EAT THIS Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter

WHY If you're looking for the great taste of peanut butter without as much fat, you're missing the point by a mile. Sure, peanut butter is a good source of protein, but so is cottage cheese. Other than that, all peanut butter is good for is its fat — the healthy monounsaturated type (it's more likely to be burned and less likely to be stored as bodyfat).

Removing 25% of that fat makes peanut butter worthless, particularly because that fat is generally replaced with gut-busting carbs, more than twice the amount in regular peanut butter.
