Peanut butter is fine; just make sure you are watching your serving size (measure out the PB and jelly/fluff/etc. when making the sandwich, don't just glob it on). Can you bring fruit or veggies with you to supplement the sandwich? Apple, banana, orange, carrots, peppers...

Try pb and sliced banana. it will sit for a while fine. and it is a whole fruit, therefor none of the (tons) of added sugar from jam. keeps me full for a long time. Sometimes i put cocoa nibs on there too for a chocolate kick!
A peanut butter sandwich has protein, fat and carbs, so it will keep you full. As long as it fits in your calorie range there won't be a problem. I lost about 15 pounds while having peanut butter on toast every single morning for breakfast. It fit into my calories, so I was fine!

As long as you stay in your calorie range, you're not going to "balloon" 10 pounds in a month. Food isn't fattening. Too MUCH food is fattening.

Look for the brand "Better 'n Peanut Butter"...It's peanut, not soy, and tastes pretty good!
Hi! I have a small problem. I am a student and a pilot, so in between classes I go to the airport and fly (not as a job, getting a commercial rating). I eat a pb sandwich just about everyday. Yes, I use either whole wheat bread or 445 cal bread, normal pb with no sugar/palm oil. ect. and I will mix it up between all fruit jam or marshmallow fluff (hey, I have a sweet tooth). About once a week I might have caramel almond spread. Anyway, does anyone see a problem? I dont want to balloon 10 pounds in a month. I have been doing this about three weeks, and I dont think I see any changes in how my cloths fit. The scale at the gym is broken, so I dont use it. If there are any suggestions (please, suggest away) my limitations are A) has to sit for a while B) I cant go out and buy food necessarily. Choppers are not free C) no meat. Not a veggitarian, but the meat is usually rotten here at school
