When it comes to staying healthy, there’s one food we should all be eating more of – and that’s fish! It’s one of nature’s superfoods and is surprisingly simple to cook.
Fish helps to develop a healthy body, for people of all ages, from teenagers to expectant mothers, and people of more mature years.
There are three types of fish: oily fish, white fish and shellfish and health experts recommend that everyone should enjoy at least two servings of fish a week, one of which should be an oil-rich variety such as salmon.
White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein.
Oily fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, or the “good” fats, essential to brain development and overall health.
Since the human body can’t make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet.
Fuel and Fish:
Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of vitamins and minerals which are essential to maintain good health and a good diet can help you achieve the best fitness and sports results. Many athletes have diets rich in fish and shellfish and the reason is quite simple – fish is a rich source of low calorie, lean protein which is great for promoting muscle growth.
Fitness and Fish:
Whether you’re a complete beginner, exercise regularly or are training for a specific event such as a marathon or triathlon, it’s essential to give your body the food it needs to perform at its absolute best. And fish can play an important part in this.
Weightloss and Fish:
The good news is, exercising regularly and eating a balanced, nutritious diet can help us manage our weight. And better still experts say this doesn’t mean doing punishing workouts in the gym or following extreme or faddy diets. Instead, they say making little changes to our diet and exercise habits can make big differences when it comes to our waistlines. And one of the easiest things we can do is eat more – rather than less – of one of the nation’s favourite foods; fish!
Consuming fish rich in Omega 3 aids in muscle building and post exercise recovery by providing the body with essential fatty acid DHA, reducing inflammation and muscle soreness in the body. Other health benefits include
- help maintain cardiovascular health by playing a role in the regulation of blood clotting and vessel constriction;
- are important for prenatal and postnatal neurological development;
- may reduce tissue inflammation and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis;
- may play a beneficial role in cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), reducing depression and halting mental decline in older people.
Why men should eat more fish:
Fish plays an important role in taking care of a couple of important body parts – your brain and your tackle. It’s rich in essential fats, which make up 20 – 30% of the weight of your brain and it’s a fantastic source of minerals such as zinc and vitamin E, needed for healthy sperm. It’s also low in saturated fat which is great news for your arteries and heart. Not forgetting calcium which aids strong bones and good muscle function.
