5) Does this reduced fat peanut butter make a good meal? Answer: No!

  • No, peanut butter does not make a good meal for a 160lb bodybuilder trying to add muscle and lose fat at the same time! They need 26g protein and this meal only has 21g. They should only have 310 calories in this meal has almost twice as many calories as we need. Not only will their muscles not have enough protein to rebuild but they will get fat!

However, peanut butter does make a good protein source if you have extremely low body fat and are very active in sports (more than 2hrs every day) or have a very high metabolism. For example, peanut butter is an excellent food for an olympic swimmer who trains for 8hrs a day. Peanut butter is also a great inexpensive source of protein for kids who play all day and have really high metabolisms. In these cases, peanut butter might make an excellent, inexpensive meal and keep you from reducing your body fat to unsafe levels.
