I have been eating like 2/3 of a jar a day, and i wanted to know if it matters that most of the calories are from fat..

I dont know what kind you have but I hope its not what I have. Compared to my container of Jif PB that would be 373 g of fat just from the PB. That comes out to a caloric total of around 3360 calories JUST from the fat in the PB. That doesnt include saturated fats either. So I wouldnt be eating 2/3rds of a jar of pb every day.

eat more MEAT ...maybe a few servings of Pb per day but drink protein shakes also ...they are healthier then PB

As long as you cals are in line and you're getting lots of protein in your diet, eat all the natty PB you want.

So it doesnt matter that out of the calories in my peanut butter, 150 of the 200 calories per serving are fat calories?

No, it does not. What matters for either muscle gain or fat loss are the following:

1. The total number of calories you eat in the day. Eat more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. Eat fewer, you will lose weight.

2. The total amount of protein you get in the day. This is the biggest factor, other than genetics, in determining whether your weight gain (or loss) is comprised of mostly fat or mostly muscle.
