Default Deli meats-Are they still bad this way?

I used to eat deli meats/ham. Then, I read in the 'What a bodybuilder eats" sticky, that BBers should not eat them. I looked at the Nut. label, on some ham, and found that the only culprit I could find was that it is high in sodium, no fillers, and no significant sat. fat, so no fat used to take up space, like in sausage/hot dogs. But then, I thought, what if I boil ham? I tried it, and I can't taste any salt, I'm eating some as I type (I like multitasking). The stuff's not too expensive, is precooked, and lasts a good while in the fridge. I throw it in a pot after I boil eggs, so no additional setup/cooking time is used. Does it still seem bad?

Doesnt seem bad to me, not completely sure though. I personally like boars head meats and cheeses, they make low sodium versions that taste good, although its pretty expensive compared to other protien sources.

I buy the stuff that's on sale, or is already low-priced. In terms of cheeses, I prefer to eat the white varieties (mozzarella, etc.), they have almost 1/2 less fat than many of the yellow cheeses. But, the yellows are still good. I don't judge based on color

Agreed. I also like Boars Head but it can get expensive quick if you are not careful.

Sounds like the stuff is addictive...I'd better watch out I've never tried the BH prod.'s. I should.

It is very good. That's the problem, you get addicted to it and next thing you know your wallet is screaming in pain.
