3 Healthiest Fish to Eat When You're on a Diet, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Whether you’re looking to lose a few inches from your waist or feel confident in a bathing suit this summer, it’s not always easy to stay motivated when dieting. That’s why it’s a good idea to have variation when it comes to your meals. Seafood is a popular protein source that offers a lot of flavor and nutritional benefits. Here are a few of the healthiest fish to put on your plate when dieting.

3 Nutritious Fish Options

1. Salmon

Salmon is the best type of fatty fish for weight loss and nutrition. Not only is it high in protein, which is essential for building lean muscle, but it’s also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids aid in maintaining blood pressure levels and fighting heart-related issues, such as heart disease and inflammation. Salmon is also full of vitamin A, B, and D — which improve brain health.

2. Tuna

Tuna is a popular alternative to salmon because it’s low in calories and high in protein. Both fresh and canned tuna are good options; however, it’s best to choose canned tuna in water to avoid the fats in oil-packed cans. This fish is also high in various vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which improve blood pressure and heart health.

3. Cod

seafoodCod is a lean white fish that is full of antioxidants and vitamins, including B12 and B6, that improve overall health. It’s also low in calories and high in protein, making it an ideal option for building lean muscle. Like salmon, it also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which promote cardiovascular health.
