Ok so one thing i was told to eat by my coach was baked beans. They are high in protein and low in fat. I am just wandering about the sodium they hold. I can't really find a nutrition label at the moment, but if you guys have seen one, do you think that is too much extra salt to be taking in or is it all good?

it really depends on the rest of your diet...

They have a lot of carbs. I am on a bulk now and love them. For me they're like pringles, once I pop I just can't stop.

If you are that worried about it there are baked beans with reduced salt & sugar available.

I practically survived on them at one point, can barely look at a can these days.

i hated them since i was little, my coach told me how good they were because they were high in protein low in fat, so i just took them up and they are a lot better than i remember! :clap:

They are also full of HFCS, but you can buy organic(low sugar/low sodium). I see nothing wrong with it if it fits into your needs for the day.

Or better yet, you can make big batches of your own. Although I have no idea what the recipe is. Im guessing beans/ketchup and a sweetener ... but dont quote me on that.

Why are you worried about sodium? Sodium's (http://chemo.net/sodium-.htm) good for your muscles - unless you've got to drop water in a hurry or have some sort of blood pressure problem, you have nothing to worry about.

I have always wondered about them too. Good source of protein and SUPER high in fiber! How bad are they for dinner if not trying to bulk up? Probably a better meal for luch with all the carbs?

theres still no reason to go overboard with something like 1.5g in a meal. Right?

salts good and all, but with a history of hypertension in my family, there is such a thing as too much. I wouldnt go overboard...

Ye cant beat some whole grain toast with a bit of margerine and beans man.. excellent as a snack!

Dont go overboard though... some seriously gassy side affects might occur.
