We've Known It for Years!
seafood-rich diet can reduce obesity, cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (June 27, 2012) – A new study appearing in the peer-reviewed publication Journal of American Medicine (JAMA) has confirmed what Bluewater Grill has known for years: a diet rich in seafood, produce and healthy fats can reduce the risk of a number of negative health trends, including obesity, high cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
The study, entitled Effects of Dietary Composition on Energy Expenditure During Weight-Loss Maintenance, compared the effects of various diets on post-exercise energy expenditure and the reduction of negative health trends. Researchers studied 21 overweight and obese young adults at Children's Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital, both in Boston.
Of the three diets, the low-glycemic diet rich in seafood, fruit, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and healthy fats like olive oil had the most significant impact on maintaining weight loss and reducing negative health trends including obesity, cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes.

“This study is the latest evidence confirming the importance of a fish-based diet for not only maintaining healthy body weight but reversing some of America’s most negative health risks,” explained Jimmy Ulcickas, co-founder of Bluewater Grill. “Of course, the irony is that most of our regular customers in California and Arizona don’t keep coming back because our seafood is healthy. They come back because they like the freshness, taste and versatility of our menu.”
