Tuna is high in protein. You know that protein is the major building material for muscle, blood, skin, hair, nails and internal organs. Protein is also necessary for the formation of hormones, enzymes and antibodies.
In addition, protein is essential in fueling your metabolism, maintaining muscle tone and helping your body burn fat. Including tuna in your diet is a healthy and delicious way to stay fit and lose weight
Tuna is a fair source of Omega-3 oils, but salmon has over 4 times more. See Salmon listing for more fish eating benefits.
Aside from the Omega 3s, and the protein, you can also find selenium, B Vitamins, and Vitamin D in tuna.
Canned tuna in oil is known for high mercury levels. If you eat canned tuna, make it chunk light tuna in water.
But you’ve really gotta try fresh tuna on the grill. It’s delicious – even to a not too big on fish person like me 😉
