I eat 1 serving of Smuckers Natural, which is 2 tbsp.
Really, it is about all the fat I eat all day, except for what is in my eggs at breakfast.

4tbs trader joes valenica crunchy PB with roasted flaxseed in 2 scoops pb chocolate flavored muscle milk with 1cup fat free plain yogurt and 8oz almond milk.

If it's an off day than just 2tbs

during prep: 2-3tbs

during bulk: 5-6tbs

Cheat days: i've been known to sit down with a full jar in front of the tv and have an empty one when i stand up

Dude, you should try the smart balance brand natural peanut butter that contains flaxseed oil. Perfect way to get in your EFA's.

have you guys actually weighed 32g (2 tbls) and seen how much it is? I'd bet money you are eating much more than you think.

i'm addicted to PB and trying to measure 1tbsp can be confusing, i ended up just getting one of those spoon measurements (ones that has the 1tbsp, or 1/2 tbsp, etc), scoop, level it out and there i have it 1tbsp.

Natural- 4 tablespoons a day! Thought I was having a "serving" with 2 tablespoons but those 2 actually weigh out to 4.

a tbsp. w. cottage cheese and chocolate syrup every night before bed

(when i used to log/count my macros i would write that down first and then balance the rest of my day around it)

I agree. I prefer the crunchy as well.


I only take in about 2 tablespoons per day. But that's plenty actually.

Alpha males eat crunchy PB. Beta males eat smooth which is crunchy PB that alphas have chewed up for them.
