It's not as good as the real stuff but really low in calories. It's good when adding it to other things like protein shakes.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone out there has a favorite healthy food that for some reason, you just cannot seem to get enough of it?
In my case, I don't care for processed foods, or anything sweet. It's just nut butter. It keeps me sated. I don't know why. I know they are healthy, since they are unprocessed, unsalted, just plain old ground-up nuts. As they say calorie in, calorie out. This impedes my goal of leaning down a bit. This morning, I had 2 tbs of nut butter w/o measuring. But I quickly stopped. I hope tomorrow I can do better. I really aim to improve every day.
I am new on Sparkpeople, but I have been a fitness and nutrition fanatic for a long time. I have a Type A personality so I strive for perfectionism always. Sometimes I can get too upset over it, though.
I am in no way overweight but I am not as lean as two years ago when I was able to at least enter an amateur bikini contest.
My bbf was diagnosed with bone cancer a year ago. She's only in her early 30's and just had a baby girl. What's worse, my mentor at work got diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer. They told me many regrets in life. So I have been hit hard with the reality and kind of down in the dumps, but not depression.
My bbf would like me to challenge myself and get back on the bikini lean physique again, among other things I have ambitions for, cuz life's too short! It's not just for vanity. I do feel good when my body feels good.
I eat organic whole foods, period. That said, the reason why I got flabbier is because for some reason, I crave for nut butter of any kind. I have tried eating carbs, proteins to feel sated. But only after eating nut butter will I feel sated. I really need to quit doing these.
So I am here to account for my diet! As far as exercise goes, I can hit hard with no problem.
