thank you

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.
