Fish Oil & Exercise Keeps the Weight Off


An Australian study has determined that daily doses of fish oil containing omega-3 fats can, when combined with exercise, act as an aid to weight loss.

The study examined 68 overweight and obese people over a period of three months. They were divided into four groups: one that took fish oil but did no exercise, one that exercised (45-minute walks or running three days a week) but took no fish oil, one given both, and one given neither.

Those who both took fish oil and exercised lost an average of 4.5 pounds over the course of the study, even though they were given no dietary restrictions. None of the other groups lost any weight at all. The combination worked because the omega-3s increased fat-burning ability by improving the flow of blood to muscles during exercise.

Omega-3s have also been shown to boost brain functioning and cut the risk of stroke.

Certainly interesting, isn't it?

Dolly, about 2 weeks ago, I started taking 2 flaxseed iol tablets each day, and they contain those beneficial fish oils.

I was told that they help with your skin shrinking back after weightloss!?! Don't know how true that is but it's worth a shot!

I don't know how beneficial it was, but a weight loss program I was on a couple of years ago told me to have apple-cider vinegar (which had acids with it to help digest food) and some kind of oil, I'm sure it wasn't fish, it may have just been olive or grape-seed - to help with the skin re-firming thing. a combination of the two made a pretty good salad dressing, too!
