peanut butter

well me and my buddies lift every other day, and we all have different theories of what works and what doesnt. So one always eats peanut butter before lifting saying it gives him energy, is this true?

Yep, get you some Peter Pan and make sure the product code on top is 2111, it must be 2111 to be effective.

Peanut butter give you energy? That's a new one to me. Not many carbs in PB. I usually eat mine right before bed. And I only eat natty PB. Check out Naturally More, you can get it at Wal Mart. Great shit. http://www.peanutsnack.com/

It's all natural, no trans fats. The ingredients should simply say peanuts and salt.

I usually mix in a tablespoon or two in my protein shake. I usually drink mine 30-45 minutes before hitting the gym. It adds flavor and good fats to the shake.

ti dies have soem beneficial fats and other things , but I've never thought of peanut butter as giving a lot of energy.

Maybe they are talking about eating peanut butter before workout as compared to not eating anything at all before a workout. In that case I can see some noticible energy being available over nothing at all.

I'd think you would want a medium GI carb about 30 min before a workout, and maybe a pre-workour protein shake. But I could be wrong.

If I had to pick one, and only one food item to live on, it would probably be peanut butter, as it is quite nutritionally dense. I agree though, it's not something I'd use before a workout. My pre-workout meal consists of fat-free yogurt and an apple, it's the post-workout meal that gets all the calories.
