Seafood for Weight Loss

37

Seafood earns for itself an ideal place in weight loss programmes because of its wealth of Omega-3 fatty acids and special fish proteins. While Omega-3 fatty acids decrease the growth of fat cells, fish proteins contribute to the reduction of body fat mass (BFM). 

Seafood for Health and Beauty

  • Reduces weight. Consuming Omega-3 fish oil and combining it or following it with moderate aerobic exercises is found to speed up weight loss.
  • Stimulates fat transporting enzymes and improves blood flow to the muscles. Alternatively, it helps the body to transport stored fat to body areas where it can be used as energy during exercise.
  • Increases metabolic rate and tallies in the count of fat burned by the body. When your body is burning more fat (because the enzymes are stimulated) and you combine it with exercise, there is an increase in your intake of oxygen, and therefore an increase in your metabolic rate too. In this cycle of body processes, increased metabolic rate also means more fat is burned by your body.
  • Regulates blood sugar and insulin levels. Insulin levels drop when you consume Omega 3 oil.
  • Keeps hunger at bay.
  • Reduces the risk or seriousness of ailments commonly associated with overweight or obesity.
  • Decreases blood pressure and contributes to good cardiac health.
  • You’ll live longer and look younger as antioxidants will work to reduce free radicals.
  • Good for the eyes. Improves your vision. DHA, one of the Omega 3 fatty acids, protects the retina from macular degeneration.

Fish Facts In Diet
Seafood has fewer calories and less fat than red meat. Fish is one of the best fat-burning foods for women. In men too, low-calorie diets that include fish are found to ensure more weight loss than those without fish. Leading the trend is Europe’s Mediterranean Diet, which is now popular in the US too. It is a heart-healthy way to lose weight, while eating healthy fats, fresh and unprocessed foods and plenty of seafood.

Take Your Pick

  • Tuna contains more fatty acids and quality protein to help burn excess body fat and balance blood sugar levels. It is heart friendly.
  • Salmon is rich in natural astaxanthin and unsaturated fatty acids, which increases HDL and decreases LDL. It helps improve cardiovascular functions, controls cholesterol, burns fat and ensures healthy weight loss.
  • Sardines are the best as they contain very high amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Caution!

  • Too much fish oil can be harmful, as fish contains high levels of methylmercury, a metal. It is so in larger fish, mackerel in particular, as they feed on smaller fishes which contain the metal. Other metals found in fish include lead, nickel, arsenic and cadmium. All of them are poisonous, in varying degrees.
  • Fish must be cooked thoroughly and correctly, whatever be its kind. If weight loss is your aim, seafood has to be grilled, baked, steamed, boiled or broiled. Eating fish prepared incorrectly can only add calories. For example, frying or serving fish in heavy sauces does nothing but add on calories.
