I go with organic unsalted natural peanut butter. No added sugars, oils, or salt. The no salt is just a personal taste preference.
They're all going to be high in fat because, well, peanuts are high in fat. They also have carbs, but as long as they're not added carbs in the form of sugars, I'm cool with it.

Trader Joes has a great natty PB ...
either "creamy" salt or no salt added
"crunchy" salt or no salt added..
also natty almond butter is a good choice if you like almonds
personally I go with crunchy no salt added...it's delicious

I'd skip peanut butter for cutting, but for gaining I'd say go for the organic natural kind. Maranatha is one of the best brands I know of in terms of health.

I just opened a new jar that has flax seed added it kind of a weird texture has 8 carbs per 2tbsp but 4 fiber, it is a nice change of pace I ahve been eating PB while cutting and I would say the only downside is not overeating it cause it is so good i honestly think I could knock out a jar in a sitting no problem
02-28-2008, 09:46 PM
I'd bet money those ground flax seeds are rancid.

I user power butter, basically just PB with added egg whites, so higer in protein.
Doesn"t taste bad, you only have to get used to the somewhat dryer texture

Smart Balance Omega.. Best pb out there.
02-29-2008, 04:52 PM

I use Fitnutz Peanut butter-
It's a powdered peanut butter that is all natural..
It's awesome to mix some up with a litle bit of water and use it just like regular PB. (It rocks in Protein Shakes!!!!)
I love it cuz I can take it with me and use on the go-
The chunky is fantastic!

haha thats crazy that a powder PB can come in chunky status. I'm almost intrigued enough to buy it just to see what that's like.

It is prettry much 1 tbsp dry equals the same amount as 1 tbsp reg peanut butter, but I find that I actually get more out of the mix- maybe because I can mix it the way I want, thicker or more thin.
One bag has lasts me alot longer than a jar of ANPB does- which is good because I eat so much of it now!! lol

i just use JIF's natural pb, as its the .only one I can find locally, except for sometimes skippy but it has more carbs in it than I'd like. I mainly use it for late night snacks when i'm cutting(like now).
