    Tuna isn't so bad if it's from the tin, I think it's something to do with the levels of Mercury it contains. Most fist has a certain level of mercury but Tuna along with Marlin etc has the highest levels.

    You are allowed about 2 small cans per week though x

    yeh hollyjadebear is right it is because it contains mercury , you are allowed 2 fresh tuna steaks or 4 tins or at least that is what my mw said , i have a thing for tuna mayo and cucumber baguettes .x

    Well if you're allowed 4 of those small tins a week, thats 4days you can have tuna mayo and sweetcorn, and you can probably make 2 servings out of one tin, so basically you can have a bowl of it everyday!! :D
