    Quick question, since im starting to calorie count I notice all my vegtables have like an assload of sodium in them. Is there anything wrong with getting that much sodium? I was thinking about just eating veggies for lunch other than a can of Tuna but I dont know how all the sodium would affect me.


    Also it seems like my tuna has alot of fat in it compared to the protein. Like there is 13 g of protein per serving of tuna. 2.5 servings in a can, but there is also like 8 g of fat. WTF is this normal or do I need to buy higher quality tuna?

    Are these vegetables canned?

    The fat content in the tuna is very high. What kind do you have?

    Yes they veggies are canned, and the Tuna is a generic brand called " Chunk light tuna "

    I fail to see anything light about it.

    You can still eat it, it's not poisonous or anything. I'd recommend eating that and just getting better stuff next time.
