Fish can be a great source of protein and healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. If you want to add fish to your diet, it can be overwhelming to figure out what’s the best fish to eat every day!
Continue reading for the three HEALTHIEST fish to eat every day for weight loss.
The Healthiest Fish to Eat Every Day for Weight Loss
If you want to lose weight, your top 3 choices for a healthy fish to eat daily are Alaska wild-caught salmon (fresh, frozen, or canned), Halibut, and sardines.
1. Alaska Wild-Caught Salmon – Great Fish to Eat Daily
Wild-caught salmon has fewer than 250 calories per 3.5 oz serving, more than 25 grams of protein, and more than 1500 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids daily. Salmon is one of the healthiest fish options possible!
Plus, it’s low in mercury.
Buying Fish at Walmart: Walmart gets bad reviews for its wild-caught pink salmon. Don’t buy salmon from Walmart! If you do all your shopping at Walmart, stick to the Wild Planet Wild Alaska Sockeye Salmon in a 6 ounce can. That’s one of the healthiest fish options to buy at Walmart.
You can also buy wild-caught frozen sockeye salmon filets from Whole Foods.
2. Mahi Mahi – Super Healthy and Lean Fish for Every Day
Mahi Mahi is one of the leanest protein sources you can find. Six ounces of Mahi Mahi only have 1.5 grams of fat and more than 30 grams of protein! Plus, Mahi Mahi is an excellent source of Vitamin B, potassium, and selenium.
3. Sardines for Weight Loss
Sardines are a convenient, easy way to get healthy Omega-3 fatty acids (and protein!) daily.
Canned sardines don’t require an oven, a frying pan, or any preparation time spent in the kitchen!
You can easily keep sardines in your desk at work for lunch, making them a perfect choice for a fish you can eat every day and on-the-go.
Buying Tip for Sardines: How tasty sardines are depends heavily on which brand (and what kind!) of sardines you buy. I love the Season Sardines in pure olive oil. If you aren’t used to eating sardines, I highly recommend you buy the boneless and skinless sardines.
More Healthy Fish to Eat
Other types of fish that top the list of “most healthy” include herring, tuna, and mackerel. You can find these fish at grocery stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.
- Tuna: Buy from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods (frozen or canned)
- Mackerel: Buy from Whole Foods
Halibut is high in niacin, selenium, and magnesium. Halibut is very lean, making it an excellent choice for weight loss. It doesn’t have as much healthy omega-3 fatty acids as salmon, so make sure to take an Omega-3 fatty acid supplement if you are sticking to halibut for your daily protein source.
