Is Tuna Good For Diabetes

Is Tuna Good For Diabetes


Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com,
researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I’m going to answer the question, is
tuna good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you
download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping
guide (foods to eat and avoid) by clicking the link below. I am a big fish lover. I like to catch fish, eat fish, I even make
fishing lures as a hobby. So when this topic came across my desk, I
was excited. I have never fished for tuna, but I love researching
fish. As a general rule, seafood is a great choice
for those of us with diabetes. There are several reasons for this:
Most seafood is very low in the unhealthy saturated fats
What fats are in fish is unsaturated. Seafood is a great natural source of omega3
fatty acids Seafood is loaded with good protein
There are no carbs in seafood, a huge plus for those of us with diabetes As far as tuna specifically, it is also a
great source for Vitamin D But we need to be careful when choosing tuna
at the grocery store. Unless you live where you can get tuna fresh,
you are going to have to buy canned tuna and not all cans are alike. It is important that you look for tuna packed
in water if possible. Why? Because the other alternative is packed in
oil which can add fat and calories to the tuna. We must also be careful in our thoughts that
tuna and tuna salad are the same. They are not. Most tuna salads add either mayonnaise or
salad dressing that will add a lot of fat and calories. The good thing, however, is that mayonnaise
is low in carbs. So it is a balancing act. Adding a little bit of mayo to your tuna is
ok, just be careful about adding too much and make a wise choice if you are going to
make a sandwich with it. The tuna itself is a great choice, just be
careful what you add to it or how you prepare it. There are many ways to enjoy tuna. I like mine drained of the water and little
bit of sriracha. There are literally thousands of tuna recipes
out there that can be diabetes friendly. So, yes, tuna is a very good choice for someone
with diabetes. I hope this answered your question is tuna
good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management
book by clicking the link in the description box below. Let me know if you have any other diabetes
related questions. Thank you
