Salmon And Peanut Butter Not So Diet-Friendly
Q. Why do you recommend not consuming salmon and peanut butter with your diets?
A. Salmon, peanut butter, olive oil, avocados, and nuts are very high in fat. They do contain “healthy fats,” but they also prevent you from dropping weight with the dieting strategies we promote. Peanut butter is not an optimal source of protein as there are minimal amounts of protein in a nut. One tablespoon of peanut butter is over 100 calories, of which 74 calories come from fat, 12 calories of protein, and 14 calories of carbohydrates. The higher fat/low-carbohydrate diets that are promoted heavily on the Internet do work. However, we are confident that our dieting strategies are a more realistic solution that is less restrictive than a low-carb lifestyle.
