    Tuna only three times a week?

    I have heard countless times that it is unwise to eat tuna more than three times per week.

    Wondering what the board thought.

    On what grounds have your sources told you that tuna is bad more than 3x per week?

    Eating tuna more than once a YEAR would make me throw up. It's totally disgusting IMO.

    I could not agree with you more. The health benefits are to good to ignore, however.

    Atfiv, check out the following recipe sticky I found here on the nutrition section: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=26231. There really are some great ideas that create GREAT tasting tuna meals. You will be surprised. I know I was.

    I have been eating 2 cans of tuna a day for the last week. I only plan on doing if for 12 weeks (bulking) and then I probably wont have tuna in a long time. Should I cut it down to 1 can a day?

    I'm a fan of tuna, and I tend to mix up my day from time to time and replace the chicken breast with tuna. when you consume chicken for three of 6 meals it gets a tad boring sometimes. mmm tuna stirfry...

    As for the mercury poisoning...I'm not too worried about it. If you read into the research above and beyond what the American FDA did, you'll discover that their announcement was made on shaky research that has been discredited by other research done on the same topic.

    lol...it's hard for me to get down too...even though I can force myself to eat a lot of different stuff, it just makes me gag like nothing else. I wish I knew some way to eat it and I'd enjoy it...:-/

    I have switched recently to buying fresh tuna steaks instead of cans. I grill up 3 or 4 tuna steaks and eat them over a 2-3 day period.

    Much better flavor, and far less mercury. However much more expensive. I can get tuna around here for about $7.99 a pound for fresh quality cuts..

    i'm not a tuna eater. i tried it for the first time straight out the can with no additives and the **** gave me runs for days. my stomach got so bubbly and I became EXTREMELY gaseous. I was on an archaeology trip in the desert so tuna was the best bet for food. Hell will freeze over before I try that nasty $hit again!
