Are you a peanut butter lover? Than the South Beach Diet is the weight loss plan for you! You can enjoy this delicious spread as a Healthy Fat on our program. Because it’s one of our favorite foods, we also feature the sweet and nutty flavor of peanut butter in a few of our bars and snacks.

Peanut Butter Pro Tip: While peanut butter is an approved grocery addition on the South Beach Diet, there are certain instances when it should be avoided. When sugar and hydrogenated oils (used to keep the ingredients from separating) are added to your peanut butter, this can make it unhealthy. Always look for varieties made from two ingredients: Peanuts and (a little) salt. If you need a hint of sweetness, add a natural sweetener like erythritol or stevia after spreading it on celery or carrot sticks or mixing it in your morning smoothie.
