You will need only eight ingredients to make an easy-to-cook delicious tuna pasta dish that suits your balanced meal plan. And you will be surprised by how nutritious these ingredients are! Tuna is lean meat. It has a relatively high protein content but low calorie, which means it stays full longer and does not allow you to overeat.
☝️ One study shows that teens who regularly ate lean fish, such as tuna, lost an average of two pounds more weight for several weeks than the control group who did not eat fish. Also, tuna contains amino acids. Your body uses them to build muscle tissue. And tomatoes 🍅? These vegetables help you create that calorie deficit required to lose weight!
