Seafood’s brain-boosting action is perhaps one of the lesser-known seafood health facts. But, lest we forget (pun intended), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reports that we actually have Omega-3 fatty acids to thank, yet again.

Seafood lovers, go ahead and rejoice; eating healthy seafood can help you drop pounds. The logic is pretty simple: when you replace unhealthy, high-fat, high-calorie foods with healthy seafood (which is naturally high in protein and low in calories), you fill up more quickly without piling on the pounds.
There is also a bit of psychology involved. Since seafood is a versatile culinary option, with the sky being the limit as far as recipe ideas and healthy cooking methods, you can incorporate healthy seafood into your diet without feeling deprived. Go ahead. Order some fresh seafood to make with that next meal. Seafood is a guilt-free indulgence any day.GET STARTED
