    Peanut Butter Consumption

    Starting yesterday I attempted making my own protein bars. 25g Whey, 50g natty nut butter, 40ml heavy whipping cream. I have eaten like 3 of these things in the last 24 hrs. I am also not trying to have any major fat gains. I guess I splurged a tad bit on these things. Even tho I have only had these 3 with a couple protein shakes I have still kept my cals around my normal mark of 1500 -2000.. Is this bad for someone who kind of wants to lose a little weight, most definitely not gain any..

    It seems like a lot more effort than what is required. Unless you enjoy making these bars, I would recommend buying them instead.

    Buying them cost 1 - 3 $ per bar. I can make 20 for under 10$

    Weight loss, maintenance or gain is a matter of manipulating your caloric intake. That's the bottom line. Whatever modality that allows you to 'comfortably' maintain a deficit will work.

    Instead of blindly throwing darts at a dartboard with your diet, I'd recommend that you read the "Getting Started" link in my signature. It'll allow you to put together a diet that will give you some direction and provide some clarity to the dieting process. How does that sound?

    I'm definitely a fan of homemade protein bars for the reason ceazur mentioned.

    But back to the question. Is it good for me to eat that much nut butter based protein bars as mid meals when Im trying to trim some body fat even when I keep my calories low..

    Yea. If it fits within your 'caloric budget', then it's fine.

    Do they taste good? Some of those protein bars are downright disgusting. I use detour now, they are good as hell.
