Try some sugar free jello, i know its no replacement for peanut butter and I love the stuff but it is on the approved list. If it were me, and I keep a jar of nothing added peanut butter in the cupboard, I would have a tablespoon. For me thats usually enough to kick the craving and no harm done. Dont even consider it a cheat, just what helps get through a particularly tough craving day.

Hi, i have been lurking on the Stillman's thread for a day or two. I am presently on a short vacation with Hubby. I am going to start Stillman's on Wednesday, the 2nd.

Regarding peanut butter, have you tried PB2? It is a powdered peanut butter. You mix 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder with a tablespoon of water. Not perfect but a good substitute when you are craving. It is very low calorie and very low fat. Not sure where you live but i bought it at a local grocery, Kroger.

I totally understanding PB cravings!

Yes I was also going to recommend the PB2. It actually tastes pretty decent and it's very low-fat and low-cal. It tastes *really* good stirred into yogurt, too!

I know this is an older post, but I'm going to answer it anyway. I'm not a sweets eater but, naturally, one starts to crave carbs on Stillman. What I do now is ONLY a small amount of protein during the day (fish, beef, pork, chicken, no-carb/no-fat cheese (hardly any of that though), and eggs) but I reward myself at night with an Atkins 'Endulge' bar. In fact, it was only when I started eating the bars that I went into ketosis for some reason. I was craving coconut so bought those bars. I initially had fat-free cottage cheese, but the carb level was so high that I axed that in favor of the bars. Now I can behave myself all day because only will eat a bar if stayed on protein (minimum 50 grams a day - which is my requirement) and kept calories low (under 1,000 but I usually do under 500). Atkins does have peanut butter bars.

THIS IS A GREAT IDEA! I do something similar on certain days - not everyday but when I am craving carbs I will do really good all day and save a treat for night - like even a fruit sometimes... then I eat it after or for dinner... and I STILL LOSE! I love it and it really helps!! Glad to know someone else works the plan like this! :)

PB2 with a T. of unsweetened cocoa powder (found in baking aisle) plus 2 packs of stevia, a dash of natural vanilla and a tiny bit of salt to bring out the flavor... Oh MY goodness! This is almost like eating a Reese PB cup but without the garbage and helps me stay on plan... never had a problem and I eat this maybe once a day... Just wanted to share!!! Sometimes it really helps to know these things work!
