This is my first deal post, so I hope im doing it right.

This is still full price online, so I dont know if it's nationwide.

I went into my local Asda tonight (Cardiff Bay), and bought some John West Tuna Chunks in brine. They were priced on the shelf-edge-label as 50p per tin. This is 5p cheaper than the smart price tins! There wasnt anything nearby to say that this is an offer, and the label was a white one (i.e. not a yellow one like the rollbacks).

Mine done this a few weeks ago, I hope its back because this is an excellent deal and we all love tuna, I think when my asda stopped doing it the price went back to £1.30, I was shocked lol, guess thats usually why I buy the multipacks.

voted hot.

great price! cheers

Best price I've seen for Tuna in a Long time, and I've been on the lookout - this is HOT!

I don't know why but I just can't eat tuna at home, but am quite willing to eat tuna sandwiches, rolls etc from shops.

H+R added, great price for a good brand of tuna.

Bring on the tuna mayo! :thumbsup:

If this price is at the Swansea store, you have just made my day! I went into Sainsburys tonight to buy their own tuna and was shocked to see the price had gone from £0.30 a couple of months ago, to £0.55! Looks like I'll be heading to ASDA first thing in the morning!

Love tuna & pasta mixed with salad cream so will be stocking up if the offers on up here! :thumbsup:

Is tuna any good for losing weight and/or muscle building?

Could a tin of this for dinner save the pennies financially and the pounds physically?

was this price a few months ago. about time they put the price down again :thumbsup: hot

It has been over 40p per can for OL tun since before October last year.

Almost had a fight with an incompetent ASDA employee who put the sale sign next to the Tuna flakes instead of tuna chunks, bought 10 cans a month ago and ended up having to bring them all back, refunded and finding out they had sold out.

WARNING: make sure its the right can, asda employees can be stupid too.

TBH you're the stupid one if you buy that much of something and don't realise you've been charged twice as much as you should've by the time you leave the store....

Not if you smother it in salad cream.

Shame it's not the one in sunflower oil.
Infinitely nicer.

Yup, sunflower oil (while less healthy) is more appetising.

I seem to have the same problem. :thumbsup:

Recycled cat food.

Doh! I picked some up from Morrisons at 4 for £2.50 thinking that it'll be a while until Asda do them at 50p per tin again.
Proves I know squat.

this deal is in swindon north asda too! I picked some up as a treat for the cats!

I'm sure i got 6 tins for £4 a little while back at Asda but this is definately a HOT deal, thats another thing for me to do this morning and pop into asda when I'm going past it.

Rubbish.

Tuna is mostly, protein. From a 185g can, 130g will be the drained weight. Out of 130g, you should get about 30-32g of protein. Dependant on his diet, salad cream will either add needed carbs to his diet if its below maintainence, help build muscle if bulking and needing a surplus, or if too much of a surplus, add fat.

Absolutely. Tuna is a high protein, low calorie food. Ideal for muscle building and weight loss.

Just make sure you only buy the Tuna in brine (salt water) or spring water. Tuna in sunflower oil will definitely not help you lose weight!

You will build muscle with a calorie surplus. You cannot lose weight and add muscle. Its impossible. Think as food (protein, carbs & fats) as bricks. If you want to extend that house, you need more bricks than the house contains. Thus, you need to eat more than the body needs to survive (your basic metabolic rate eg your BMR).

You can lose weight on a chocolate diet, as long as your cals in, does not exceed your cals burned during a day. In theory, you could live off 4-5 bars of chocolate a day and lose weight.

I was meaning in an either/or sense. i.e. Tuna is a good food for someone looking to lose weight, or build muscle.

I expect the poster was meaning to lose fat rather than weight.

I think they mean lose fat and gain muscle simultaneously, rather than just lose weight in general.

Obviously if you're putting on muscle, which weighs more than fat, you will be putting on weight.

Gah... beat me to it Rob

You can't lose fat and gain muscle, its impossible. Losing fat needs a calorie defecit, gaining muscle needs a surplus. At the very begining of training, you may do it as the body adjusts, if you get into it long term like me (see the avi, thats me) you cannot lose fat and gain muscle. Just not possible.

Well myself and lot sof my rugby team are able to lose fat and gain muscle... must be a miracle!

Must be. Do you actually understand the principle of anabolism?

Not everyone here can be a muscletalk expert, not many people understand that a calorie defecit and a calorie surplus cannot be obtained simultaneously. Save arguing about anabolism for elsewhere with the informed papinator!!

Looking at Matt's avatar I'm siding with him on this one! :thumbsup:

Funny, cos I lost ALOT of fat last year and gained muscle too!

Screw all this muscle talk, Tuna is tasty food, and at this price i'm off to ASDA.
HOT!

anyone confirmed this is national yet - or even outside of swindon?

Course you did :thumbsup:

bodybuilding.about.com/od/…htm

The only times when both happen at peak efficiency is when the person is just a beginner who is starting bodybuilding, in which case, weight training is such a new stimulus to the body that muscle gain and fat loss happen extremely efficiently. The second case is when coming back after a period of no weight training in which case the body is just regaining muscle tissue that has been previously built. If God forbid you get the flu and couldn't train for 3 weeks, once you come back you will experience simultaneous accelerated muscle gain and fat loss.

This article is inspired by a lot of the questions people have e-mailed to me since I've had this site up. I must have answered this question 100's of times by now. The questions are usually something like "How can I gain muscle and lose fat at the same time?" or "I want to lose fat but gain muscle at the same time, how can I do it?" If you went into a gym and took a poll of what everyone's goal was, I can bet that most, if not all, would say to gain muscle and lose fat. I doubt there is anyone who just wants to lose fat, they want to gain muscle while they are at it, and visa-versa! So, is it? Is it possible to both lose fat and gain muscle at the same time? No, it is NOT possible, and I will not only tell you why its not possible, but I'll also tell you how you can do both, just not at the same time.

muscletalk.co.uk/los…spx

What you do need in order to grow muscle, is to be in calorie surplus, i.e. consume more calories than you need to maintain your weight (protein intake aside), and by doing this a little fat deposition is inevitable and nothing to worry about. Myself, I carry about 1½ stone of fat over a stage weight so I always look big and still have that shapely bodybuilder appearance rather than just 'bulk' (well, so people tell me!). This is ample fat in order to grow muscle. Holding too much fat puts you at greater risk of some diseases, including heart disease.


Suggests you are wrong. Of course you'll find places suggesting you can, but they are usually websites trying to sell you supplements.

End of the day, you can tread water all you like foks or listen to someon who knows :roll:

Went to ASDA Cannock tonight and the only offer on Tuna was 4 cans for £3.75 :?
Mind you Cannock has always been a little behind the times.
