Nothing wrong with fat. Fat is great for cutting. As long as they fit in your caloric goals, go for it. Nuts are calorie dense though so this is normally hard.

It is calories in vs calories out. Fat is good for hormone product and all sorts of body functions. As long as you are eating less calories then you burn in a day, you will lose weight.

Only problem is your don't get very much food volume from high fat sources when reducing calories (ie they don't fill your stomach).

Just because you don't get a high food volume does not mean they don't fill your stomach. Fats are VERY filling, and have a great satiety factor. 2 Tbsp of peanut butter is not high volume, but very filling for most people.

It sounds like the problem is the fat - not the peanuts.

The macronutrient fat doesn't necessarily make you "fat" unless it is associated with trans fat.

Fat doesn't make you "fat" - Consuming more calories than your body needs makes you "fat".

its all about cals in vs. cals out. fat does not make you fat, but excess cals (unhealthy) will.

Excess calories period will make you gain weight, it doesn't matter if it's healthy foods or unhealthy foods. All cho, pro, and fat have the same amount of calories/gram. It doesn't matter if those food sources are clean or empty calories. If you eat too many french fries you'll gain weight, if you eat too many sweet potatoes you'll gain weight.

i was more mentioning that with unhealthy foods its much easier to exceed your caloric intake then with "healthier" foods, obviously no matter where the cals come from its always, always, always cals in vs. cals out.

Using your example Ritzol, its much easier to exceed a said caloric limit with french fries then it is with sweet potatoes or broccoli or something of that sort.

That would have to do with the caloric density of the french fries - they are cooked in fat.

I'm definitely the exception. :p

One of the culprits in the obesity epidemic is the abundance of calorie dense foods (ie high calories in a low volume of food). The stomach doesn't register calories but people respond to the sensation of fullness (increased stomach volume).

Who is satisfied by 2 TBSP of PB? If I were hungry and all I had was PB, I'd probably end up eating half the jar before I was satisfied, consuming several thousand calories in the process. Food volume counts. A 500 calorie meal of nuts will leave you feeling like you never ate.

Once again we have fat is bad? confusion thanks to the stupid Subway commercials. I tell people I eat nuts and peanuts and show them the fat content and the go wow, thats more then a burger, I'm not eatting peanut butter anymore. I usually refuse to eat Subway due to them trying to capitalize on peoples ignorance at the expense of their well being.
