I was just curious as to why you would want to cut the fats found in natural peanut butter, with all the benefits of them? I couldn’t find the article you were said to have written about the PB2, so I may be way out in left field. It just seems contradictory to go to a less fat peanut butter when natural peanut butter is used in the V-diet. Please help me out on this. Thanks in advance.
In some cases, it all comes down to calories. PB2 is natural peanut butter only with the fat removed (it’s powder; you rehydrate it with water), so that’s 85% fewer calories. That’s not just reduced fat. That’s significant. And sometimes you just want some peanut butter without it becoming a 600 calorie bomb. Plus, I’d rather pick and choose my fats, and things like walnuts have better fat profiles than peanuts (which are legumes after all, not really nuts.)
I still use natural peanut butter, and the V-Diet needs it for the fats, but my regular diet doesn’t always.
Hope that helps.
Awesome, Chris. Thanks for the quick response and the link.
