Powerful FISH for Fitness

I am an avid list maker, not on my iPhone, but real paper and pen lists. My husband makes fun of me for it, and with good reason, as I have been known to complete a task not on my list, and write it down JUST so I can scratch it off! It brings me such satisfaction, I can’t help it! I also love reading lists created by others, especially those of nutrition experts. I recently came across a list ofPOWER foods by the President of Bauman College, where I received my Nutrition education. Obviously, he listed FISH as one of his favorite power foods!


Fish and fish oil: “An ounce a day cut risk of heart attacks by 50% (Murray and Pizzorno, 2005). Omega-3 fatty acids in fish can relieve symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, asthma, psoriasis, and high blood pressure. A known anti-inflammatory agent and anti-coagulant. Raises good HDL cholesterol. Lowers triglycerides. Guards against glucose intolerance and Type II diabetes. Some fish are high in antioxidants, such as selenium and coenzyme Q-10. Exhibits anti-cancer activity, especially blocking development of colon cancer and spread of breast cancer. Fish highest in omega-3 fatty acids include sardines, mackerel, herring, salmon, and tuna.” 

So many great reasons to start eating more fish! Not only is it a great protein source to fuel your workouts, but the added burst of antioxidants will work with your body and your workouts to keep you fit and healthy. Dr. Bauman mentioned salmon as a big one on his list, Sizzlefish offers a beautiful 4 ounce portion that packs a whopping 1,263 mg of that powerful nutrient, Omega-3!
