Is sushi healthy? How to eat it and still lose weight
A lot of people believe that going out for sushi is a lighter, healthier option and a great way to eat out and still lose weight. But not all things on the menu will help you drop a pant size.
Here are a few things that will:
– Start your meal with a miso soup instead of noodle soup — This is a great place to ditch empty carbs that will only pack on the pounds.
– Order brown rice instead of white rice rolls — White rice has been bleached and stripped of it’s nutrients so when you’re body digests it, it’s immediately turned to sugar which causes your blood sugar to spike and drop. Brown rice will keep you fuller faster and longer.
– Order rolls with avocado instead of tempura — Avocado contains those healthy fats that won’t have you squeezing into your skinny jeans.
– Request low sodium soy sauce instead of regular, which can cut sodium up to 50% so you can kiss post-sushi bloating goodbye.
– And if you’ll be drinking — try sake instead of wine. Sake has a lower acidity and it doesn’t contain sulfites or the chemicals that cause hangovers. Video Rating: / 5

Sushi has become pretty mainstream by now — you can even find it at most local supermarkets. When it’s filled with omega-3 rich seafood like tuna and salmon or heart healthy avocado it’s a very healthy addition to your diet. But the health benefits of sushi can quickly decline once condiments like mayo and cream cheese enter the picture or tempura batter. A shrimp tempura roll with spicy mayo can be 500 calories and could contain more than 20 grams of fat. Another thing to be mindful of is sodium-rich soy sauce — one tablespoon has 40% of your daily recommended sodium intake. And if there are brown rice alternatives, it’s always healthier to choose brown rice over white.

How Healthy is Sushi? I went out with my friends for a sushi lunch date! I will be sharing you some tips on what to choose and what not to choose! The problem with sushi is that it has such a healthy standard attached to it but there are many rolls and dishes that are super high in calories and saturated fat. One shrimp tempura roll (fried shrimp) can have upwards of 508 calories. That’s sad since I could put down two shrimp tempura rolls on my own — yikes!
Here are some tips that can help make ordering sushi a little more healthier:
1) Steer clear of fried or battered foods, such as dumplings, tempura and spider rolls. There’s no sense in making fish unhealthy.
2) When ordering at a Japanese restaurant, look for broiled, grilled or steamed items. Typically, soup and sashimi are low in calories.
3) Keep sodium down. Use less soy sauce or request the low-sodium kind. Also note that miso is quite high in sodium.
4) Limit the extras. Mayonnaise, cream cheese and even a creamy Japanese dressing on the green salad can add significant calories to what you’re eating.
5) Avoid the feeding frenzy. Yes, there are many good sushi choices, but try to stick to one or two lower-calorie rolls. Order steamed veggies, hijiki (cooked seaweed) or oshitashi (boiled spinach with soy sauce) to fill you up.
Hopefully on your next sushi outing, you remember these tips. Thanks so much for reading & watching! Find more fitness diet tips on my FB & Twitter! Check it out!

It is the most expensive – and many would argue delicious – part of a sushi menu.
But one man’s love of sashimi nearly killed him after it led to his body becoming riddled with tapeworm.
The Chinese man had gone to his doctor complaining of stomach ache and itchy skin.
To his horror, scans revealed his entire body had been infected with tapeworm after eating too much sashimi – raw slices of fish.
Doctors believe some of the uncooked Japanese delicacy of raw meat or fish must have become contaminated.
He was treated at the Guangzhou No. 8 People’s Hospital in Guangdong Province, in eastern China.
Research has shown that eating raw or undercooked fish can lead to a variety of parasitic infections.
Ever wondered the health benefits sushi has? Well you might be surprised to know how healthy it really is. For an in depth look, check out my health blog and much more at:

In this video:
Sashimi is just sliced raw fish, sometimes dipped in sauces and sometimes served with sushi. Sushi is any food dish consisting of vinegared rice, usually served with some other toppings, but not always. It happens to often be served with various types of sea food, either cooked or raw, and perhaps even a mix of the two; but that tradition simply comes from the primary food staples of the locations where sushi originated (not Japan, by the way). Sushi can be served with just about any toppings or none at all.

Sushi can be very healthy but there are 6 Things that can sabotage your sushi that you need to watch out for….let’s dive right in
Tempura rolls = tempura is made from flour battering then frying in oil (Vegetable oil or canola oil are most commonly used and over 90 percent of canola oil is genetically modified and consist of partially hydrogenated oil (the worst type of fat, this is the oil that causes heart disease)
Cream cheese in rolls = high in fat that can clog your arteries and loaded with calories
High fat sauces (think spicy mayo or any cream based specialty sauces)
Farmed fish and fish high in toxic metals such as mercury (Seafood species that are high in mercury include king mackerel, marlin, orange roughy, shark, swordfish, tilefish, ahi tuna, and bigeye tuna)
Sushi white rice = it’s made with sugar (high glycemic)
Using Soy Sauce. Sushi is high in salt to begin with but adding soy sauce make it even higher in salt.
How to avoid the sushi pitfalls:
Don’t order tempura rolls
Swap out cream cheese with avocado
Be sure you’re eating at a quality sushi restaurant. Go somewhere that you know they have a high turnover so you know it’s fresh. If you really want to take it to the next level ask if the fish is farmed or wild caught. Eat fish known to be low in toxins (Seafood species that are low in mercury include salmon, eel, sea urchin, trout, crab and octopus)
Substitute brown rice for white rice to get more fiber and slow the sugar spike or ask for rolls to be rolled without rice all or request that your rolls contain a little less rice and more vegetables to further increase the nutrient content and make them feel more filling.
Use low sodium soy sauce or better yet don’t use soy sauce at all. Use the ginger instead to add some extra flavor and nutrients.
