Fish can help you lose weight!

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

It’s true. Clever scientific people have said so!

We all know that the omega-3 rich oils in fish are very good for you - we talk about this on our website , but according to an anti-obesity study carried out by the Universty of South Australia a few years ago, these fish oils, combined with exercise can help improve the efficiency of exercise for weight loss.

Basically, volunteers who were given a diet rich in fish oil showed greater weight loss as compared to those who did not consume a fish oil diet. The conclusion was that exercise combined with the fish oil had a positive effect on the body shape and body composition of the participants.

Sooooo - as the summer months are fast approaching, and we are hoping that the weather will entice us to don rather less clothes, we at Fish Fanatics recommend you eat more fish, and do more exercise! (With advice from you doctor as appropriate of course :)).

We have some great offers still on til the end of April, including free delivery on orders over £30, so get ordering now!

Spring clean your diet …

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

salmon-steaks1Now the chocolatey indulgences of Easter are over, many people take a new look at their diets. After all - the summer holidays are just around the corner and the thought of donning the bikini or speedos can fill the bravest of hearts with fear!

The first cutback in the Spring diet is often fat. But not all fat is bad for you. To the contrary, some is very, very good for you. And vital in fact for good health.

Thankfully, there are some very tasty ways to get this healthy stuff. Oil rich fish - such as salmon, mackerel, sea bass and trout - contains Omega 3 fatty acids which is a type of polyunsaturated fat that protects the heart and circulation. This lessens the risk of heart disease by reducing blood clots and inflammation, improving blood vessel elasticity, lowering blood pressure, lowering blood fats and boosting ‘good’ cholesterol.

Omega 3 is also important in the development of the brain - in particular a baby’s brain. It is also reported that super omega 3 fatty acids can raise levels of the brain chemical serotonin and so can help to ease depression.

The list of benefits of Omega 3 go on and on. And to help you on the way, we have some great deals on our website. With free delivery on orders over £30 and organic salmon fillets now at just £4.95 (down from £7.45), there has never been a better time to start to add fish to your regular diet.
