Try black beans instead. Less sugar, more protein and fiber, and higher in antioxidants. I love baked beans too but it's not like black beans are disgusting by any means. Throw some tabasco and onions and chicken in there, I could eat that almost every day.

same here minus the tabasco, not a sauce fan but sure ill go find a good brand of black beans and switch it up

They're not bad, but often the sauce they come in is loaded with additional sugar. I'd say keep it to a minimum and don't use it as a main source of protein by any stretch.

I'm sure they will help you gain weight...but a larger percentage will probably be fat. I wouldn't worry about it though. If anything just do 1/2 & 1/2. Put a can of baked beans in a bowl with a can of black beans and presto. You have the best of both worlds!!!!

They're medium glycemic. And the GL isn't terrible as long as you watch the portion size. But I would only eat them at specific times of the day.

Black beans are much better. Especially than the ones coated in the sugary syrup. I try to keep my carbs to sweet potatoes, wheat breads, and brown rice while on a lean bulk.

Baked beans are just Navy or Great Northern Beans with 10 lbs of bacon and brown sugar? I vote buy a bag of dried navy beans and put them in everything you eat. 1/2 cup ground turkey 1 cup of navy beans and a tablespoon of BBQ sauce wins the game. (For me anyhow)
