Anyone do the can tuna diet before? New year time to drop some major weight. I'm going on the canned tuna diet. 1 can of tuna for breakfast lunch and dinner with some veggies mixed in and an apple. Water coffee. Wish me luck bro's

Sardines are tasty. How do they compare to a can of tuna health wise. In water not oil obviously
And I finished my first day of the tuna diet I actually didn't starve as much as I thought I would I guess I'll make it hopefully
Had a friend do this. He lost 30 lbs and is now slowly gaining it all back. He lost so much muscle from such a high calorie deficit that he can barely squat 1 pl8 at 240 lbs body weight. Do it the right way, crash dieting is garbage.
The cans of tuna I buy are 100 cal ea. With veggies you're looking at 700 cal a day optimistically. You can't sustain that. And even if you do youll look like shit. Not to mention youll gain a ton of fat back when you inevitably go back to your old habits because youve developed zero dietary discipline. Why not make a smart decision and plan a diet that will take a bit longer but drastically increases chance of success. Jk that's too hard.
when I did my level 2 fitness instructing course
the tutor said he did the tuna diet
nothing but tuna and veggies for every meal
said he ended up in hospital with mercury poisoning
South African here (products and quality may be different):
- When I studied I was cash-strapped and used to bulk-buy tuna as main staple
- Did a bit of research on brands (some tuna has lower mercury rates than others; check tins and info carefully)
- Any can of tuna with a tomato sauce and springwater mix is ill-advised (less deep water catches/lower quality fish and higher mercury)
- The smaller the actual tuna fish, the lower the mercury (Albacore tuna is high in Mercury; Skipjack and Tongol are low in mercury) -> go for chunk light
- I comfortably ate a half a can a day with spinach and greens
- Rotated in skinless chicken breast
- Reduced drinking as liver needs to be at 100%
- Lost weight month with moderate exercise (wasn't looking to lose a lot of weight); good protein source
- Look into recipes with cayenne pepper to keep eating tuna long-term (does get bland)
You can safe consumption at nrdc.org (weight and tuna type taken into account) :)
christian bale did pretty much this diet to become super skinny for the machinist and nearly died
pic related you in a month you fucking imbecile
I suggest you read up. Skipjack could technically have as much mercury as other fish, but they dont live as long and dont take up as much from the ocean. Skipjack can be eaten 1 can a day if not more
Literally first results for "Skipjack mercury"
>no more than 6 can/mo
>moderate mercury, some 4 cans/mo
>canned light: once a week
It's less poisoned than albacore, but that's pretty much it.
>Skipjack could technically have as much mercury as other fish, but they dont live as long and dont take up as much from the ocean
Now, that's momscience. You can't say that they could have the same concentrations of mercury "but" they are fine because the live less (?) - implying that if they live less/are smaller they have less mercury, something that's false in your own hypothesis. Logic, how does it work?
FAGGOTS THIS AN OLD SCHOOL CONTEST PREP THING FROM THE 70s AND YOU ALL GOT IT WRONG.
THE REAL THING INVOLVES EATING A CAN OF TUNA AND HALF A LT. OF WATER EVERY 2/3 HOURS FOR 2 TO 4 WEEKS TOPS
It's scary knowing there are people out there as stupid as OP to think this way about "diets". A diet shouldn't be a fucking quick fix fad for a few months you dumb faggot. It should be altering your overall calorica and nutrient intake to better match goals. Fucking infuriates me when retards like OP take diet to mean only eating Y foods and avoiding all X foods. Grow up dipshit
