Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted II Denis Waitley


We all love to eat peanut butter, but is peanut butter really good for us?

Peanuts are a great source of omega-6, but it's not omega-6 we could do more of but instead omega-3 fatty acids. Omega -3 reduces inflammation whereas excessive omega-6 fatty acids can cause inflammation. Peanut butter has many health benefits but the quality of peanut butter is of upmost importance if added to your diet. Be sure to buy organic peanut butter where possible. The metabolic boosting and fat loss benefits of peanut butter make them the ideal and highest plant-based form of protein available. Just like anything moderation and quality is key.


Research shows that eating peanuts can  decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and many other chronic health conditions.

One study published in the journal of the American medical association found that consuming 1 ounce of nuts or peanut butter at least 5 days a week can lower the risk of developing diabetes by almost 30%.Peanut butter is rich in mono unsaturated fats.
Mono Unsaturated fats are considered to be good fats as it lowers down the low density lipoprotein (LDL) levels and increases the high density lipoprotein (good cholesterol) levels in the body reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.


Peanut butter is a calorie dense food , 100 grams of it contains 588 calories. Pure peanut butter contains only 20% carbohydrates, 25% of protein and 50% of fats. With such low carb content peanut butter is best suitable for ketogenic diet or you may say a fat dominant diet. Peanut butter with proper dieting aids to fat loss.

Most of the fat content in peanut butter is mono unsaturated fat or you may say good fats.A recent study found that insulin resistant adults who ate a diet high in mono unsaturated fats had less belly fat than people who ate more carbohydrates or saturated fat.

“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey.
