    make sure your peanut butter is sugar free. There is only one variety in Uk supermarkets which is totally sugar free (whole earth) - so read labels. Meridien from Holland and Barrett is also a good option.

    But take care. peanuts are around 10-15 carbs per 100g. that is alot and easy to eat. I treat myself to a square of dark chocolate spread with peanut butter most nights. but I am at my target weight. if you are losing it might be wise to cut it out for now.

    Thanks, have seen the whole earth one, just thinking for those evenings when you need something, wouldn't have it every night. Well done on getting to target, did you low carb?

    Make your own then there's nothing else added at all. Buy a bag of peanuts, roast them lightly on a baking tray for about half an hour. Then rub off most of the skins. Blitz in a food processor for about 10 minutes. They will go like crumbs then look doughy and lumpy, persevere and keep them blitzing. Don't be tempted to add any oil as in a couple if minutes the natural oils will be released and you'll get lovely creamy peanut butter. Keeps really well in a Tupperware style container and is free from every nasty going. 100% peanut

    I originally did Lighter Life, then went low carb straight after. i never reintroduced carbs as I knew that would lead to weight gain for me. I have kept the weight off for nearly a year by staying carb free.

    henry - these are not really good low carb options Most of us avoid bread, popcorn and pancakes...

    I have recently started having almond butter which I really love though a bit more expensive than peanut, has a higher protein content though.

    I think Cashew Nut Butter is better for you than peanut butter, tastes good too!

    Just check the labels when looking to buy your peanut butter. Some are pretty low. I usually like to eat some off a spoon every once in a while as a treat
    Original start weight was 288lbs. Lost 13lbs on low carb.
