Does anyone know why I keep having extreme cravings for peanut butter? It's always there, weather I'm fasting, dieting, or eating a lot. Sometimes I eat the all-natural, sometimes it's the Jif, it doesn't matter, I love it and can't stop myself from eating it. I just want to know why!

 

P.S. I'm a vegetarian, so maybe peanut butter has protein?

My best guess would be that you need more protein and fat in your diet, I get the peanut butter cravings often as well, I swear on a day that I can't control myself I could eat a whole jar with a spoon, its so so bad!!! But anyhow that's my thought

Well I'm glad it's not only me! And I do the same thing with the spoon, and I'm always like "just one more spoonful..." haha. It's just so good! Anyway, I think I might try eating more protein-rich fruits like apples.

Just a suggestion- I found this new PB2- 1/4 the calories and fat!  I love Peanut butter too, but hate the calories- so, can still have my craving and not feel so bad!  Its powder that you just mix with water.  Tastes just like regular peanut butter!

I get these cravings once in a while too, and I've found a sure fire way to kill the craving AND prevent the binge that so often follows.
Take a spoonful of peanut butter and freeze it. Later, eat it like a popsicle. It takes forever to eat and will satisfy every craving you had. Works for me, hope it helps.

I love peanut butter too! When I am feeling super hungry I eat a spoon full of it ... plus it has protein. I will try freeing it like a pop...that is a great idea.
