    Now I don't know much about the preservatives so there might just be something in there that's not the best, and there's no arguing that it has a substantial amount of sodium, but just how amazingly healthy does your diet have to be before something like this throws it off?
    Real jerky is just dehydrated salted meat. The salt is supposed to be the preservative, along with the dehydration. What did they call it? "Hard Tack"? I suppose you could live off of it.

    you read the link piratejon posted.

    jerky is strips of lean meat, dried and cured. slim jims are a jerky product, made of low quality meat, fat, connective tissue, and a certain acceptable percentage of bone, that are combined with a lot of salt, sugar, preservatives nd flavorings and then thoroughly processed until they meet a specific definition of "edible."

    jerky and slim jims both include salt and meat. that's about all they've got in common.

    and comparing jerky to hard tack? come on, man.

    proper jerky is, in moderation, an entirely reasonable component of a balanced diet. it's an excellent thing to have on hand for the drive home from the gym, in particular.

    Dysentary is good for weight loss, wouldnt reccommend it though.

    Principles for weight loss are
    1. Healthy food
    2. Excercise
    3. Lots of water

    that looks like a lot of carbs is it still good for weight loss? having a packet every day or every other day?

    If you're in the United States, I would stay away from beef completely unless you can verify it's grass-fed beef. Since corn is subsidized by the government, beef steers in the US are corn-fed which is not a natural diet for them. To keep them from dying, they get pumped full of hormones and antibiotics. In essence, the beef steers are malnourished, so the meat isn't going to be all that nutritious. Plus, the antibiotics contribute to the larger problem of antibiotic immunity.

    Did you just read The Omnivore's Dilemma?

    Eat Wild lists were you can get grass fed beef in your area, or shipped to you.... I've found it in Florida for $4.50lb for a 1/4 steer, which is around 150lbs processed. That includes paying a Usually only 20lbs of that will be ground, so it works out, as you get steak and what not included. The prices go down to as low as $4lb for a whole steer.


    "2006 Grass-fed Angus Family Grade
    Beef Prices:

    Whole Beef: $3.50/lb.

    Half Beef: $3.75/lb.

    Quarter Beef: $3.95/lb.

    The USDA requires that we sell our beef by carcass hanging weight. This means that you do not pay for the hide, head or legs of the steer, just the food grade part. Average weight for a whole is 600 lbs. Beef is cut to your specification. There will be some loss on your carcass depending on how you wish it cut. A cut sheet will be mailed to you after receiving your deposit. South Marion Meats is our processor and will charge you .45 per lb. plus a service fee of $30 per whole steer, $15 per half and $7.50 per quarter to cut, wrap and freeze."

    No I didn't, but I'm about to.

    I got that info from my father who just had to have a piece of his colon removed. He was told all about the dangers of beef.

    This is the most retarded thing I have read in a while. Sorry about your pops and his colon situation but I can bet my farm that it wasn't evil government subsidized corn fed beef that did it.:bduh:
