There's a big difference between "natural style" beef jerky and processed jerky sticks like slim jims. Natural jerky is extremely lean. You just have to read the ingredients to find the ones that are lowest in preservatives. The salt is an issue, and I don't eat jerky every day, but it's a good treat food for me. Part of the issue is I love to drink Coke with jerky, and I don't need the pop, so I don't eat the jerky as much as I used to. Lately I'm addicted to Greek yogurt to get my protein fix.
