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.

Burn more calories by increasing the time you spend exercising and by adding weights. Increase a little at a time. You did not gain this weight over night, you won't lose it overnight either. 252
