy it by the 6lb'ers

skippy natty pb is the best. as smooth and creamy as the junk one, but healthy as the organic ones. anytime i see it for 2/$5, i grab like 8. that and a banana with some whey = orgasm. no homo.

Private Selection Organic is awesome. Right now I'm eating Krema. It has nothing but peanuts in it. Pretty bland but I dip apples in it. Mmmmm

I have myself 2 peanut butter sandwiches (wheat) a day, the organic chunky kind from Wal-Mart, once for breakfast and once in the afternoon

Am I the only one to eat reduced fat regular and sometimes reduced fat natural? It tastes just the same.

Natty for the win, the Regular has trans fat, i Eat primarily 5scoops a day of natty, and dont gain love handles, i eat 2 scoops of regular, and what do you know love handles just pile on, i guess every1 is different, but natty tastes so good IMO,
Plus hydrogenated oil, which is in un-natural pb is used to keep Twinkies fresh for life, why do you think your pb doesn't go bad?
Interesting, that we eat something with a shelf-life of over like 20+ years.

OMG, for my carb day on the AD, I did this:
A grilled bannana & PB sandwich....trust me. I got the idea from a place that does grilled PB's...they melt in your mouth and taste like dessert. SO, I pan sauteed the bannanas very quickly in a cinnamon/brown sugar syrup. Smeared some natty PB on some whole wheat, then drizzled a bit of the syrup over it. I buttered up the outside lightly, then threw it on the cuisinart grill for a minute or two. Then toss in the bannanas and enjoy. If your diet allows...DO IT@!
