So I'm living out of the US for the next couple of years, and we get a shipment of some foods you can't get here and all.
We got a bunch of canned food, which includes Libby's Corned Beef. Here's the nutritional values.
Now, there's 6 servings in that can, so if you take all of that and multiplied it by six, you get.Total Fat 7g 11%
Saturated Fat 3g 15%
Trans Fat 0g
Cholesterol 40mg 13%
Sodium 490mg 20%
Total Carbohydrate 0g 0%
So 42g of fat, and 84g of protein, with 0 carbs, but the kicker is nearly 3000mg of sodium, which to my understanding is high.Calories 720
Sodium 2940 mg
Total Fat 42 g
Saturated 18 g
Total Carbs 0 g
Polyunsaturated 0 g
Dietary Fiber 0 g
Monounsaturated 0 g
Sugars 0 g
Trans 0 g
Protein 84 g
Cholesterol 240 mg
I honestly do like corned beef, been eating it since I was a kid, but didn't know that there was that much protein in it until I started dieting and reading the labels on stuff.
I can eat a whole can of it for breakfast with like two slices of bread, so it's okay with me to eat it. It also fits into my macros.
Just need some input on this.
Is it okay to get that much sodium?
Is it an okay source of protein and fats?
Anyone else got something to add to the whole corned beef thing?
Aiming for cutting by the way.

I'm not being critical, it's a sincere question.
