Is eatting a 28 oz tub of reduced fat peanut butter once a week bad for you?
I eat it in between almost every meal? Thanks!

Ha ResistancE1.

We never discuss peanut butter here, nor topics of what effect quantity and frequency of peanut butter consumption can have on you, your nutrition, or your lifting.
Also, I want to assure you that you would have gained bonus points if you also brought up "natty" peanut butter. But you didn't do that, but this is a good start, since none of those things have ever been discussed here.

No need to use the search.

Natural peanut butter is good for you, reduced fat is processed garbage.

Then again, depending on your goals, you may just need calories, so who cares.

What ive learned is that the harmful hydrogenated oils in peanut butter are harmful it can clog arteries and slow your metobolism, so its harder to burn fat. So all natual peanut butter is a much better choice.

I eat over 2 gallons of peanut butter a month. So far I'm fine.

Natural or regular?

I get through 2 jars a week. But on the "peanut-butter" wiki-blurb I read this:

"The peanut plant is susceptible to the mold Aspergillus flavus which produces a carcinogenic substance called aflatoxin.[20] Since it is impossible to completely remove every instance of aflatoxins, contamination of peanuts and peanut butter is monitored in many countries to ensure safe levels of this carcinogen. The average American container of peanut butter contains a ratio of 13 parts per billion of aflatoxins, one thousand times more diluted than the recommended level."

WTF! I mean I'm not bothered, it just felt like blastphamy when I read that the wonderful peanut butter could give you cancer - but then most things apparently do these days.

Regular for him I believe. Check out his shake thread. Crazy stuff.
