Yes, you need lots of protein on off days too. If supps are killing your wallet, tuna is a damn cheap source of protein.

Don't drink milk all day, it still has some fat, and the carbs are super high. Your diet shouldn't change between on and off days, save for the fact that your post workout shake/meal will be changed a bit. Same carb/fat/prot ratios and amounts remain no matter if you're training that day or not

Only 4 grams of protein for the egg I believe, 3 grams for the white, and 1 gram for the yolk

Eggs 0wn tuna. :p
One medium egg white has 3.5g protein, and one yolk gives 2.5.

Eat the whole damn egg. About 8gs for jumbo, 6 for medium, 7 large. Check cartoon. Tuna is cheap. Hamburger is cheap. Are trying to gain or lose weight?

Eggs? Tuna?

Pfft.... sure, if you're cutting.

Eat steak, chicken, and Burger King Whoppers if you're bulking! :D

Oh yeah.... you're also taking cost into consideration.

Well, then I agree with eggs and tuna. Cost per gram of protein can't really be beaten with tuna. Also look into chicken thighs. It takes some trimming to get rid of a lot of the fat, but you can usually find them very cheap.

Good IMO. Throw a little mayo and some onions or green peppers and you have some tuna casserole, or something along those lines anyway.

If you're on a serious bulk having a whopper now and then is far from detrimental to gains and is a good way to get calories and protein.

Just get 2 whoppers with cheese and hold the mayo. Empty calories would be fries or a milkshake.

What's good to mix with tuna aside from mayo?

Low-calorie wise, at least.

Tabasco, mustard, or Mrs. Dash...these are some of the things I use

And 99 grams of saturated fat. :p
Seriously, though, moderation is key when eating that stuff.
