Merc. Poisoning from Tuna!!!!!!
I've been eating 5-6 cans of Tuna every single day for the past year. And for the past few months Ive been feeling like pure shit. Depressed, tired, slight hair loss, etc. Which are all signs of Merc Posng. And Im 95% sure tha Tuna is the problem. My problem is what to eat in place of Tuna or fish in general. I can only take down so many chicken breast, eggs, meat, etc. With Tuna it was so easy (nasty as hell too, but easy) just open the can and enjoy.....well maybe not enjoy just chew and swallow. ANd the best thing was the price .39 a can is damn good fellas. I can't afford to buy all the protein in the form of chicken as a college student. So I was thinking of using protein powder in place of this. I know that real food is ALWAYS better to take in throughout the day besides for a PW meal BUT if I used egg protein or milk protein powder would this be considered a "real food?"

Canned tuna is not a problem. Eat all you want. Limit tuna steaks to 1 or 2 per week.
There are other threads on this showing the documetation of mercury levels of canned vs. steaks.

I would suggest instead of tuna move yourself onto eggs.. eat a ratio of like 4-5 whites to a yolk so you don't have to worry too much about cholesterol.

Good point. Try to see what canned salmon goes for and substitute it for some of your tuna. It is very low in mercury and has tons of protien and good fats

If you are eating 5-6 cans of tuna a day, you are getting tons of sodium as well.

I buy the frozen bags of generic brand chicken breasts from Walmart. They cost about $7.50 for 7 chicken breasts. 1/2 a breast (3oz) is about equal to a can of tuna in protein content, and only cost approx 50 cents.
