Fish oil supplements decrease hunger in obese individuals when dieting
Blood sample analysis also showed that a higher omega-3 concentration, and an improved omega-3 to omega-6 ratio were associated with higher satiety, reported the researchers. "The most important finding of this study is that subjects who eat a dinner rich in long chain omega-3 fatty acids feel less hunger and more full directly after and 2 hours after then their counterparts fed with the low long chain omega-3 fatty acids diet," wrote the authors. In other words taking fish oil supplements with meals while dieting decreases hunger. The study is published online ahead of print in the June 14th, 2008 edition of the journal Appetite.
