Re: Tuna and Water Diet

Yeah, I use it every few months for about 4 days just to clean out my system. Never used it long term nor would I recommend it.

talk to ya later

This sounds interesting, i think i might give it a go. But how much should i eat? I buy the packets because they taste better than the cans. I know its 3.5 servings in a packet, so eating 3 packets a day along with water, would that be sufficient? Would this be all i eat? No fruits/vegs/etc? Thanks

Re: Tuna and Water Diet

I can not imagine that this would be healthy. It is hardly balanced nutrition let alone allowing yourself the "extras" of junk food here and there. I would suggest just eating healther and getting more exercise if you want to lose weight. If I tried a diet like this, I would end up bindging later on.

Re: Tuna and Water Diet

Yeah, like I said before I wouldn't go on this diet longer than 3 days. It isn't to reach any goals such as losing weight or gaining weight, I just use it because afterwards I feel clean as a whistle, kind of like a fresh start.

talk to ya later

P.S. When I do it, it's eight cans a day, each one complimented with a glass of water...that's it

Re: Tuna and Water Diet

yup, this diet is only supposed to last 2-3 days max. I saw it on a bodybuilding site and read about it on another forum.

Well, I've eaten about 2-3 cans of tuna a day for the last 5 years and after reading someone else's post on mercury levels in fish (I think it was Naxis) I went to the doc's to get my merc levels checked just outta curiousity. They said they were fine, just slightly above average but not anywhere near the point of having to change my diet. I eat tons of fish besides tuna as well just out of the lake at my house: Walleye, Pike, Trout, Bass etc. But that's not to say that it's unsubstantiated evidence, I could just be an exception. I'm going to go back every few months to routinely check on it to make sure it doesn't all of a sudden spike (since large spikes in mercury levels can have catastrophic effects) well anyways, that's just my experience
