No Im not talking about el natural peanut, Im talking about your JIFFY, your Skppy, and Of Course, your favorite man In tights-Peter Pan. They have roughly 6 grams of carbs per serving(just two spoonfulls is a serving right?). With the fat content and protein content, can this food be considered in line with Berardis P+F meal?
IS protein GREAT? Or is it NOT SO GREAT? Also, I have been making my last meal of the day peanut butter, cottage cheese and some fish pills. Good choice?
Dude, it has the word butter in it. According to regulations set forth by the USDA or whoever makes the food pyramid, butter = use sparingly. Instead, I'd suggest you eat 1 loaf of bread to get your extra calories!
In all seriousness, attempt to get the natural PB, they really don't taste any different and are much better for you (we really don't know the levels of hydrogenated oils). I know they run specials on certain Skippy Natural all the time at stores around me.
I'm beginning to think that P+F meals versus P+C meals are a bit outdated way of thinking (Massive Eating is old research)...
In the 7 rules its way simpler... It limits carbs to the 3 or 4 hours post exercise. Which, I suppose, is simplified into P+C meals post workout, with some fat ok, and otherwise, P+F meals... (ok, I just contradicted myself, but whatever).
As far as 6 grams of carbs in your non-carb meal, that depends on how big the meal is and when it is...
Combine the ideas from Lowery's articles (mostly Temporal Nutrition) and Berrardi's articles, and up to 10 grams of CHO seems to be alright in a moderately sized meal if its earlier in the day or about 4 hours after exercise. (IMHO)
I keep a second empty jar around and then divide half the oil and peanut butter between the two and mix them separately. This way you mix 100% of the oil and peanut butter and don't end up with the dry hard stuff at the bottom.
