The most obvious choice for all to eat and at the same time remains thin and healthy. Initial research carried out on Omega-3 fatty acids, which is a good fat found in unsaturated oils, indicates that a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids helps with weight loss.
Omega-3 seems to help regulate the body’s blood sugar levels, which helps keep hunger at bay. In the long term, it is believed that a diet rich in Omega-3 might lower the risk of diabetes and obesity.
Udo Erasmus, the world expert on oils in nutrition, says that omega-3 fatty acids help to increase our metabolic rate, thus burning more calories. He points out that while all fats are calorie-dense (9 calories per gram), calorie counting is not the decisive factor. How easily the calories are burned is more crucial.
Although more research needs to be done before we can be sure about the effect of Omega-3 on weight loss, a diet, which includes a regular supply of Omega-3, seems to have several health benefits and no known disadvantages.
Sources of Omega-3
Dark green vegetables like seaweed, broccoli, spinach and kale are a reasonable source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids if eaten regularly. Other green vegetables like spring greens, dark salad leaves, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and parsley also have reasonable amount of omega-3 fatty acids.
