Does peanut butter make you fat and how it affect your weight?

Very hight count of calories in peanut butter puts this product at the top of hight calorific nuts. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific nuts, peanut butter seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other nuts.

It is hard to find product with higher calories count in nuts. Similar energy amount have only such products as mixed nuts or dried coconut.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If peanut butter contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
