Do you guys think that hot dogs contain too much sodium?

I'm thinking about using them as a sort of snack. I've got fat free hot dogs with about 2 or 3 grams of carbs and 6 grams of protein per hot dog. Pretty nice snack, but they contain quite a bit of sodium.

if they're fat free and only contain 3g carbs, what else is in there?

i dont worry about sodium as long as your bp is ok. Beef jerkey is good but usually is having a lot of nitrites in it (bad). same for hot dogs and virtually every smoked processed meat.

i however bought a food dehydrator and make my own jerkey w/o preservatives. It is way better than anything you can buy in the store.

2-4 once in awhile shouldn't be a problem.

ok , what brand maybe I might try them!

Just go to your grocery store and check it out. Every brand of hotdogs has fat free by now; I'm sure.

There is such a thing as 'quality protein'. Your not gonna get that from a hot dog. It's ok every now and then, but don't use them as a source of protein. Too many better alternatives out there.

If somebody told you what the hot dog meat was really made from, you'd probably puke your ******* guts out, that also goes for deli meat. Plus with all that sodium, can you say "bloatedness"?

Someone makes cooked chicken which is already cut into strips which are flavored and are very good, can't remember who though. They're at our local Kroger...

that was bad. good...but bad, nonetheless. *lol*

actually it's mexico. they use it for taco meat. however, pig-snouts get used to make hotdogs.

yet another useless bit of information from yours truly. :D

doesn't matter much. they taste good. :D

01-10-2002, 07:41 AM
Damn with that kind of nutritional profile I think I am going to go out and buy some.. fat-free with 6g protein and a couple grams of carbs in each? Jeez!

i likes me some TURKEY JERKY!! not too bad, i used to eat it a lot at my old job...

01-10-2002, 11:54 AM
If I really want a hotdog, I get the fat-free or lowfat turkey kind...still a lot of sodium/processing, I know, but it's better than some alternatives.
