Peanut Butter Has Ruined My Life



Recommended Posts

Hello beautiful peeps. It’s 2:07am and I’ve been awake on and off for two hours in pain, nauseous, and stupid bloated because I ate Peanut Butter and it jacked up my whole life. I’m being dramatic because I feel like trash and I have a VERY important job interview today and really need the sleep. I just had to get it out into the ether to a group who would understand how something little like that can screw up your whole world temporarily. Thanks for listening!

How much did you eat? Have you had it before. What are your symptoms?

OH man, I'm sorry to hear that. I like having Peanut Butter at night with my Multivitamin, it keeps me from getting nauseous. So peanut butter is my friend. But because of the high calories I use PB2 - both the plain and cocoa added. If you ever feel like giving PB a second chance maybe you can try that.

Good luck with your interview! Hope it goes well for you.

Good luck on your interview. To this day I still have a love/hate relationship with nut butters and nuts. Some days win, some days lose.

Good luck on your job interview. Peanut Butter and I are getting alone just fine. Sometimes our tolerances change post-surgery, so apparently you'll have to cross it off your list.

it's hard to say what foods are going to be intolerable. I can handle Peanut Butter just fine - but I can't handle really fatty meals (like fish fries), really acidic things, a lot of sugar at one sitting (something like one cookie or a few bites of cake is fine - beyond that, no), sauerkraut. I forget what else. But we're all different...

In the future try some PB Protein Powder. When I get the itch for Peanut Butter I mix some up and use it as a dip for some cut fruit.

And it turned out to be one of the things Precious Pouch refuses to continance. But I have not given up hope, just this week she conceded to allow Greek Yogurt after 10 months of vehement refusal. So perhaps banana and Peanut Butter will return. Before my surgery Greek Yogurt, Cottage cheese, Peanut Butter, the Good Kind, I live near Columbus Ohio, the home of Krema P. Butter, so fresh it separates into oil and solids, learned as a Small Frustr8 to screw on the lid tightly, and store it up side down. And when it is time to eat some , turn it upward, stir it with your table knife, spread it on good homemade whole wheat 🍞 bread, nothing better unless you slice bananas on it! Yum Yum to infinity and beyond! And I was an EXCELLENT BREAD MAKER if I do say so, one sandwich of that filled me well enough I didn't munch between meals. Don't know if my bossy little turkey- egg of gastric Flesh will let those days EVER to RETURN? But as the old song goes, and YES I AM OLD " Ah Yes, I remember it well!"

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
