Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bombs (Low Carb + Easy Recipe)

Why is this on a mealprep sub?


[deleted]

Yeah, I mean okay it's a "snackprep", maybe, but I wouldn't call this mealprep.

Well. If they had actually posted a recipe it would be great for people trying to gain weight. It might sound crazy, but a lot of athletes actually have trouble getting enough calories when they're training. Burning 4000-6000 calories a day is a lot of food. Apparently mixing butter with your coffee is a thing too.

And that recipe is ... where?

That image is actually a link to another post on reddit, the recipe is on the comments over there.

Crossposts don't work well on all the different mobile apps, I can't access the original post for instance.


Cendeu

Just a picture for me.

I am not having this experience...

I'm sorry, I didn't explain correctly. The image itself it not a link, but the title of the image is. I'll just post the recipe here, should've done it in the first comment: https://i.imgur.com/Mw396hw.jpg

Chocolate protein powder works in place of the cocoa powder.

Replace the stevia with 2 teaspoons of sugar if you don't want to mess up your digestive system with that garbage.


icameforgold

While some artificial sweeteners can have some "negative" consequences. Stevia is not one of them. Your comment is extremely ignorant, misleading, and just flat-out wrong. Edit: before you show research papers on stevia causing digestive problems. Those are due to whatever binder a particular company is using. The main one being maltodextrine. Especially in cheaper brands. You can bypass those by using the liquid stevia or more preferably just grow it yourself and put a few stevia leafs in your drink if you want it to be sweeter.

Meh, debatable

Sugar is worse for you bro


Kosmological

Sorry for the downvotes. “Fat bombs” with added sugar are far from healthy.

That’s not what this comment said. In this instance they are right. Sugar is bad for you. This subreddit is about eating healthy. Adding sugar into a fat bomb is far from healthy.

I've been lurking this sub for a long time now and I never assumed it was strictly about eating healthy. I mean, that's a good reason to start meal prepping but I dont think that's exclusive. I've seen TONNES of unhealthy preps and alot of healthy stuff too. Keato preps, bulking preps. You name it! For me, I just enjoy cooking big meals that taste great and can easily be stored and frozen for quick easy meals.


Kosmological

I actually messed up. I mixed this sub up with r/eatcheapandhealthy. I’m subscribed to both. Woops…

Only if you're diabetic. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3198517/

The paper just says it's inconclusive lol.


gbdavidx

You can still be overweight and not diabetic. No one likes fat peopoe


TheS4ndm4n

Artificial sweeteners can be detrimental to weight loss. See above research.


shyguyJ

Stevia isn’t artificial…


gbdavidx

Yep it’s made from a plant…..

I haven't read your link (no time right now, will later) but every single study I've read on this topic is usually done on animals, or has questionable methods. Not that animal studies are useless, but the claims that sweeteners are as bad as sugars doesn't have very solid evidence. Are they perfectly harmless? Probably not. But they have less calories than sugar. We know that for a fact. I'll read your link when I get home.


TheS4ndm4n

Same here. But I'd still rather leave the sugar out than use any replacement. Just watch the total calories you eat.


Cendeu

Avoiding both is absolutely the best option. A proper healthy diet has no place for large amounts of sugar or its alternatives. It should be a seasoning, at most.


socratessecret

No they aren’t - there’s no evidence in humans of them increasing weight, increasing eating behaviours or anything that would prevent weight loss. To quote that above review “most of the studies have limitations such as effects shown only in animals not in human, small sample size, high doses, statistically non-significant or borderline significant”. The negative effects are shown in animals!


Cendeu

That's the thing. While some of these studies implies there may be some small adverse properties to sweeteners, they definitely arent big, aren't proven in humans, and are ill-defined. For all intents and purposes, sweeteners are better for you than sugar (if avoiding weight gain)


socratessecret

Implement agree with you! The majority of concerns arise from poor studies conducted in animals, in vivo and so on. In human trials we don’t see concerning negative effects (on the whole). So long as people moderate their intake and are sensible everything’s fine.


CaptTrit

It literally doesn't.

This is just stunning 💞
