Healthy Eating Plan - Eating Seaweed
by Alan Lord
an efficient way, thus turning calories into energy and not storing them as fat.

Recent studies have now discovered the presence of alginate in seaweed. This has
the ability to flush fat from the body by amounts of more than 75%. This means that
your body will only retain 25% of the fat you consume, if you take seaweed with the
food or eat food with seaweed content.

This is very exciting news for the weight loss industry and anyone with weight loss
problems.

Seaweed is available from most Asian stores and some good supermarkets and it
can be simply included into foods that you may already be preparing. It is a simple
matter to add dried seaweed to stews and casseroles. They can be eaten as
vegetables and with salads and even dried and sprinkled on food in the place of table
salt.

Seaweed has been a regular part of Chinese and Japanese cuisine for millennia. The
health benefits have long been realised in the East and it is believed that seaweed is in
part responsible for the low incidence of obesity and cancer in that region. It is
believed that the risk of breast and ovarian cancer in particular can be lowered with
regular consumption of seaweed.

There are three well known seaweeds: Nori, Dulse and Wakame.


Known as aquaculture the farming of seaweed is prevalent in China, Korea and Japan
which make: 60%, 11% and 10% of the world's supply of seaweed, respectively.

High in omega-3 and omega-6, antioxidants, polyphenols and flavenoids, vitamins,
minerals and amino acids they are a great health food. They also contain Fucoidan
and Laminarin which have anti-biotic and anti-viral qualities.


There are many ways of including seaweed into meals and thus making them
healthy, tasty and highly nutritious. You will be surprised at how tasty seaweed
actually is, it does not taste of the ocean!

As the health and weight loss benefits of seaweed are becoming realised by people in
the west we will likely be seeing more and more people including seaweed in their
healthy eating plan.
