    4 oz of tuna = 100 cals 22 gm protien 1Tbsp of Hellmann's mayo = 90 cal - add them up

    Yes, for any combination of two or more foods, the most accurate way to log is to weigh each individual component and then log them that way. Since mayo is a calorie-dense food, you'll probably want to minimize the times you're eyeballing or roughly estimating it.

    What does it say on the label of the can of tuna?
    What does it say on the label of whatever brand of mayo you used for the amount of it you ate?

    Depends on how much your using. Oil or water packed tuna. Light mayo or full fat. As others stated, it tells you on the container 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I add the tuna calories and the measured amount of mayo seperate personality.

    Different mayo and different tuna are different calories so you have to look at your can and mayo. For me my tuna is 90cal and my mayo is 20calories.

    I lived in the UK, I'm pretty sure the mayo and the tuna is in the same can. The nutritional information should be on the side.

    For me, the oil packed 2.6 oz packet of tuna is 150 calories. The dukes mayo is 100 calories for T - I usually do 0.5 T so 50 calories.

    That is 200 calories. I also add pickle relish, which has 0 calories on the label. It adds moisture without measurable calories.

    Why did someone disagree with me, I've lived in the UK, and I know they sell tuna and mayo together in a can?

    [I was not the person who disagreed.] Although it is more common in the US to "mix it together yourself", they do sell pre-mixed tuna+mayo. Called something along the lines of "tuna salad" and sold "in a pouch", the brand I tried tasted terrible!!

    It’s also far more common to mix it up yourself in the UK. Whilst you can get it premixed as a sandwich filling in both the chilled deli fridges and in single serve cans or pouches, it’s clearly marketed to the ‘lunch on the go’ sector.

    Just wanted to clear it up so nobody thought we can’t get canned tuna without mayonnaise already added here, which is how the post read originally (at least to me!)😂

    If you're making tuna salad, this is one reason I really like the recipe builder - I can weigh all the ingredients, set the serving size to 1g, and then the number of servings is the weight of the entire recipe. Then I can just log however many grams I eat of the recipe. If there are leftovers, the next time I eat it, I can just log the weight again.

    You can do it with volume too, though it's a little less precise.

    Weigh your tuna..., weigh/measure your Mayo. I don’t get it?
