When can I have peanut butter?!?!



Recommended Posts

Hello,

It's day 6 for me now and I just want to know when can I have Peanut Butter again? It's not on my list. Did I miss it? Did they forget it? Is this a noon recommended item?

Peanut butter has a lot of calories and fat and often sugars so it's something you need to be careful with and limit. Try PB2 though - you get the Peanut Butter taste and better macros.

Hmm. Can be high in sugar but natural Peanut Butter tends to be lower. It has Protein as well. I think the consideration is the delivery device.... can't eat crackers or celery or apples or bread, all stuff you eat Peanut Butter on.

If you're just looking for the flavor you could try adding PB2 or some peanut butter into a shake. I drank peanut butter shakes like they were going out of style.. it's my fave flavor!

As far as it being safe, I mean.... aside from the sugar content it's not a no, in my book. Could always call your surgeon's office and ask!

What brand are the peanut butter shake you drink? I will try them, I just want the flavor. Since I was a kid I'd just get a spoonful of peanut butter and eat it as is. Lol I'm weird

I like Matrix Peanut Butter Cookie flavor. I would buy it on line. You can add PB2 to any vanilla shake you like. Many people like Premier which you can get at costco, Sams Club or Walmart.

I preferred the Matrix brand or Nectars. For premade Muscle Milk or Rocket Fuel are okay. I get them already cold at the local convenience store.

What are you going to have Peanut Butter with?? You can't have bread and eating it all by it's self is clearly not worth it. At three months out I had some with apple slices but I stopped craving for it and dropped that habit too.

I don't eat Peanut Butter with anything. I like it by itself

I relied on the Quest Peanut Butter flavor Protein powder for my shakes immediately post-op. Totally satisfied the Peanut Butter craving for me. Highly recommend since you are so early post-op and it's a better choice than actual peanut butter at this stage. They sell individual packets at GNC by the counter.

I am 10 months out, at goal and normal BMI. Peanut Butter is MY favorite!!! I started eating peanut butter when I hit goal and haven't lost any weight since. Not an ounce! Stopped eating it for week and lost 2 lbs. in other words do not touch the stuff until your at goal and starting maintenance and then only in moderation. Might as well call it STALL butter!!!!

The Great Peanut Butter Panic of 2016.

Why not just call your practice's RD to ask about it? I can't imagine that it's 'forbidden' by your practice.

I eat peanut butter happily, calories and fat content be damned. It fits into my food plan because I limit the amount and include it in my food tracker as I do everything else that goes in my mouth.

As Lucy said, "It's so tasty, too!"

I'd just ask your team about it. And if it is okay at some point, I'd try to find one of the organic peanut butters that minimizes the sugar. For me, the fat is okay since healthy fat helps to drive a low-carb diet, but the sugar is what would be the problem.

I eat real natural Peanut Butter myself, with just peanuts nothing added. PB2 has added sugar. and I eat it with a spoon!

But I second the PB Protein shake suggestion! Syntax Matrix PB Cookie is the BOMB!!!!! Quest is a good second.

Almost three years out and at goal for two years and I still drink my Matrix PB Cookie! And make Protein mug cakes from it too... search for the recipe!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
