I just wanna know if i'm okay eating tuna as my main source of protein,

I get approx 140g of my protein a day through tuna.


ps
Does excess protein sometimes give you guys stomach pains at night? i usually get them after i've had a hard workout day. :hump:

Mercury poisoning is a real problem

Cut down on your tuna.

No, never, but I can eat just aboyt anything. Although Nitrean makes me the gassiest asian on the planet.

Is there a real differerence between the tins that cost 27 pence and the ones that are £1.19? The nutritional values are exactly the same, and both are chunks.

How is that so, if they have the same drained weight and nutritional value?

sure they might have the same nutritional value etc... but they aren't as tasty to eat, at least in my oppinion. You guys tried crab meat? thats by far my favorite, but alas at almost £2 a can, it's above my budget.

Have a look on the internet, a you can get a 5kg bucket of decent protein powder for around 25 quid. (90% protein)

Thats about 100 servings of 45g of protein for 25p each! More protein than tuna and alot cheaper.

I hope my maths is right:drooling:

Tuna is normally a fatty fish, but most of the fat is removed during canning.

You should go for fattier fishes that keep their fat once canned, such as herring salmon and sardines. With the last two, you also get the benefits of eating the mineral dense bones. You do not get more protein for your bucks, but you get more calories and more nutrition in general.

Of course depending on where you live some of these could be more or less expensive...

I strongly believe that protein should be well balanced with fat.

Edit: I was looking at the info on canned salmon, 1 big can (1 pound) has over 7 grams of omega 3, close to 1g of calcium and a good deal of other minerals, 631 calories.
