Sushi is a versatile dish. Sushi can be enjoyed in many different ways, including sashimi, rolls and nigiri. It is usually up to you to choose which of the three types of sushi you prefer. If you’re on a diet to lose weight (or gain weight), sushi may be a good choice. Sushi may be a good, healthy option for you. Let’s discuss why sushi should be part of your meals.

Health Benefits

Sushi is a great source of omega-3 fatty acid, which are essential for bone and joint health, inflammation, skin, skin, and more. You will get plenty of protein from sushi, regardless of the fish you choose.

You can enjoy sushi with select fruits and nuts as part of a ketogenic diet.

Keto/Low-Carb Diet

You’ve probably heard of the keto diet, which has been trending on social media. Many people have adopted the keto diet to lose weight. The keto diet calls for a low intake of carbohydrates (usually less than 50g) and high amounts of fat. The body creates ketones which replace fat as an energy source. This is known as ketosis.

This is relevant to sushi. Sashimi is a great source of healthy fats and protein. Sashimi is not a good choice for ketosis. Are you not a fan? Sushi Inc. offers other keto options, including fried shrimp, chicken, beef and many more. Delicious!

Sushi is ideal for low-calorie diets.

Low-Calorie Diet

Are you watching what you eat? A piece of sushi nigiri typically has 60 to 70 calories. Substituting brown rice for white rice can reduce the calories. You can also order sashimi, instead of nigiri or rolls. Sushi Inc. offers many delicious soups and salads that are also low in calories.

For bulking, those who eat a lot of rolls will get plenty of calories.

Weight-gaining Diet

Sushi is a great choice for those who are trying to lose weight “for the gains”. While weight loss is the primary goal, not all calories can be used in the same way. Sushi contains complex carbs, as opposed to the simple carbs found at fast food restaurants and junk food. Sushi is rich in healthy fats and contains no trans or saturated fat. Our delicious rolls are a great option if you’re willing to eat a lot of calories.
