How about weight or fat loss?
This is a question many clients have asked me the past few weeks, so I did some digging….

Fish Oil May Increase Metabolism:

A great way to lose weight is to increase metabolism.  

Your metabolism can be measured by your metabolic rate, which determines the number of calories you burn each day.

The higher your metabolic rate, the more calories you burn and the easier it is to lose weight and keep it off.

In a study, when healthy older women (60-76 years of age) took 3 grams of fish oil per day for 12 weeks, their metabolic rates increased by around 14%, which is the equivalent of burning an extra 187 calories per day. (NIH)

In another study, when healthy male adults took 3 grams of fish oil per day for 12 weeks, their metabolic rate increased by an average of 5.3%(NIH)

Fish Oil May Help You Lose Fat and Inches

Sometimes your weight on the scale can be misleading.

It may remain the same even if you’re gaining muscle and losing fat.

That’s why people who want to lose weight and drop fat need to be track with body fat percentages to assess their progress, rather than rely only on the scale.

For my clients, we use a highly accurate machine called a Dexa Scanner

Using body weight to track loss of body fat may also explain why some studies have shown modest effects of fish oil omega-3s on weight loss.

However, studies that use more precise measurements of fat loss often tell another story.


For Example:

 A study of 44 people reported that those given 4 grams of fish oil per day failed to lose more weight than those given a placebo.

However, the fish oil group lost 1.1 more pounds (0.5 kg) of body fat and built 1.1 more pounds (0.5 kg) of muscle than those not given fish oil (NIH)

If you want to get smaller:

Accordingly, a review of 21 studies concluded that fish oil doesn’t reduce body weight more effectively than a placebo.

However, the review showed that fish oil does reduce waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio more effectively (NIH)

Thus, fish oil may not help you lose weight per se, but it may make it easier for you to lose inches and help you go down in clothing sizes.
