    Heinz Baked Beans - Canned






    Ignorant question here: is it OK for me to eat 2 cans of Heinz Baked Beans per day:

    My concern is the sodium.

    US RDA says 2,400 mg day, which is about a teaspoon

    UK says the upper limit on sodium intake should be, 1,600 mg per day:


    Each can has: 1,980 mg of sodium. So, 2 cans would be 3,960 G of Sodium.
    I suppose this is way too much, even though I sweat during the day, and drink about 4 liters of water per day.

    20 G of protein
    65 Carbs
    23 G of sugar

    Also, is this too much sugar?



    TIA

    That is alot of sodium, even with moderate sweating and proper intake of water I wouldn't habitually eat two cans a day.

    Besides, much of the nutrients in foods get lost in the canning process.

    I would go with a healthier substitute.

    It isn't that much sugar, but it certaintly could be done away with. Whether or not it is too much depends on your goals and what the rest of your nutrient intake is like.

    Personally, I would ditch it.

    fufu,

    Thanks.

    So,

    Should I:

    1. eat only 1 can per day or

    2. ditch it all together?


    TIA again.

    Well, 1 would be better than 2, and none would be better than 1.

    However, that is for your general health and well-being. I'm not really basing that statement on how successful your diet will be, if you are on one that is.

    If you are proactively health concious about your diet 1 can is no biggy. If you were trying to lose weight as efficient as possible, I wouldn't eat any of it.

    Dam you must really like those! When I eat them now I drain them and rinse them then stir fry with some peppers and whatever meat. No need to eat them habitually in my opinion. I would cut them to a few times a week max!

    Advice is provided here to help people eat as healthy as possible if they so choose. Limiting information on efficient dieting is not the goal of this forum.
