    Avoid them like the plague.
    Processed meats, even those listed as low-fat, are usually high in sodium and will also contain nitrates which is used as a preservative or as a colouring agent. In some cases, water is forced under extreme pressure into meats like ham to increase the volume of the finished product. You may see on some labels 'No Added Water' which indicates that it has not undergone this process.

    If you are going to buy meat, of any kind, stick to fresh cuts.

    All are loaded with sodium, and processed meats should not even be considered in a diet . If you want meat for a sandwich cook a small turkey and carve it up or chicken tenders pounded thin and grilled are good in a wrap or low carb roll.

    Be creative with your real meats!

    Just to add onto this, they are often loaded with brine as well as water. It's amazing how you can buy a nice size bit of meat cook it and watch it halve in size!!!

    Processed lunch meats are an inferior source of protein at best, plus just by the word processed, additives we just don't need.

    If I do eat this kind of stuff, I get it from the deli and watch them slice it right off the turkey for instance. Even this is rare, cause I don't know how they cooked the turkey.
