Our expert says:
At the moment, the entire Nutrition and Dietetic fraternity are rather baffled by the good Professor and his latest declarations. According to the SA Food Tables, peanuts and peanut butter respectively contain 10 g and 14g of carbohydrates per 100g. I would thus certainly not classify peanuts as high carb foods. Peanuts and peanut butter are high fat (nearly 50%), but because most of the fat is beneficial monounsaturated fat, it is recommended as it protects against heart disease. I think you should stick to what works for you and not worry too much about these protestations.
