Peanut butter and Jelly Diet

Does this diet really work? And how does it work?

Re: Peanut butter and Jelly Diet

Greetings 6199! Welcome to the Diet and Nutrition health boards, I would not use the jelly part because most of those have too much sweets and can lower the immune system by decreasing phagocytosis. I would use raisins or other fruit instead.

Jelly often also has citric acid which is manufactured by a mold process instead of the old system of using citrus fruits which many people do not use. This could possibly be detrimental to those who have Candida or are allergic to molds or penicillin. Of course everyone is in charge of their own health care and makes their own health care decision. A nutritionist could be consulted if desired. Peace, sjb

Have never heard of this diet.

It's interesting how people want quick fixes to lose weight. Will you lose weight going on a diet and restricting yourself to eating only certain types of food? Yes.

Will you keep the weight that you have lost off for good? No.
More than likely you will end up gaining back what you have lost on a "diet" and more.

They only way you lose weight is by good-old fashioned hard work...healthy eating and exercise. If you have a slower metabolism, you will have to work a lot harder. Genes play a big role in that. Discipline helps. If you have an addictive nature, you will have an even harder time and have to be even more disciplined.

The more you eat, the more your stomach stretches, the hungrier you feel. The less you eat, your stomach slowly shrinks, the less hungry you feel. You have to train yourself to eat slower, chew more, savour your food more, eat smaller main meals with breakfast being the biggest meal of the day and have small energy boosting snacks throughout the day.
Almonds and raisins are good snack.

So my answer to your simple question turned into a lenghty answer, and yes, I gave more info. than you requested but hopefully this helps someone that reads this.

I would say with your meals, eat until you are about 80 % full...this is a good guideline.

Also, eat slowly. It is easier to sense when you are getting full when you eat more slowly as opposed to someone who wolfs down their food, so to speak.

Don't get caught up in calorie counting and weighing yourself unless your are morbidly obese. Even then, I don't think it's a good idea. You set yourself up for disappointment and failure when you get caught up in that, in my opinion.

Good luck.

Re: Peanut butter and Jelly Diet

Greetings Kari6199! In my opinion less per meal than before and no snacking ever. More vegetables on the plate may help one feel more full quicker but provide less calories. For a fruit meal one could use more fruits to fill up with. I would not mix fruits and vegetables in the same meal for these make war in the stomach. When fruits and vegetables are put together the stomach will not feel as pleasant and it is not as healthy because it makes the wrong chemical reactions together and or the nutrients compete for the same site of absorbtion. When hungry drink water and wait it out until the next proper meal time and leave no more than 3 meal times with the last meal light a peice of bread and a peice of fruit. Some people do better on two meals per day if they are not thin already.

Some bread with blended vegetable, bean spread, nut butter spread or fruit spread may be better than the butter as far as calories. Some bread, potatoes, grains or beans or nuts in each meal may prevent hunger until the next meal.

Peace sjb

Peanut butter and jelly? If that's really a diet, it must have been thought up by the peanut butter, jelly and bread industry (just like the special-K diet). What a great way for industries to increase sales ($$$$$). And it certainly does appeal to the taste buds.

The only problem is: It won't supply all the nutrients needed for good health. Assuming it works for weight-loss, you would be trading one problem for another.

Re: Peanut butter and Jelly Diet

Any restrictive diet will work short term because boredome sets in very fast. Thus if one eats all the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches he desires AND NOTHING ELSE he will soon get so sick of them that he will naturally curtail his caloric intake.
But the more likely outcome is that he will go off the nauseating diet.

That is the principal behind all the fad diets that restict you to just a few choices. (Remember Steak and Grapefruit Diet?)


Personally I have never heard of the PB&J diet, but clearly remember a few decades ago something called THE PEANUT BUTTER DIET.

Re: Peanut butter and Jelly Diet

Peanut butter and jelly diet? It sounds like a diet for gaining weight not for losing it.

Re: Peanut butter and Jelly Diet

Greetings, I also suppose it also depends on how many sandwiches are eaten as to whether or not it would work. Portion size in any diet would be important as to whether loss or gain happens. If the portion is small chances are there will not be any gain. Nuts in general are harder to digest and it would take longer for the stomach to empty so a person might not feel hungry so quickly. A peanut butter jelly diet might be deficient in some nutrients so in my opinion it aught not to be used long term. Other things such as salads, a small to moderate amount of cooked dry beans twice a week, whole grains, vegetables and fruits aught to be eaten also. Brisk walking for exercise may also be beneficial to the body.

Peace, sjb
