    Anyone eat this stuff?

    Never had it before but stumbled upon it and I guess one can of turkey chili with no beans has:

    380 cals
    6g fat
    34g carbs
    48g protein

    It didn't taste half bad, but a bit of cheese and saltine crackers makes it much better.
    Considering it only takes ~ 3min to make I was pretty impressed with the content... High protein, moderate carbs and pretty low on cals.

    I usually eat nally's beef chili which has less protein than that but I don't eat it for its maconutritional content.... I eat it cause it's fucking delish :bowdown:

    Yeah, I am gonna shop around and try to find something similar in cal and carbs content. I don't mind losing a bit of protein for better flavor as long as the cals and carbs are in check.

    I just wasn't aware that canned chili could be so high in protein and relatively low in everything else.

    Yeah, I definitely eat canned chili at least a few times per week. It may not be the most healthy, especially in regards to sodium, but it isn't diet-busting.

    yeah maybe if you want some strong farts :rofl: I seriously have to plan out when I eat my chili... I can't do it if I have class or the gym any time for the rest of the day... so I'm limited to saturdays or late night after working out and/or night class, which I have monday-thursday. The farts are too strong and I think it makes me weaker when I try to hold in farts while working out :rofl:

    I take a shit pre-gym without fail, usually pre-school too on the days that I can.


    that doesn't stop the gas :noes: today I ate some bangin Hunnan chicken and oyster sauce tofu and beef with hella bak choy (sp) and 3 hours later in class I was holding farts in like it was my job.


    I guess I'm just a gassy dude :o when i stick to the Pur diet it never happens though.

    except for the sodium there doesn't seem to be too much bad stuff going on with canned chili. It's not high in fat at all and often has more protein than carbs.

    turkey meat browned with garlic and onion. throw some tomato paste and spicy v8 juice in a sauce pan, add seasonings (i use paprika, chili powder, cayane pepper, salt). add veggies to your taste. i use kidney beans, corn, red/green bell peppers, diced onions, and chopped tomatoes. add meat.

    cook for a long time, put in bowl, eat with a salad.

    Tastes like awesomeness but has high sodium.

    Hormel is the only kind of chili I've ever seen :dunno:

    I cook quite a lot actually.... It's one of my passions.

    But this was after studying for mid-terms and coming home @ midnight. I wanted something fast, easy, and protein packed and under 500 cals. This did the trick and only took ~ 3min to prepare.

    Normally I would make my own with sirloin ground beef (5% fat), but I like having stuff as a backup just incase I am tired and lazy.
