My 1st question is: Any good Nutrisystem diets/diet programs that are vegan-friendly? Many thanks for any answer or 2. Another question... Today a coworker brought in a giant bag of Beef Jerky to snack on. I had a piece. That piece did turn into 2 pieces, but 2 pieces did not turn into 3, 4, or the rest of the bag..

It did get me to thinking. Is Beef Jerky a good snack? Its low fat, low carb, low calorie, high protein. It does have a lot of sodium though..

Just wonder what others thought about Beef Jerky as an appropriate snack...

Beef jerky is much desired by the sasquatch. Have you ever seen a fat sasquatch? That answers your question..

However, I would also be concerned about the sodium...

I used to make my own using London Broil or deer meat, no fat, slice thin (electric slicer) and marinade in my special sauce with no salt or sugar added. Leave in the fridge overnight, dehydrate the next day. Great snack, no worries. Unfortunately it's been almost a year since I can't find beef or deer jerky on the menu..

Deer Hunters: If you have extra, freeze it wrap it real good, pack it with ice and send it to me. I won't get to go this year...

Here's a random beef jerky breakdown. On this one at least the sodium is very high, and the fat is a bit high. If you had a lower fat version 1 peice would probably fit as a protein sub...

I fear posting, but I have to share a great alternative to beef jerkey. Try the OSTRIM beef and ostrich snacks. They make both a jerkey and a "slimjim" type snack and they are really tastey..

Here are the stats:.

Calories: 80.

Total Fat Cal: 15.

Fat: 1.5%.

Sat Fat: 0.5%.

Cholesterol: 25mg.

Sodium: 310mg.

Potassium: 550mg.

Total Carb: 2g.

Sugars: 1g.

Protein: 14g.

They come in regular, pepper and teriyaki flavors and are portion controlled. I found them on.

Click on the drop down and choose "ostrim". They are really good!..
