Keep in mind this is from an admitted fat guy. First off, peanut butter isn't actually butter at all it's basically peanuts ground up with some oils (not diary). Second, while nuts are indeed very high in fat, it is my understanding that it is actually a good fat and fat isn't necessarily a bad thing (in moderation as you suggest of course), but I am no dietitian. Last, the reason we are so fat is being glutenous (if pizza is good, double-decker pizza is better....if a big car is good, an SUV is better) and corn. We subsidize corn to make it dirt cheap and it ends up as the main ingredient of everything we eat (including our meat). Corn has very little nutritional value (and I love corn) and is basically a complex sugar. There is a very interesting documentary called Food Matters or Food Inc, can't remember which one that discusses the corn, but they are both pretty good. I also think the obsession with Milk and the Milk industry lobbying and advertising here is a major contributor. Milk is advertised as being very healthy here, when in fact, quite the opposite is actually true.
Bananas are a staple part of my diet and dont give me any ill effects at all,in fact in an emergency i could live off them.As for Peanut Butter,its not used a lot in the UK but just the sound of it sounds as though its only to be used sparingly.If i may be so bold as to say that the reason i think that the US has a higher than 'normal' obesity problem is a few things,portion sizes for example but it seems US snack or fast foods go hand in hand with high fat. Burgers and Pizzas eaten in moderation,once a week coupled with exercise is no problem but eaten daily is a real problem.Also chicken is a great food if eaten unskinned and boiled or baked but eaten with skin on and fried is again not good if eaten regularly.This problem is effecting Britain a lot now also due to fast food brands crossing the pond but a bit of knowledge and eating fast foods in moderation can help us all.Sorry for the sermon,no offence meant!

God, I wish, JMC, I use to be a nut butter junkie. No I experimented on myself, because the dog wouldn't let me on him , I kept on eating the rye crackers without a problem. But, any time I ever tried fresh ground almond butter, I was in a heap of trouble. Now I use to go around, friends would give me, and sample peanut butter from everywhere, I truely was a coniseur of it and coffee. The hardest part about this disease, is both are triggers and I love them both so much.Thanks for the input though.
Sick2much,are you sure it wasnt either the rye crackers or a combination of both that caused your problem?Rye is insoluble fibre i believe and something i wouldnt touch in a lifetime so maybe that was the cause too?
