The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Ideally the ingredients should read "Peanuts".

    No added sugar. There'll be some carbs from the peanuts.

    It says natural peanut butter, and the only ingredient(s) should be peanuts and maybe salt, but that's it.

    some natty pb's have palm oil so you dont have to stir it, thats acceptable though not ideal. make sure there are no hydrogenated oils, and if you want to be on the safe side make sure it says peanuts and/or salt as the only ingredients.

    Make sure that's natural peanut butter mixed with honey rather than natural honey mixed with regular peanut butter. The only natty pb I've seen is Kroger brand (disgusting) and Smuckers (YUM!!!!). Check the ingredients. Natty pb just has peanuts and maybe some salt in it. Once you start eating that, you'll see that regular peanut butter just doesn't taste as good IMO.

    You talking about the fingers? Those were both in retail restaurants or ice cream shops.

    Cranberry gelatin/jelly/anything like that is soooooooo disgusting. My folks always have some of that cranberry conserve at Thanksgiving. In my opinion, that is one of the most disgusting foods on the face of the Earth. But cranberries are great to keep you from having Urinary Tract Infections (URI). Personally I'd rather have the URI. lol
