Is eating a lot of peanut butter a good way to gain weight fast?
Asked by vavasor on Jul 09, 2008 in Nutrition

I am trying to gain as much weight at possible as fast as i can.  I am really tall and thin and have always had problems gaining weight.


Peanut butter is a good food for gaining weight because it is has lots of calories in a small serving.  Many of the calories are from fat, but the fat is plant-based and so it is healthy.  When trying to gain weight, you should strength-train to build muscle so you don’t end up with an excessive amount of body fat.  Read more about how to gain weight from the Nutrition Guide at
