    I buy tuna packed in water because I've read that the oil they use is either cottonseed oil or soybean oil. I think it usually just says vegetable oil. Sardines, I get either in olive oil or mustard.

    Get the tuna packed in water. You can then add healthy fats to it of your choosing.

    The tuna and sardines I see at Whole Foods are normally packaged in either olive oil or water. I still select the cans in pure water and add my own oils into the mix after if needed.

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

    For tuna, I buy it in spring water. However, the sardines say olive oil so I do that, but now on second thought maybe I should just add my own olive oil so I know for sure, but it does taste and look olive oil. I prefer the Crown Prince brand for sardines. Yum!!

    The tuna I buy at WF has no oil or water in it at all. When I do buy another brand, I buy it in water and add my own fats. I do buy Crown Prince sardines in olive oil. They're fine.
