Hello, I'm wondering about 1/4 c. of peanut butter in my frappa. Is that too much for an S? Also, I'm guessing that beets would be E, but could I have them also with an S or would this be crossover territory.
Thanks for replying to my questions. It is helpful. I have lost my pregnancy weight with such little effort using your plan...
P.S. I find this site much more confusing than your previous one.
1/4 cup of PB is quite a lot of calories, and might be overdoing it a bit. You can probably get a good PB flavor with much less. You could try using just a Tbsp, and that will probably be enough. Or, you could use some protein plus peanut flour, which is great. You can get a good peanut butter flavor with much less calories. Or if you want to, mix part peanut butter and part peanut flour.
And as far as beets go, I think you could have a little bit with your S meals, but keep your portions small or you'll get into S Helper territory.
aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?

steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
