'Oily' Fish Will Not Make You Fat!



Fish offers an excellent source of protein that, on average, is lower in calories than the same size serving of meat. 90 g / 3 oz of flounder = 80 calories, with 1 g fat; the same amount of lean grilled hamburger meat yields 230 calories with 16 g of fat.

More Information:

Even oily fish like salmon contains only 140 calories and 5 g fat for a 90 g / 3 oz portion.
