I am reading "Eat to Live" and am curious about how the peanut butter and gaucamole I eat are affecting my weight and stomach size.
My wife makes the best gauc. I can eat the entire bowl in one serving. I stop myself before this happens but I eat much more than a serving in one sitting. PB is also another food that I could continue eating without realizing how much I have actually already consumed.
I am going to cut out PB and gauc for 2 weeks beginning Sunday to see if the scale changes and/or if my clothes fit better. I am also going to limit my total nut intake to 1/4 cup (one serving) a day. Right now I usually eat the 1/4 cup serving a day in addition to other prepared foods that have nuts (like the yummy lentil loaf and homemade Larabars I made recently). After the 2 weeks I will see if I wish to continue but I will probably reintroduce both gauc and PB, just at much lower volumes and maintain the daily nut serving.
