Hey bro, so is it bad to eat on a cut? I mean those cold meat slices. For example something like this: http://www.pillers.com/images/products/roastbeef.jpg

I don't see any reason why you can't fit that into your macros if you want to eat that.

Nitrates are enough for me to want to avoid it.

I'd avoid them, but that's me.

If i want meat, i get it from the proper source. A big fat steak or a piece of chicken breast.

I stick with the deli meats from the grocery who actually cut them for you, not sure how much better they are compared to the pre packaged ones... but they sure taste better!

It has been reported that people normally consume more nitrates from their vegetable intake than from the cured meat products they eat. Spinach, beets, radishes, celery, and cabbages are among the vegetables that generally contain very high concentrations of nitrates (J. Food Sci., 52:1632). The nitrate content of vegetables is affected by maturity, soil conditions, fertilizer, variety, etc.


It has been estimated that 10 percent of the human exposure to nitrite in the digestive tract comes from cured meats and 90 percent comes from vegetables and other sources.

personally I try to avoid that stuff... but I ate them for years. It's better then no protein at all... if that's all you got then work with it. Ideally you are going to want some real cuts of meat... if your mom is cool see if she will buy you some chicken... grill that stuff up and keep it in your fridge... it's not as convenient as deli meat but if you want to do it right there is a lot of "inconvenient" stuff you gotta do.
