Did you know you can lose weight while enjoying an awesome night of fine dining? Yes, it’s called eating seafood at Salt & Barrel!
We’ll gladly show you how to shed a few pounds, all while enjoying some clams, salmon, or a nice poke bowl.
Why Seafood Helps You Lose Weight
There are several reasons why seafood can be a great metabolic catalyst.
- It’s easier to limit your caloric intake.
- Eating seafood doesn’t force you to pack on tons of calories. Even bodybuilders (those trying to ADD weight in the form of muscles) love to consume fish because it’s the most efficient way to gain protein without too many calories. Whether you want to add muscle, lose weight, or improve circulation, seafood consumption is one of the most efficient methods.
- Fish items are a great source of healthy fats.
- Always remember that it’s not the lean saturated fat that makes you fat. It’s usually junky carbs, trans fats, and other processed foods that are the culprit. Your body not only digests healthy fats better, it uses them as a more optimal fuel source.
- They pack a nice helping of protein also.
- Starvation diets rarely work, which is why we like the seafood approach. Once you consume more tuna or salmon, you’ll appreciate how satisfying they are, as well as all the extra energy you get. One of the tricks to losing weight involves getting more protein and Vitamin B-12. Fish never fails to deliver in either regard.
