I thought that as tuna has no carbohydrates at all, you would need a slice of bread or cereal to digest it properly... Is this true??? COs its what ive been doing for two months and maybe i dont need all those slices of bread afterall

Let me explain the process:

1) food goes into mouth
2) food gets chewed and swallowed
3) food is digested

Damn, I gotta get my infomercial voice for that one.
"Wow SP..That response was quick *AND* easy!!!" <<Hits Applause button>>
but he DID sum it up in 3 small lines.
j/k :D

Seriously though. I would imagine the acid would digest the food with little or no hassle.

I actually remember hearing of a guy who ate the metal off a car. He had a small piece every day or something. forgot exactly how it went, hehe.

But if you eat raw protein you cant digest it properly... As in you waste most of it

When 'bulking' it is a good idea to have balanced meals; meals with a source of protein, carbohyrdates, and fat. I do not believe they really will aid each other in the digestive process although I think it is benificial to eat them together in that you are getting a variety of nutrients at the same time.

So I would say it is still good to eat your slice of bread with tuna.

[smartass mode]Technically degestion starts when the food enters your mouth. You've got pepsin and other assorted goodies in your saliva[/smartass mode]

Where did you read that you need carbs to digest protein? Digestion is a separate issue from insulin spikes for nutrient transport to cells.

It's not raw protein, it's fish.
