Often we talk about calories in a negative way, but if you are an athlete or active person, you know calories equal energy! This means that you need to eat the right amount of calories for optimal energy and performance levels. Your caloric intake should be based on your body’s muscle content. The stronger you are, the more calories you need in your diet. The intensity of your activities also will affect how many calories you need. 

For many athletes and on-the-go folks, protein shakes are a staple, but they can be a hassle (not to mention that they usually require refrigeration to be palatable). After a while, you may find yourself wanting something a bit tastier and more convenient. While protein bars might seem like potential protein shake alternatives, the bars can be packed with laundry lists of extra, hard-to-pronounce ingredients as well as unnecessary sugars. That’s why we recommend fueling up with the protein in all-natural FATTYs.

Sweetwood Smokehouse’s all-natural FATTYs are made with Grass-Fed Beef and contains absolutely no artificial ingredients. Plus, there are no added nitrites, nitrates, or MSG. This low-sugar protein source is a super-clean fuel for your body. If you are curious about the number of calories in a FATTY stick, take a look at our nutrition facts and try comparing them to other brands. You will find that the bulk of our calories come from real protein, not junk sweeteners.
