7 Signs You Aren’t Eating Enough Beef Jerky
We can all tell when our friends and family aren’t quite in their element. If you find yourself saying “friends change” or “you’re not acting like yourself,” you may have a friend or family member who is suffering from the lack of eating enough beef jerky.
If your friend recently was on a jerky kick and quit cold jerky, they might be suffering from jerky withdrawals. There is help out there for sufferers, but first, you need to know the 7 signs you aren't eating enough beef jerky. #QuitColdJerky
- Your iron levels are LOW
Simply put, you’re not eating enough red meat! Anemia is more of a problem for those who choose not to eat red meat, however low iron levels can affect a lot of people. Low iron levels mean you have fewer red blood cells. While each person is different, if your low iron levels are believed to be caused by your diet, simply eat more jerky! Try out Beef Hot Jerky!
- You’re way too skinny
If you’re not as strong as you used to be and weigh considerably less, you might not be getting enough substance and protein in your diet. Jerky is low in fat and carbs, and HIGH in protein. Grab you a slab and get to eating so you can be back to yourself in no time! #grabaslab
- You’re NOT fun at parties
Protein once again! A lack of protein in your diet can cause you more fatigue and give you less energy. If you are poorly fueled and trying to show your friends you still "have it," you should probably stay home. #jerkyfuel
- You put on a few pounds
Yes. You can lose weight from not getting enough protein, but if you don’t get enough good fats in your diet, you won’t be able to burn fat near as easily! Jerky has monounsaturated fat, a combination of several good fats, that help protect against heart disease, improve insulin sensitivity, and help you lose weight.
- You’re a zombie
LACK OF SLEEP. That’s right. Not eating jerky means you might not be sleeping well. Maybe not...BUT... Jerky before bed could mean you sleep like a baby. The USDA has a lot to say about protein, which can help balance your blood sugar, cortisol and serotonin levels, and help you sleep all through the night. #JerkyBeforeBed
- You haven’t been feeling Wolverine-like lately
Marvel’s Wolverine can heal himself almost instantly. It would be nice if humans could heal as fast as him, but we do have self-healing functions. If you’re finding you don’t heal nearly as quickly as you used to, again, you might have a protein problem… and we all know the cure for a protein problem by this point in the blog, right?! #JerkyHeals
- Road Trips aren’t as fun as they used to be
Remember the days when you’d play I Spy, listen to extended audio books and guess what Disney character each cloud looked like in the sky? If you can’t recall, you probably left all of your sense at checkout. Go ahead, put a beef jerky, beef hot jerky, or literally anything else in your cart and checkout. What are you waiting for? That one funky-looking cloud isn’t going to name itself! #BetterRoadTrips
