Fish or Meat - What's Better?
Fish along with vegetables can be called the queen of any diet table!  Marine fish reach with a number of vitamins and minerals: b vitamins, vitamins A, D, iodine, phosphorus, manganese, potassium, magnesium, sodium, fluoride, copper, iron, zinc. And the most valuable is the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. It is all our body is sorely lacking. Without this, all to lose weight and be healthy is almost impossible!

Fish is a source of proteinFish Fish along with meat and dairy products is a protein product. However, the fish protein contains less fiber, it is more "gentle" and therefore is absorbed much better. Fish protein — by 98%, meat — 88%. In addition, it takes much less time for the body to digest the protein of fish.

Fish protein is combined with any foods
We talked about the fact that protein and carbohydrate food should be consumed separatelyfor weight loss and recovery of digestive organs. In other words, meat should be eaten with vegetables and without a carbohydrate garnish, and cereals and flour products without meat. However, fish is an exception to the rule. You can eat it with any carbohydrate food: pasta, buckwheat, rice, potatoes,  lentils, peas, beans, chickpeas (foods with a high content of vegetable protein). It's all about the fat contained in the fish — omega-3 and omega-6.

These unsaturated fatty acids predominate in vegetable fats. And carbohydrates are combined with vegetable fats. In this combination, they are easily digested and do not cause obesity. That's why you can safely eat fish with garnish. However, do not forget that this meal should not be animal fats. If you are just beginning to separate protein and carbohydrate food, it is fish that will help you gradually give up the usual combination of meat and garnish.
