    For those of you who drink your tuna...


    does it get easier? I thought it would, but I've been doing this for about a week and everytime I do it I have to fight not to vomit. Also is there anything that can be added to make it more tolerable taste wise without adding lots of calories? I know (or at least I heard) Mike Matarazzo added apple juice to his, but that would be a lot of sugar I don't need. Any help is much appreciated!

    Never tried V8, but I do know that tomato sauce tastes very good with tuna, so V8 might be the answer here.

    That applies to certain grains, not all foods. Liquifying in this case will have no effect on the GI.

    Why not? I thought that if you dump 50 grams of liquid tuna down the hatch it is going to hit your stomach all at once causing a slightly higher insulin spike. I mean liquid food is like pre-digested in the sense that it doesnt require us to chew. I read somewhere else that this principle was true for a chicken breast so logically I thought it woudl apply here also

    Because tuna doens't cause a significant insulin spike whether its whole or liquified. Grains cause a higher insulin spike because the kernel (blunts the response) is removed.

    Just because its hits the stomach in a liquified state doesn't have any bearing on GI.

    I don't know where you read that about chicken but its not true at all.

    I think a lot of people get hung up on this. It's a big misconception that because something can be digested faster, it must also have a bigger effect on insulin.

    Diet cola blunts the taste pretty well, but theres still the whole problem of drinking tuna chunks.
