    I was watching a video the other day (posted somewhere on the forum) that said the only problem with eating the same food over and over is your body can actually become allergic to that food. The video did say that the allergy will general go away when you switch to something else, but if you eat that food over and over, you'll likely become allergic to it as well.

    Best bet from what I've learned here is just mix it up. Eggs, Chicken, Tuna, Steak, Cottage Cheese... etc. Plenty of affordable food to fill out your day with.

    There's a lot of mercury in tuna and the safe number to eat is really like 2 cans a week. Obviously people eat more than that, but you're eating A LOT more than that. You'll know if you have mercury poisoning though, either your hair will fall out or you will die, so be sure to look for those signs.
