Eating Fish every day?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 29, 2013 at 1:34 PM

Hi! With my terrible IBD, i have troubles eating enough Protein because my guts aren't well with meat or eggs. At this time, fish works pretty good for me. So mostly i eat tuna out of the can or smoked fish (I know, not the best options, but always buying the best fresh fish is to pricey for me). Is there anything wrong with eating fish everyday?

Sorry but this has to be unture, Germany is one of the most advanced countries on the planet, and they only have tinned tuna? No sardines? C'mon...

Atlantic Mackerel is cheaper than salmon, at least where I am. It is reasonably low in mercury.

Dan- I don't avoid it. I eat it every week. Just not every day.

He's talking about eating heavy metal ridden fish everyday; I'd say it's pretty reasnable to think of what one can get exposed to when eating the same thing all the time. With fish, the things one gets exposed to probably aren't what most people would want; it seems a reasonable point to comment on risks of heavy metal exposure when eating fish al the time...

Our entire food supply is slightly poisoned. I wouldn't avoid 99% of the fish on the market because of some toxins. Especially since our bodies have pretty good ways of detoxifying naturally.

There's got to be other canned fish, especially sardines. Also, look for mackerel, oysters, and salmon. I'd be really surprised if there was no canned salmon. Look harder.

I eat fish or shellfish every day. It's my only meat source. It is possible to buy fresh, good quality fish on a budget - you just have to compromise other stuff. I settle for cheap fruit/vegetables.

You should incorporate more variety as different fish provide different nutrients. Do some scouting. Check out various various supermarkets and fishmongers to assess the best fish for the least money. Where I live (Ireland), wild Atlantic mackerel is cheap enough.

I wouldn't eat tuna everyday, too high in mercury.

You can find deals on canned wild salmon at Costco. This is a much healthier alternative to tuna. Tuna is fine in moderation but certainly not everyday.

But I see no issue with eating fish everyday, as long as you rotate the types of fish you are eating.

I also eat at least 1 can of tuna a day, I don't think it might cause any problems, and I've never heard about any scientificial evidence with proven studies why it is bad. But of course it's better to buy fresh fish and cook it. Here people answer the question is it bad to eat fish everyday so you can also read.

For what it's worth. I believe "wild caught" means farm raised and released briefly into the "wild" to be caught. Also, I have read that canned salmon is usually wild (as opposed to wild caught) because farmed salmon doesn't can well.

Stay away from farmed fish, they are so unhealthy and UN-natural, and limit the tuna and other high mercury fish. When you do eat tuna, take an activated charcoal supplement to help "soak up" some of the toxins.

I have found frozen whiting in local grocery stores with no added stuff.
They are smaller than salmon, and thus less likely to have as much mercury in them. I have also heard wild caught fish tend to have selenium in them, which sort of neutralizes the mercury.

Frozen sardines are the cheapest form of protein where I live, tied with chicken eggs in terms of cost per gram of protein. They're relatively safe (small fish), and as far as I know not farm raised (does anyone even bother to farm sardines?)

The only thing is sardines really don't taste that great (although I like the canned sardines just fine). I personally never make them.

Any fish from the ocean or major freshwater bodies, wild or farmed, has too many heavy metals and the like to eat every day IMO. This is the unfortunate reality. The only fish I would eat every day nowadays is wild caught from small mountain lakes with no flowing tributaries, therefore no agricultural runoff. In the freshwater system pig manure and pesticides running into the small rivers is the main problem. I have access to a little trout lake like this but not the time to catch all my required fish, and so I've been trying to find a seller but with no luck so far.
