Is it bad to eat 2-3 hard boiled eggs a day? I love them & eat them as a source of protein. Also eat approx 3 cans tuna a week? Is mercury a problem?

Mercury in tuna is a concern, but depends on the source of tuna and it is nor feasible to provide an opinion without testing the contents of the tuna cans. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
