Which Sushi Is Best For Weight Loss?

Sushi Tips

Sushi is usually pretty healthy, but you need to inform yourself if you want it to be a part of you weight-loss plan!

Not all sushi and sashimi is created equal!

So check out these 15 tips on how to choose wisely!

ORDER TUNA AND SALMON

As far as what fish to order, both Tuna and Salmon have few calories and are high in those good Omega-3 Fatty Acids!!

WASABI

"Wasabi radish is packed with antioxidants like isothiocyanates, the sharp, smelly-when-heated compounds that give cruciferous veggies like broccoli their anti-cancer punch."

NO CRUNCHY ROLLS

Fried food isn't good for you, that's a no-brainer. Skip the crunchy and tempura rolls.

STEAMED, GRILLED, OR RAW

The healthy alternative to crunchy rolls, you can even get it without rice!

VEGGIES

Get on some veggie rolls!

"Many sushi restaurants include vegetarian choices on the menu with ingredients like fresh cucumbers, avocados, and sea vegetables. Sea vegetables are also a powerful healing food full of nutrients like vitamin K, magnesium, and folate."

BROWN RICE

Much healthier than white rice:

"There are ample amounts of fiber in brown rice, which is important for maintaining healthy digestion and regular bowel movements. Brown rice is also a great source of manganese, selenium, and magnesium."

GINGER IT UP

It's not just a garnish!

"Ginger helps to boost the immune system as an effective antimicrobial and antiviral agent. It is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, copper, and manganese."

SODIUM REDUCED SOY SAUCE

Pretty much tastes the same, let's be honest here.

Probably because it isn't "low" just 25% less.

CHOP STICKS

Using chop sticks for the unskilled masters is slow, so you aren't shoveling all the food in super fast before you get a chance to figure out that you're full.

SKIP MAYO AND CREAM CHEESE

Sometimes special rolls have a mayo or cream cheese, skip it. Tradition sushi doesn't have it anyway.

SOBA

Maybe do this instead of rice, with Sashimi:

"Try dishes with soba noodles, made from the whole grain buckwheat. Soba is a higher-fiber, higher-protein alternative to traditional white rice."

CHOOSE SASHIMI OVER MAKI

The rice in your roll can add up to a cup of rice — which is an extra 200 calories. Sashimi is usually just the fish!

SOUP

Start with the usually offered soup! It fills you up, and only usually has about 75 calories.

PORTION

Fill up on other things and then don't go for multiple rolls!

Great! Now we're hungry!

Time to get some Healllllllthy Sushi!!
