  • Your allowed to eat fish 2 times a week. Your not supposed to eat more than that because of mercury

  • Depends on the type of fish and where the fish is from. You have to watch the mercury levels in the fish.

  • No swordfish, no shark, no sushi,you can eat the California role though it has no raw fish . Tuna from a can is fine, but i think fresh tuna is to be eaten in moderation.
