    Ham

    So no one ever seems to mention ham as a 'healthy' food but if you get the right ham steak the macros are similar to poultry...

    Yeah, I like ham but you have to bear in mind it's quite salty and might contain preservatives that have been implicated in causing health problems by certain studies. Fine in moderation like most things IMO...

    I eat ham all the time! I get it without perservatives and throw it in salads or breakfast with eggs. Sometimes I can find leaner options of ham that have really high amounts of protein <3

    Ham is wonderful and keeps variety in your diet (i.e. protein sources).

    I always wonder with ham if the really cheap option vs expensive is different in terms of protein quality.


    Like basically, will you build muscle the same whether eating cheap or having expensive ham as part of your meal plan?
    I have a good joke about water retention. But I'm going to hold onto it for now.

    I'm not an elevator, but I certainly do lift.

    Going to the gym? Ha, it's just a weights of time.

    Steroids and ass. They certainly go well together.

    I'm the BB king..of puns. I train my back using only fish. I love my macker-rows.

    Cheaper stuff is probably going to have more preservatives - and is also made from the scrag ends which are basically compressed together. The protein quality is not likely to be different but the fat content is probably higher.

    All ham has nitrates or similar in it, otherwise it doesn't go pink like that. Before the nitrates are added it is very pale and unappetizing. If you see it made, they have a machine that literally has a **** load of needles that inject that poisonous **** into the meat. I know people who have had bowel cancer, and even if you only reduce the risk of getting it slightly, it's worth it, believe me.

    Also it's generally an extremely unethical meat in the way they're raised, that's not really a nutritional consideration, but it still shouldn't be ignored.

    Processed meat has consistently been linked to various health problems. Cancer being one of them.

    If you want to eat as healthy as possible avoid processed meat.

    That being said, the increase in risk is relatively small.

    Haha ''scrag ends''. I've not heard that in years.

    But scrag ends compressed together..that's how they made One Direction.
