    Beef Jerky:


    The Protein from Beef Jerky is ridiculously high. The fact that is a great snack (i can eat it in between classes @ school and get as much protein as chicken breast) makes it great for me to have. Is this a good food to consider using as my "school snack" or, because of high sodium levels, should i eat it moderation? ($ not issue (beef jerky is quite pricy).

    Just increase water intake when you eat it, it shouldn't be a big deal unless you have blood pressure problems.

    Beef Jerky is quality protein if you need it in a bind. Since it really is only dehydrated it retains a lot of quality nutrients lost by other forms of processing. However I do watch my intake just from a water retention stand point.

    i wouldn't worry about the sodium content much, after reading an article on sodium on t nation, that suggested that we don't get enough sodium in our diets, i added quite a bit and found that it really did help. he recommends for a 225 lb athlete 8-12 grams of sodium a day, so if thats the case, beef jerky is right up your alley, heres the article.

    What about canned chicken? Is that quality protein also? It's not the tastiest, but has 30 grams of protein per can. Does processing cause it to lose any of its efficacy?

    yeah, i've tried the ostrim sticks, but they are EXPENSIVE. i'd simply go with the jerky and drink a bit of water with it. MY favorite snack on the go is WALNUTS.

    i am a big advocate of fat. always have been testosterone makin' stuff that it is! i always have had more fat, even on a traditional diet plan, my ratio is 40/30/30.

    so go with some nuts and some jerky. good ****!

    if you belong to sams or bj's you can get a good deal on beef jerky. i think my mom paid $8 for a lb bag of pemmican (don't quote me on that but im pretty sure). and that can last a while but again if nutraplanet sold bulk id dig.

    Nutraplanet said the problem was the suppliers, they don't want to package it in bulk since they are making so much $$$ on the current packages.

    I have a bunch of deer in my back yard so if anyone wants some bulk deer jerky I will do he deed (however never having hunted in my life, and my affinity for not killing things may be a problem )

    I feel somewhat bad having my mom pick me up Beef jerky since it is so damn expensive (but my favorite brand is mia now so I haven't had it in some time.) Bulk jerky would be professional.

    that does make sense from their perspective (suppliers). it would be pretty convenient though to buy maybe 5lb for $30-35. there would be quite a market for that rather than those little pooch bags @ the dollar general that are really $3-4 and don't belong @ dollar general. but as far as buying goes best bargain is wholesale club.

    x2...

    bb'ers need to stock up on good fats and make sure they get at least the minimum saturated fat each day.

    personally ive found that cutting sugar is the #1 tool in weight control..its very easy to do once you get the hang of it

    ostrim strips are amazing...
    make your own jerky... much cheaper..
    you can do it in an oven too

    Only downside I have found is that some jerkys have a decent amount of sugar per serving. If I eat 3-4 servings at a time at say 7g sugar per serving that is way more sugar than I want from my meat. But otherwise love the stuff.

    I love beef jerky...but it does get expensive. I can down a bag in and still be hungry....i would have to eat 3 or 4 a day at $5.99. Which can get a little pricey.

    For the sodium just drink tons of water...no biggie.
