Health Benefits of Peanut Butter
Peanut butter is not only for school lunches. This multipurpose spread is surprisingly good for your health. The high protein and healthy oils help with weight loss, gallstones and diabetes. It boosts energy and is good for our heart because it helps with better blood circulation.
Does Peanut Butter Help In Weight Loss Or Weight Gain?
I would say you can include it to your diet if you actually enjoy it. It tastes good and has a good amount of protein and fat.
However, you will only burn fat if you burn more calories than you consume. Please note that peanut butter is one of the most calorie filled foods you can eat. One tbsp has about 100 calories.
Therefore, if you can add it to your diet and still manage to burn more calories than you consume, then go for it. It’s always better to make your peanut butter at home devoid of preservatives and sugar.
