Got The Munchies? This Might Be Why

Your fish-oil supplements may be making you extra hungry.
Researchers in Denmark found that folks who took fish-based
omega-3 capsules had a 20 percent increase in appetite. So should
you quit popping them? No, advises Heather R. Mangieri, RD,
a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:
"Even if you're watching your weight, don't stop taking fish-oil
supplements or eating fish- it's so beneficial for the heart." Instead,
try adding more fiber-rich foods to your meal to help you counteract
the effect.
