Eat Seafood, See Weight Loss: Recent Study Finds Another Reason to Eat Seafood for a Fit Lifestyle
Date:9/5/2007

WASHINGTON, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Recent news reports confirm that obesity rates continued to climb in over 30 states in 2006, so it might be surprising to learn that there are some foods Americans need to eat more of. Currently only 20 percent of the general population and 18 percent of pregnant moms are eating two weekly servings of seafood as recommended by experts, including the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Dietetic Association (ADA). More people might dive in to seafood if they knew that in addition to being low in fat and high in protein, fish contains other components that may boost weight loss.

A study published recently in the International Journal of Obesity finds that in young adult men, a low-calorie diet that includes fish results in slightly more weight loss than a similar low-calorie diet without fish. The study is part of SEAFOODplus, a large multicenter project sponsored by the European Union to explore the benefits of seafood. Researchers think seafood can enhance weight loss because of the omega-3 fatty acids, which may decrease growth of fat cells, and special fish proteins, which may reduce body fat mass.

"Seafood is a smart choice not only for a fit lifestyle, but a busy schedule. Many people don't know that seafood is quick and easy to prepare and that it is also inexpensive. There are many new products on the market like flavored canned and pouched tuna, flash frozen shrimp that cooks up in minutes and pre-marinated fresh tilapia fillets that come ready to throw on the grill," said Jennifer Wilmes, MS, nutritionist with The National Fisheries Institute.

Identifying healthy foods that people enjoy eating is a high priority. In certain parts of the country, over 30 percent of adults and 20 percent of children are obese. Overweight people have an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and many other serious health problems. In addition to helping with weight control, a 2006 study from the Harvard School of Public Health shows that eating fish twice a week reduces risk of dying of a heart attack by 36 percent.

For more than 60 years, the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) and its members have provided American families with the variety of sustainable seafood essential to a healthy diet. For more information visit http://www.AboutSeafood.com.
