I don't do it at all. It's my favorite thing in the world and I don't want to start the cravings. That being said, I did order this new product from called PB2, which is peanut butter powder that has 1/4 of the calories and fat of regular PB. I thinking of allowing myself a TB of that in my shake or pudding to count as my snack (only about 25 cals). It's supposed to be fantastic...

I could have written this post, farrell! I'm excited about mine arriving and to watch how I manage it. My hope is that I have made enough progress in working my issues that it isn't too huge a temptation...

It has 190 Calories for 2T,.

Trans Fat 0 G.

No Sodium or Cholerserol.

Hope this helps. I could take PB or leave it as part of my old eating habits, but have found it a very enjoyable way to add another flavor into my week..

Good luck!..

I like the natural kinds. I usually poor off most of the oil to save a little fat. I agree that is tempting-have gone over the Medifast limit on that once or twice. Also I'm looking for the SF peanut butter syrup a few of you have mentioned..

Hey, I tried to look at dbthreads blog and it said I'm not authorized because I'm not a member of mymedifast. Anyone know what's up w/that?..

Comment #7

The PB2 peanut butter looks very interesting. When you get it could you please post your feelings about the prooduct under a new topic so everyone interested will see it? Is it a powder that can be reconstituted with water so you can spread it or is it just a powder to add to other food items?..

Comment #8

I just have one question. Where does it say that we can have ANY KIND of peanut butter!???..

Comment #9

I got the same message, tried again and it let me in...

Babs8855, go to the Home tab at the top. Down towards the lower Right you will see Medifast Downloads. There is a section for Condiment Recommendations and Snack Options. It is there that is says 1 TLBS of Peanut Butter is a snack option. Hope this helps...

Heads up to those using the following brands of peanut butter. I get FDA releases at work and this one came today.

FDA News.



February 14, 2007.

FDA Warns Consumers Not to Eat Certain Jars of Peter Pan Peanut Butter and Great Value Peanut Butter.

Product May be Contaminated With Salmonella.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers not to eat certain jars of Peter Pan peanut butter or Great Value peanut butter due to risk of contamination with Salmonella Tennessee (a bacterium that causes foodborne illness). The affected jars of Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter have a product code located on the lid of the jar that begins with the number "2111." Both the Peter Pan and Great Value brands are manufactured in a single facility in Georgia by ConAgra. Great Value peanut butter made by other manufacturers is not affected..

If consumers have any of this Peter Pan or Great Value brand peanut butter in their home that has been purchased since May 2006, they should discard it..

Symptoms of foodborne illness caused by Salmonella include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps. In persons with poor underlying health or weakened immune systems, Salmonella can invade the bloodstream and cause life-threatening infections. Individuals who have recently eaten Peter Pan and Great Value brand peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 and have experienced any of these symptoms should contact their doctor or health care provider immediately. Any such illnesses should be reported to state or local health authorities..

FDA's warning is based on a just-completed epidemiological study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the states and local health agencies, which links 288 cases of foodborne illness in 39 states to consumption of varying types of Peter Pan peanut butter. This report was provided to FDA on February 13..

The outbreak appears to be ongoing and the first consumer may have become ill in August 2006. The cause of foodborne illnesses can be difficult to identify. As a result of extensive epidemiological testing and recent case control studies, CDC was recently able to identify Peter Pan peanut butter as the likely cause of illness. Great Value brand peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 is manufactured in the same plant as Peter Pan peanut butter and, thus, is believed to be at similar risk of contamination..

ConAgra is recalling all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 that already was distributed. The company also is destroying all affected products in their possession. The company will cease production until the exact cause of contamination can be identified and eliminated. ConAgra will advise consumers to destroy any Peter Pan and Great Value brand peanut butter beginning with product code 2111 in their possession. To assist in this endeavor, FDA has sent investigators to ConAgra's processing plant in Sylvester, Georgia where the products are made to review records, collect product samples and conduct tests for Salmonella Tennessee..

FDA will provide regular updates as more information becomes available..

Consumers who have questions should contact ConAgra at 866-344-6970...
