Omega 3 on the Atkins Diet

Sharon from Chicago asked: â??I just started the Akins Diet, and I was wondering if itâ??s ok to add Omega 3 to my diet. Iâ??ve heard some very good things about Omega 3 and would really like to try it. If so, what are some benefits to consuming Omega 3?â?

Sharon, it is perfectly fine to add Omega 3 to your diet. This is actually a very good idea, and, really, more people should be doing it. Omega 3 has many benefits that most people donâ??t even know about!
 

You can get Omega 3 from many places, but probably the best source is fish, especially: herring, mackerel, sardines, and tuna. But be careful; when manufacturers can tuna, most of the oil, and therefore most of the Omega 3 oil, is greatly diminished. So, if you like tuna, buy it fresh!

You can also get Omega 3 from eggs, flax seed, and certain vegetables. But since the Atkins Diet heavily limits your consumption of veggies, your best bet would be fish, eggs, or flax seed.

There are many benefits to Omega 3 that are unknown to most people. One benefit thatâ??s specifically good for you is weight loss. Although it is a fat, Omega 3 has been shown to make people actually lose weight! Studies show that people who were on a diet, lost more weight when they used fish oil instead of olive oil.

Omega 3 has been shown to prevent heart disease, cancer, depression and other common illnesses as well. Omega 3 also prevents and heals joint pain, as well as providing you with more flexibility.

Something else you may not know is that Omega 3 is essential during pregnancy. It is instrumental in the progression of your babyâ??s brain and vision development. But Omega 3 not only helps your babyâ??s brain develop, it also helps yours!

Omega 3 helps you in every stage of your life, from childhood, through adolescence and adulthood, all the way until your senior years. You should definitely be adding Omega 3 to your diet, and tell everyone else about it too. Good luck with your weight loss!
