Almond butter, peanut butter, or any other nut butter can cause weight gain if you make it a regular bedtime snack. Although numerous studies show that peanut butter can help lose weight, there are also researches that show peanut butter can cause weight gain. When I suffered from eating disorder, I consumed nut butter each night and gained about 25 pounds, and it was not only a terrible habit, but it also was embarrassing. If you are feeling snacky late at night, don’t reach for any nut butter. I suggest you to drink a big glass of unsweetened almond milk. Almond milk contains calcium that will help take away your cravings, calm your nerves, and help you sleep better. You can sweeten your almond milk with stevia or cinnamon, and your healthy and tasty bedtime snack is ready! If you still want to eat some peanut butter before bed, feel free to do it, but make sure you consume it in moderation and don’t make it a regular bedtime snack.
