Ok I have been eating a lot of Star-Kist Tuna for a long time; well here recently I have got a few scales in the can. I tried switching to albacore tuna, no luck I found two today. I donít think Iíll be able to eat tuna again without gagging. Now I need a replacement high protein low carb meal that can be easily prepared. So far all I can come up with is beef jerky, but that will get too expensive quick.

Go fishing and scale them yourself.

come to arkansas and shoot one of the million deer that run around every road and field... or I can do it for you :) A decent sized buck or doe will yield months worth of meat.

i was gonna post the exact same thing, but Dominator beat me to it. I've been having 2 tuna sandwiches at school. I'm getting sick of it...and it makes your breath stink. What else can I eat at school besides tuna...and tastes nice?

No one suggest cottage cheese...i tried some and i don't like it.

Why does protein rich food taste like **** dammit!!

:nod:

Where's the_doc? He can tell us his fishing stories and tell us how to properly clean a fish. :)

Scales...just think of it as extra fiber :p

Try canned chicken. It's low carb/low fat/high protein much like canned tuna but without the scales. Of course, you might get a feather every now and then. ;)

You could try that new tuna filet in the can, but it is kind of expensive. You could also get some of the pre-cooked chicken breasts in the frozen foods section. Just pop them in the microwave. They are not as good as cooking it yourself but fast.

I alternate canned salmon with tuna on different days. It has like 80+ grams of protein per 14 0z can (split it over 2 meals)

If you look close, canned salmon has vertabrae in it....(YES LITTLE FISHY SPINES) thats better then scales...how?

And don't do jerky..it's too high in sodium...well the packaged kind is.

Try a different brand of tuna...or maybe that vacuum pouched kind..thats pretty good quality fishflesh.

alaskan pollock is dirt cheap... you can throw a bunch in the oven the night before, bake them up and toss them in the fridge. Then snack on them as needed the next day

there is nothing worse than opening a can of tuna fish only to find dark pink meat with fish scales in there that are big hard clumps... :(

I'm with Natural Animal. Take a look, take a bite, and get over it. It is jsut a little flavoring mixed in for good luck. Or you can come to Ohio and shoot deer like me, and enjoy a nice healthy slab of meat, mmmmmmmmmm, I love my venison!

I hardly ever eat tuna. Canned chicken breast has 45grams of protein, make to sandwiches of that, and you have 55 grams of protein in one meal, that is 1/4 of my total protein intake. I also like canned chicken breast better. I don't really like any kind of fish.

I think canned chicken is awful. It is so salty.
