# of calories in beef jerky

Anyone know how many calories there would be in 29 grams of a beef jerky type product? I can’t seem to find this info anywhere.

It depends on the brand and the cut of meat. Most lean beef jerky is about 14g P, 4g C, 1g F and 80 cals per ounce, but it can be much different depending on flavoring and cut of meat. Email or call the manufacturer if you really want the information.

DUDE! STAY AWAY FROM THAT SHIT! I ate a bag of jerky on a low-carb diet once, trying to get a new tasty choice. I gained like 5 pounds of water over night! I was drinking about 2 gallons of water per day the next two days trying to lose it so I could more accurately monitor my progress - that extra water scewed my numbers. Check the sodium content, IT’S HUGE!

try making your own, then you can control the amount of sodium
