The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Beef Jerky!

    So I was walking around our Trader Joe's Store and noticed the Beef Jerky and noticed that a bag has about 3oz of beef jerky totaling about 210 calories and 33g of protein an about a total of 15g of carbs per bag...So my question is if this stuff good source of protein and overall healthy to eat as a daily snack, they have different flavors (terayaki, salt and pepper etc..) and all are really good. Do you guys think this stuff is ok for cutting/losing weight and getting ripped or better for bulking (or for both)


    Thanks

    linky to 2 flavors and ingredients:

    http://www.bestbeefjerky.org/2008/07...-original.html

    http://www.bestbeefjerky.org/2008/08...-peppered.html

    They all have a turkey jerky with these nutr. info for each bag:

    240 calories
    44 grams protein
    24 grams carbohydrate
    1080 mg sodium
    40 mg cholesterol
    0 g fat

    The answer to this is the same as pretty much everything else. If it fits into your macros, eat it.
    If one person can do something, anyone can learn to do it.

    Macros are protein, carbs, fat. Basically if it fits into your diet plan eat it. As for better for cutting or bulking, the ammount you eat will determine that.

    Salt isn't bad unless you have a pre-existing heart issue and if your getting proper hydration, which you should be anyway.

    High sodium diets can lead to many different health problems, including high blood pressure. Plus sodium helps to retain water. So the more sodium, the more water weight.

    Its just a personal choice. I try to stay away from high sodium foods.
