Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish, particularly salmon, help support weight loss by regulating insulin levels. Many other fish proteins also cause a calorie deficit in digestion, which stimulates the body to use stored fat as a form of energy. In fact, fish is not the only fat burning food that is found in water. Frog legs, lobster, crab, oysters, and clams are other seafood that aid the body in burning fat.
