Can nut butters help you lose weight?


The answer is a resounding YES. Did your jaw drop? We love that 😊. But seriously, if you’re looking to lose a few inches and feel fitter, nut butters are a must-have part of your diet. You may have noticed that nutritionists, dieticians and gym instructors are recommending natural peanut butter as an everyday pre and post workout addition. And no, it’s not some industry hype or gimmick. There’s serious science behind why nut butters are good for weight loss, and here’s the main reasons broken down for you. 

Prevents snacking 

Snacking is definitely your worst enemy if you’re wanting to lose weight, and that’s where Happy Jars Peanut Butter steps in. Our jars are packed with over 80% nuts which make them a super source of protein and good (heart-healthy) fats. Those two things keep your appetite in check because they slow-release energy to your body and keep you feeling fuller for longer. So you end up snacking less and eating better. 

Good Fat, low Carbs and not fattening 

We’ve all heard of Keto. The basic premise of Keto is that fat is good for the body and works as a better fuel for energy than carbs. Happy Jars Natural Unsweetened Peanut Butter is the prime example of a perfect Keto nut butter. It has only peanuts, and nothing else. Just to clear the air about this, nut butters do NOT have actual dairy butter. They’re made with a base of nuts and therefore they don’t come with the ills of eating dairy for those of us that are lactose intolerant or vegan. 

Nutrition-dense calories, not empty ones 
Calories have been labelled as the Bad Guys, and have often been overlooked as important parts of your daily intake even though nutrient-dense calories are critical to weight loss. Happy Jars uses clean ingredients - the types that maintain the natural nutrition of the food rather than chemically altering it. The calories in our nut butters are packed with good fats, protein, fibre and healthy trace minerals. Even when you feel like eating something sweet, if you swap your chocolate spread for our Dark Chocolate Almond Butter, you’ll get less sugar and more nutrition into your body. 

Weight loss is a journey that’s unique to each of us and we’d always recommend you to consult your doctor or nutritionist before making any changes to you diet. And remember, everything in moderation, even the good stuff.
