TINNED FOOD DELIGHTS

I didn’t discover until recently that Derek Ramsey and I shared one thing in common.

We’ve been feeding ourselves Century Tuna straight from the can since college.

One of the country’s hottest celebrities today, Derek stands at five feet, ten and a half inches and weighs 175 pounds. And he’s ripped! With perfectly defined abs, strong, sculpted shoulders, toned arms and legs.

Still, he doesn’t do extreme workout to achieve this chiselled look, he maintained.

“I learned that achieving a 100 per cent fit body is 30 per cent exercise and 70 per cent diet,” Derek revealed. “That’s why it is important for me to find a source of protein that has less fat, less salt, and made from 100% pure tuna.”

Century Tuna Lite has 50% less fat and 50% less salt versus other regular flakes in oil. Aside from protein, tuna is an excellent source of important nutrients such as the minerals selenium, magnesium, and potassium; not to mention vitamin B complex and omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Omega 3 DHA is not only good for the heart; it also helps burn body fat, shrink abdominal fat cells and stop certain genes that trigger inflammation on belly fat.

Above all, Century Tuna Lite is made from 100 per cent pure tuna with no extenders, making it a delicious and healthy meal.

Resisting unhealthy food may be difficult, but Derek insists, “Every goal requires 100 per cent dedication, so don’t give up. If I can do it, then you can do it too.”

Derek is with other Century Tuna endorsers Anne Curtis, James Reid, Jessy Mendiola, Paulo Avelino and Elmo Magalona.

While one can conveniently enjoy it straight from the can, Century Tuna chefs also share a line of low-calorie nutritious recipes.

Here’s some of the all time favorites:
