This delicious take on salmon will fill you up while packing a serious nutritional punch—it’s perfect for those on a diet or working with weight loss products. Our medical weight loss doctor recommends eating a diet rich in high quality, lean protein such as salmon, as it helps our bodies build the lean muscle mass we need when we’re on a diet.
In addition to its lean protein content, salmon is loaded with the most beneficial omega-3 fats that occur naturally in fish, including eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). These types of fat help fill us up and stave off hunger pangs while contributing to a healthy cardiovascular system. In addition, salmon is packed with other beneficial nutrients including vitamin B212, selenium and potassium—you can see why our medical weight loss doctor approves of a diet that incorporates salmon.
Radishes are an ideal choice for those on diets or working with weight loss products because they’re high in fiber, which keeps our stomach feeling full longer, and low in digestible carbohydrates and on the glycemic index. Radishes are also rich in vitamin C, which boosts our immune systems, and are a good source of phosphorus and zinc. Fennels is also an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber.
