I'm doing my best to cut out junk food but no matter how many chocolate protein shakes I have I still get the urge for some kind of snack food. Are a couple of handfuls of dry roasted peanuts ok to eat as a snack if my goal is to gain muscle? The brand I eat is KP.

good snack? try great snack. Peanuts are really good for you. They are high in fat but it is the good fat that helps lower the bad cholestorol.Former collegiate Athlete

Salted might not be the best, because of the salt. I would go for unsalted. For the thread starter, peanuts are great for snacking, aside from the calories. But if you are bulking, they are great. The fat is mostly good fat, which you need a little bit of, and they are great for protien.I used to be 135 pounds, give me a break.

when i need a snack type food, i get 1 spoon of natty Pb, 2 tsp of sugar free jam, stir em together on a plate then eat that if i am quite peckish i will use an apple or celery as a spoon for it - feels like a cheat, tastes like a cheat, but isnt a cheat - two thumbs up"There's levels of retardation most people don't even know about"
