Paleo snacks- steve's originial

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 21, 2012 at 1:18 PM

Are "steve's orignal" prepackaged jerky and snack bars ok on the paleo diet? I tried some last night and they were very tasty. Just seems a little higher in sugar than I thought the plan allowed. I am traveling for work this week and thought I would take some with me if they are an ok food choice. Thanks, this is our first week on Paleo.

Tanka bars are good but uber expensive. At the end of the day, I have never advised clients. (I am a statistician who has got into the best shape of my life using paleo principles and helped family and friends get into much better shape.) To be honest, insulin driving obesity is still contested even in paleo circles. There was pretty lively debate at Guyenet's at AHS last August. From what I have seen and read, processed food is really at the heart of our current epidemic(from Matt Metzgar: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22107876) Are you trying to lose weight?

A major part of health boils down to eating real food instead of processed crap. I would rather you have Paleo Kits while traveling than a candy bar.

I weight lift and usually run or some type of cardio. Usually an hour or hour 1/2 each work out. 30 minutes or so straight cardio. I have not tried tanka bars. I am going to check them out on line now. In all honesty, I am just trying to make better choices and I think Paleo will help me get there. If I do stray it seems to me it's better than eating junk all the time. Do you think? or do you think it is about keeping the insulin levels etc...constant?

what are you doing for training? If you are trying to lose weight, I would avoid added sugar. While Steve's original is for a good cause, I would avoid it unless you are dragging in exercise.

they packs do contain a bit of sugar, but honestly, if you're on the road for work, these paleokits are going to be better than 99% of the stuff you'll find in a convenience store. i love them because they fill me up, support a great cause, taste great, and are convenient!

while they're great for an on-the-go-type food, i wouldn't rely on them all the time. when you're on the road, supplement the kits with food from a local grocery store (rotisserie chicken, salad bar, etc.).

the paleo diet is really an all encompassing term. Steve's are meant for Zone(ish) dieters. My view on Zone is that it is absolutely great for athletes.

Whose plan are you trying to follow? What is your workout schedule like? I tend to never need to snack unless I do metcon workout between meals.
