    Natural peanut butter (no sugar) is technically allowed. If you are trying to lose weight, use very sparingly - it has a lot of calories.

    Andy's right: Most commercial/popular peanut butter is LOADED with sugars; they're pretty much a Snickers bar put through a blender.

    I'm a fan of Smart Balance. Just read the labels carefully. YMMV

    I can tell you that once you are used to eating the less sugary versions and you go back a few months later and taste Jiff/Skippy/etc., you'll find yourself saying, "Yech! I used to eat this train-wreck of sugar?"

    Oh, and friends don't let friends eat any peanut butter labelled "low fat." ;)

      Love the friends don't let friends eat peanut butter labelled "low fat". The same goes for cheese! If you really need it, it the real thing!

    How about Jif Natural it only has 3G of sugar? Is that allowed after ignite?

      (Note that I'm not speaking as an "Ignite Expert," but in terms of general health. So, take my comments as you will. ;) )

      Yeah, Jiff Natural seems a lot better. That glycemic index you hear about is a real thing, so backing off on the sugars/starches and letting those good fats help you feel fuller is always a good move.

      Pigging out on anything? Not a good move. :)
