    How healthy are these fat free chili beans?


    So I bought some Dennison's 99% fat free chili beans at the grocery store

    In one can which is about 2 cups it has

    420 cals (fat cals 40)
    4g fat

    1g sat fat

    Carbs - 58g

    Protein - 40g

    Sodium - 1020mg

    -----

    now everything looks good, except the sodium part..is that too much? I'm clean bulking right now btw.

    It depends on when you are eating them. If you've just worked out and are having them as a post workout meal, those carbs will be used well. The chili is high in sodium, but once again, if you've just worked out and have been sweating a ton your body can use some extra salt.

    You can take it 2-3 hours PreWO for a constant flow of carbs during your workout since beans digest very slowly. Beans are my ideal PWO food because of the high fiber content and ultra-low GI. In that label, have they already subtracted the fiber to get those carbs? Also is there any added sugar? Otherwise look pretty healthy.

    It would probably be better to have them in your post workout meal. Your muscles will need to replenish their glycogen supply after you have lifted, and those carbs will certainly do that. They'd be less likely to be turned into fat since your body will be needing that nutrients.
