FISH OIL

Diet including 6 fish oil capsules per day reduces hunger 2 hours after a meal

People who had lost an average of 5.9 percent of their body weight in two months while on a diet, felt more full, less hungry and had less of a desire to eat 2 hours after eating dinner when their diet included taking 6 capsules of fish oil per day which contained more than 1300 mg of omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) compared to those who ate a diet containing some seafood, but less than 260 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per day according to a new study from researchers at the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain.

Fish cuts heart attack risk

A 30-year study appearing in The New England Journal of Medicine found that men who ate eight ounces or more of fish each week had a 44 percent lower risk of dying of a heart attack than men who ate none. The study did not consider whether the subjects ate lean or fatty fish. The researchers analyzed data from the Chicago Western Electric Study, which followed 2,107 men who worked at the Western Electric Co. The average participant was overweight, ate far too much fat and cholesterol, drank a lot, smoked and got little exercise. That sounds like a lot of people I know.

Fish oil critical for dieters?

omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in fish oil, are important for dieters according Mauro Di Pasquale, M.D.

"The Omega-3?s like LNA [alpha-linolenic acid] and eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acid -- known as EPA and DHA, respectively -- are critical to anyone concerned with dieting. They increase fatty acid oxidation (burning of fat) and basal metabolic rates and lower cholesterol. Omega-3 fatty acids also provide an anabolic effect by increasing the binding of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) to skeletal muscle and improving insulin sensitivity, even on diets high in fat, which have a tendency to decrease insulin sensitivity. As well, fish oils may also have important implications for women prone to osteoporosis, since they appear to decrease calcium excretion."
