1/2 a cup is waaaaay to much peanut butter. Not only is 1-2 tbsp the right serving size, but because of the amount of fat it contains, it really should only be used as a treat food ... once or twice a week at the most.

WAY TOO MUCH! I only use 1tbs if I'm having PB. PB is very fatty (including some saturated fat) and has a LOT of calories.

Half a cup of peanut butter is way too much. The amount of fat in that is WAY too high for one day in just that food item. If you find you need to add calories, find other sources. Peanut butter should be limited to 2 tbsp per serving which is around 190 calories and 16g fat. If you're consuming half a cup, that's 760 calories and 64g fat in JUST peanut butter!

I agree about it being a lot of PB. Today I thought I was eating a lot since I had 1 tbs in my oatmeal and 1.5 tbs on my sandwich. If you're eating PB to suppliment a vegetarian diet look into beans and dairy. LOTS of protein there.

As for the calories burned and such. I use the Daily deficit report under My tools, Reports and try not to have a deficit of 1000+ too often. The calculation is:

(how much you comsume just living (BMR) + calories burned working out) minus calories ate.

A half cup is really a lot of peanut butter and while it's a great source of protein it's high in fat so it should be enjoyed in moderation. A serving size is 2 tbs which is about what it takes to cover a slice of bread.

So I have .5 cup everyday. I'm wondering if this is ok. I just pigged out for lunch... at first I was scared to eat to much, so I ate a little. Now I might be eating too much. Eating about 1800 cal now burn about 1100 at the gym?! Is this ok?! Is it even really about the calories?
