hello, do you have any preference between the different kind of canned tuna?
is it better to use canned tuna with oil or the natural one with water?
thank you

and of course, if it is applied also to other type of fish such mackerel or salmon

I prefer canned tuna in brine, sometimes I also have canned tuna in virgin olive oil.

I haven't seen canned salmon in oil.

I wouldn't recommend eating tuna due to the high mercury content.  There are much healthier alternatives.  I prefer salmon and sardine.  I also eat monkfish and cod, but rarely.

I heard that eating it once or twice a week is OK, but I would eat it less. It is a good thing to have around when you need a protein fix & there is no other protein around.

I preferred it with oil, but since soybean oil is an avoid for me, it is a good thing that most tuna is water-packed.

So, I would assume that type As could have the oil one.  Yes, there are more calories, but I consider the nutrition more than the calories. Low calorie foods make me hungry sooner & probably more likely to binge, so I'll take a little fat as I go along.....

I regularly eat Rubenstein's brand canned salmon right from the can at room temperature.  It's just chunks of salmon (with skin and edible bones) and salt.  I recommend it.

The water-packed salmon from Chicken of the Sea is boneless, mashed like a rough cat food, and has added water.  It's disappointingly bland tasting.

I like the tuna that's packed in olive oil, but hardly ever eat it.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I like Genova in olive oil, though it's ranked #2 here. Never tried the Trader Joe's.
