To much sushi?
Okay, I had a date last night with a girl much to young for me, but I digress.
I wanted to get sushi, but she doesn't eat sushi anymore, because of "the mercury levels and toxic metals".
This got me thinking, I eat sushi twice a week. Is this too much?
I don't want to poison myself.
Unless I get superpowers. Superpowers trumps everything.
I really just want someone to reassure me that I can continue to eat sushi safely.

I think it partly depends upon what you're getting when you go out. Generally speaking, the bigger the fish that your protein is coming from, the more heavy metals it's flesh will contain, but if you're only eating it twice per week you should be fine. The levels aren't that high - something like 80-90% of the world's people have fish as their primary source of protein, and assuming your bi-weekly sushi trips aren't the only protein you're getting you'll be better off than the rest of those people.
If you were eating large quantities of tuna 3x daily 6 days per week I might tell you to dial it back, but as of now enjoy your sushi.
(Felt the need to chime in as I just had a massive plate of sashimi )Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.

P.S. 2 trips to Japan in the last 2 years and sushi is way better over there

Is sushi a metaphor for something more dirty?
if there is never too much sushi
The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

Was you date wearing a loose fitting shirt??? Ya know like a maternity blouse??!!??? When your pregnant the docs tell you to stay away from sushi due to the high mercury levels and toxins found in raw fish. My girlfriend almost cried when she got pregnant for that very reason!!! Just saying.....

Yikes, if she is, she will never see me again!Originally Posted by Miss Q
Just kidding. No she's not pregnant, just a little hippy chick, who thinks we have polluted the oceans beyond repair.

Try it with half of the amount of mayo and a shot of spicy brown mustard or wasabi. Really makes it alot less boring.Originally Posted by JudoJosh

I'm up to my ears in Tuna after this last fishing trip offshore. Endless sashimi!! Don't forget it must be frozen first, ppl

You may already be poisoned. You have all the signs of turning down a younger chick for pointless reasons. Listen to her stories of peace and love and polution and just nod and smile and maybe next time you'll get her sushi

never trust a hippie......

True, but she's hot, and like superpowers, hot trumps everything.Originally Posted by Bolanrox

Eating sushi twice a week isn't bad. The mercury levels in the fish really only hurt you when you overdo it on fish. If you were eating the sushi three to four times a week I would say that it would be a problem.

I eat sushi maybe 3-4 times a week. My wife is an addict, we eat out a lot, and it's easy to fit in my macros.
As far as I was aware, the mercury levels aren't an issue if you stick with fish lower on the food chain [salmon, etc.]. I avoid tuna due to potential mercury poisoning and the questionable ethics behind farming for them... and shrimp too.
