The ideal “weight loss fridge’ is an article series dedicated to uncovering what SHOULD be in your fridge if you hope to lose weight in 2018. So much focus is placed on what you shouldn’t eat if you’re dieting, so let’s check out what you should.

Stock up on:  Peanut butter

Since the explosion of ‘fancy’ nut butters like macadamia, almond, cashew etc… onto our shelves in the last few years (and the increased profit margin they provide sellers) peanut butter has become a taboo food for ‘serious’ dieters.

You’ll hear people say that peanuts aren’t really a nut, and they contain more carbs (EVIL!!!) than normal nuts, so you should avoid them.

In truth, peanuts and peanut butter are a really great diet food, because they are rich in fats and protein. Sure, peanut butter has some carbs, but you only need to worry about that if you’re going really low-carb on your diet. If you’re doing something more BALANCED then you’re all good. Peanut butter is tasty, comforting, and a great cure for hiccups (try it if you don’t believe me. Just a spoonful makes the hiccups go away!).
