    Beef Jerkey

    Anybody else here think that eating Beef Jerkey as an after workout snack is a better supplement then say eating a protein bar? Since it's cheaper and also has high quality protein.

    I don't think one serving of beef jerky has as many calories as one protein bar. Maybe if you ate a bunch of jerky it might compare. But protein bars also have some carbs ,sugars, vitamins and other **** to help you recover. Not to mention jerky can be a little pricey compared to a protein bar especially if you need more than one serving of jerky.

    The only reason I eat a protein bar is when I don't have time for a meal. But I do enjoy some good jerky, can't wait until the jerky experts chime in on this one.

    Beef jerky is not bad. You're better off with a liquid post-workout snack -- your body absorbs it much faster because it does not have to break it down as much. One of the better post workout snacks, honestly, is low/nonfat chocolate milk. Good, fast protein and carb source. There also are some specialized commercial products (e.g. Biotest's Surge Recovery) if you want to spend the money (or some homebrew stuff if you want to spend less).

    Another one of the things I like about Beef Jerkey is that you don't have to worry about it melting as you would a protein bar or getting spoiled as drink such as chocolate milk might.

    Beef Jerky has a lot of protein and calories, however it is also high in fat, cholesterol, sodium, and may contain nitrates which increase your risk of certain cancers.

    Protein bars generally don't contain the best source of protein or vitamins, contain lots of sugar, is calorie dense, and expensive.

    Buying a gallon of milk and chocolate is the most affordable and probably the most effective route to take.

    BTW Ray's Own Brand is the best damn jerky I have ever tried.

    Chocolate milk and Snickers are awesome.

    +1 - It's definitely better than a cheeseburger or crap out of a vending machine, but not ideal by any means.

    I'll eat the living **** out of some _insert_animal_here_ jerky though.

    As long as protein shake is ruled out, I'm partial to two hardboiled eggs and a banana.
