    The reason for the pb is for fat. When you lower your carbs you generally need to raise your fat intake. Natural peanutbutter has the good essential fats that everyone needs in their diets.

    Natural Peanut Butter...and the reg stuff for that matter are a source of "good fats" and include some protein. You need fat to burn fat, and PB is a fairly good tasting source...other places are flax oil, fish oil, udos oil, primrose..etc..on top of that you need some of the other fats as well, the ones you get from your protein sources.

    That's what I understand anyways....

    sooner, i find it next to the reg stuff in the grocery store...also, they have it in the cooler section too. Otherwise look in the sugar-free section of you store. If my tiny town's grocery has it, it's gotta be everywhere!

    Agreed with everything mnkc and Texan have said. But also when cutting, getting fat is good because your body won't go into a starvation mode and see that it isn't getting enough dietary fat and make up for this by making the release of bodyfat very hard, it won't want to get rid of something that it isn't getting. Your body is a very smart and adaptable thing, it needs to be fooled.

    Try different stores, I'm lucky in that a all natural health food store is just down the road from my house.

    The one with fiber, do you mean liqnans?? Take PB and Flax at different times that would be a lot of fat at one time.
