Is Jerky a Macro Friendly Snack?

Building muscle? Maintaining or trying to lose fat? Your nutrition is incredibly important for getting the results you want. Exercising alone is not going to give you the results you want if you are ignoring what goes on in the kitchen.

If caloric restriction does not interest you, then counting macronutrients might be the best option for reaching your goals. Counting macronutrients gives you flexibility in what you eat, and you will rarely feel restricted or hungry.

Macronutrients comprise of protein, carbohydrates and fat and they make up the calories we consume. Unlike calorie restriction, counting macronutrients counts the grams of protein, carbohydrates and fats we eat in our calories. Counting your calories is still important, but when it’s combined with counting macros, you will see better results.

It is often difficult to find pre-packaged food that has good nutritional value, but we think jerky is perfectly macro friendly. Although you might find another snack that is similar calorically, jerky is low in fat, high in protein and low in carbohydrates. Let’s see how it compares to other popular snacks.


Jerky also has a long shelf life and can be stored in your gym bag, in the car or on-the-go with you.
