I Just Drank a Can of Tuna?!


#1

So Im trying to get some food in me before I go to sleep and I really have nothing besides tuna and protein powder I love tuna but just thinking of eating a can with tapatio sauce right now does not sound appatizing and I know Id have the worst time getting it down so what I deciced to do was put the tuna in a cup put some tabasco in there with some water and just throw it down my throat then swallow it.

I was able to get the can down in about 3.5 gulps. The tabasco killed a lot of the tuna taste. Now I just got some good protein in me without the hassle of eating it but the thought now is almost as worse o well Im goin to sleep. The things we do to Grow!

I usually mix it with oats, peanut butter and water, but I guess tabasco would work too.


#3

Tuna and sprite For the win woob woob !

Tuna, water (or pineapple juice), lemon juice.

Some of my clients were doing this - before I started working with them. It's old school and outdated, but it works - to na degree.

I used to wash it down with lemonade, stuff half a tin into my mouth, chew a bit, feel sick then wash it down, rinse repeat until correct amount consumed.

I don't miss it one bit, anabolic-diet-tastic.

I don't know if I could do that... or the sprite thing. I don't like watery tuna, but I'm perfectly ok with plain dry tuna. Maybe soy sauce or olive oil with it. If reduced sodium soy sauce didn't still have a crap load of sodium, I would put it on everything.

Mike Matarazzo used to have apple juice and tuna shakes.

I think blending is a good idea if your not going to chew it. Breaking the foods down (by chewing or blending) is beneficial for digestion and absorption.


#9

I read through it, thought it was pretty cool.

So I tried the diet sprite/tuna thing.
I legitimately threw up in my mouth and all over the counter. Not only did I not get my protein from the tuna, but I lost my calories from my last meal too.

F*ck my life.

i don't understand how this is a good idea at all. if you want quick protein and fats, drink a protein shake and take some fish oil pills. if you want tuna, mix it w/ half an avocado and actually enjoy it. i mean, tuna and sprite? i'll pass.


#11

tuna and sprite, that's dedication, once knew a guy that swore by peanut butter and sardines on whole wheat bread. To each his own.


#12

Hahaha, I love his reaction "Fucking hell".
Sprite with tuna?? Jesus christ!
I love tuna mixed with mayo in a sandwich.


#13

This is not what I expected theres not one post about saying how nasty or disgusting that is but you guys know we can get a little ridicilous trying to obtain our goals


#14

Hmmmmmm Tuna and avacado, sounds awsome I think I'll try it. I usually do 2 cnas and Mayo with green sliced olives and some lettuce and cheese and roasted red peppers on a sandwich. I bet replacing the Mayo with Avacado would be a delicious change.

Thanks,

feel free to add any of salt/pepper, frank's hot sauce, and black beans too. with the beans included, it's one of my favorite small meals. fats, protein, fiber, low gi carbs... nomnomnomnom


#16

Contrary to popular belief, getting in your protein for the day through disgusting means DOES NOT make you grow faster than everyone else :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

I can get a can down in 4 chugs now! Yeaaaa easy protein now!


#18

I'll second (or third) the Tuna and avocado idea.

Its really good. Smash up one big avocado with a can of tuna... basically tastes just like quacamole. I could eat guac all day urry day!

it just sucks that a can of tuna is like 89 cents and one single avocado can be like 3 bucks lol. LAME!


#19

Tuna, avacodo, cottage cheese, chopped celery on Ezekiel bread.

Exactly, sometimes I'll blend tuna - or chicken breasts that are dry - into my omelets, add some salsa and veggies and presto it's fucking delicious!
