Pick your protein wisely: a joint Swiss and South African study review published in the journal Obesity Reviews suggests eating fish can help you shed weight.
People who ate fish regularly or took fish-oil supplements every day lost over half a kilo more over 2-3 months than those who went fish free.
They also shaved nearly half a point more off their body-fat percentage. According to study author Dr Nicole Bender, the omega 3 fatty acids in fish have anti-inflammatory effects that can boost weight loss.
Aim for two servings a week of fatty fish, such as salmon.
