Whats the big deal and which is better for weight loss?

I love peanut butter! It is a huge down fall of mine..but I haven't ate it in a while.

Also has anyone tried Nutella..what was your reaction?

Thanks in advance!

Nutella is fantastic. Very high in sugar, and not as nutritionally sound as peanut butter. Peanut butter is my weakness... I often find myself with the jar in one hand and a spoon in the other!
A little peanut butter never hurt anyone :D
It's full of healthy monounsaturated fats!

Peanut butter anyday anytime.

I love all of the above. Nutella seems more like a dessert spread to me. Peanut butter is just addicting.
I really want to try hazelnut butter and almond butter. Yum!!

I love both, Nutella a little more. I pretty much alternate between the two, depending on what I feel like having. I'm not sure which is healthier, but my guess is peanut butter because Nutella has a lot of sugar.

How is almond butter?

I love Nutella because I LOVE chocolate, but peanut butter has more protein and less sugar.... I guess it's a good change up when you want something different. Same serving size and calories....

Nutella is amazing, but has way too much unnatural stuff in it. Try natural peanut butter - one in which the only ingredient is peanuts.

I've seen recipes where people make their own pb or nutella! Looks so easy, I'd love to try it sometime. Or even almond butter. I love nutella but I don't classify it as healthy. Its more of an indulgence for me.

Nutella = nectar of the gods !!!

If I'm remembering correctly, Nutella has a lot more sugar and carbs and still is around the same calories. I choose PB because I watch carbs and calories and Nutella just isn't worth it to me. Though it is kind of tasty.
Peanut Butter (Simply Jiff to be exact) is a staple in my household. I usually eat a spoonful of PB for breakfast and I'm usually pretty good to go until lunch time.

Exactly. Sadly, its not the most nutritionally sound decision.

I loooooooove Nutella! If it wasn't so high in calories I'd eat it every day! But, if you can control yourself and stop after a tbsp or so it's not too bad. Hard to do though, the stuff is like crack laugh

My daughter likes to put them both together......she says it tastes like reese's peanut butter cups.
November 2, 2011 8:48 PM
Crunchy Peanut Butter FTW!

Nutella, though delicious, is far from being better than anything for weightloss........

Peanut butter is better by far I think but what would be even better is getting a peanut butter made just of nuts.

Sanitarium are a good brand in Australia and I heard there's a new macro brand.

I havent tried them yet but almond, macadaimia and cashew butters are meant to be quite good :-)

I love peanut butter!! And more than that, I love Justins organic chocolate hazelnut butter!!! Like nutella but a bit less sweet... And I can usually convince myself that I'm being healthy because it is all natural. Yum...

How about you make fresh peanut butter.

peanuts unsalted
water
vanilla extract
cinammon

If you read the labels on both, the differences are very clear. Protein, sugar, fat . . .

Both taste good, all things in moderation, but PB is the best bang for your buck.
