@PhysiqueRescue did you mean to say making nut butters at home is INexpensive. But i do enjoy it, so far i've made almond, pistachio, peanut, sunflower, walnut, and coconut butter.

@ZullaT Hmmm, i never had a problem with stirring any of my nut butters. I made them in my magic bullet. Maybe I just ate them too fast for the oil to separate out.

@Nick Goodall It's not a shame that nuts are high in fat. Nuts are high in unsaturated fat, which is different than the fats found in animals. These fats are shown to help ward off cancer and heart disease, but they taste pretty damn good too! Don't fear the fat. You need some in your diet to absorb vitamin a,e, d, and k.
@LucyFeltonBanta Don't get bnpb. Almost always when the fat from a product is removed, sugar and worthless fillers fill the void. You're better off with homemade peanut butter
@kristy2102 Then it will have no sugar and no trans fat, and will be full of protein, healthy fat, and vitamin E. I'd say that's a win win wouldn't you
I jog/run 3 mi four days a week. 15 yrs old, would I benefit from "carb loading"

I find it weird that when americans eat something they get fat and obese but the same food is a staple in another country and its inhabitants have lower rates of heart disease and obesity. Our proneness to fat storage has provoked the birth of many fad diets.

no, turkey is not a frickin carb, and neither is butter. carbs aren't necessarily bad for you, and going low carb usually means going extremely high protein which can be taxing on your bones and kidneys. Carbs are energy, don't shun

Frozen yogurt can be really high in sugar, which negate the benefits of not having fat(which isn't even bad for you anyways)

mosty a good list but some of the foods to be replaced aren't necessarily unhealthy. For example, spaghetti squash for pasta, yes, spaghetti squash
is lower in calories than regular pasta. But pasta, if it's whole wheat and not refined has fiber and B vitamins too, it's not all that bad. While spaghetti squash may work out if you're trying something new, we can't go around cutting out all of our carbs. We need some carbs in our diet. So spaghetti squash isn't necessarily healthier per se, just because it's lower in calories. Both (whole wheat) pasta and spaghetti squash have their benefits. Despite that, many of the other substitutions are wonderful, like heart healthy olive oil for butter, or applesauce for nutrient-devoid sugar.

thank you for telling us not
to cut out all fat. I hate that fat is unfairly maligned by so many people. IT’S NECESSARY FOR THE BODY. It infuriates me when people say “I shouldn’t eat peanut butter/fish/oil/avocado, it has so much fat!”, We need fat in our diets, don’t turn to low fat peanut butter which has copious amounts of sugar. These fats are healthy and good for our hearts.

@sstahlman Yes! Peanuts ground into a paste offer a nice dose of healthy fats (yes, such a thing does exist), some protein, and flavor. But when manufacturers pump loads of sugar, partially hydrogenated oil (trans fat), and a whole bunch of other stuff it loses its charm

Ah no they take out all the healthy fats and replace it with sugar and syrup. Guys! Fat is not bad for you (if it's unsaturated). I know the media has done an excellent job of convincing us that fat is a dietary demon but it's not. Most of the fat in peanut butter is unsaturated, which is healthier for your heart. We need fat in our diets (20-35% of our calories). We need it for hormone production and to absorb certain vitamins. It also helps add flavor to food so you don't fill up on refined sugars to satisfy a craving that would have been met with a little fat. Yes, fat is higher in calories, but why does high calorie mean unhealthy? Don't fear (unsaturated) fat, Don't fear peanut butter. Of course don't eat half the jar, but feel free to get the benefits of its healthy fats, protein, and vitamns by spreading 1-2 tablespoons on toast, sans guilt.
