Peanut butter, of course, is a favorite of mine. It tastes great as fudge and/or pies. It doesn't hurt that it's considered one of the healthy weight loss snacks.

So how peanut butter helps in weight loss? Simply put, eating peanut butter makes you feel full so that you'll be eating less. It's healthy because it's a good source of protein and, as a living being, you need protein.
