    TUNA is top notch for protein

    i eat 1 can of tuna every day....atleast

    not something everyone will do, but it helps me get my protein intake for the day without having to add a extra shake
     
  4. brain if you can stomach it, or get it. it is almost 100% protien. next id go with tuna, lean turkey/chicken breast.
     
  5. Chutebox, check a thread we had up a few days ago, apparently tuna isnt good to eat everyday. idunno, i eat it alot though.

    Is it true your body may only digest around 35 grams/ hour? Making meals over 35g's of protein not worth it?

    Why does no one every mention lobster?? From what I have seen it has more protien and less fat than just about any other seafood.

    I know its expensive but It is good stuff.

    I thought tuna was bad for you everyday only if you're a pregnant woman or a small child.

    I think the Tuna being bad for you comes from concerns about Mercury content, which would explain the concern for pregnant women and children. If you are worried about mercury content, just choose a type of fish that does not eat other fish and you will be fine.

    Wait, I thought there was a discussion on this, and as it turned out, the FDA does regulate Mercury.

    egg.

    all other protien is measured by the protein in eggs. It is the best source of protein hands down.
