Sushi itself is not harmful. However, it’s the various ingredients and additives in sushi that cause the main problem. A lot of rolls nowadays contain mayonnaise, cream cheese, sauces, and other controversial products that increase the nutritional value of sushi and make a random set of rolls worth a whole day’s calorie intake. To avoid weight problems opt for simple rolls with salmon or go for sashimi.
4. Farm-bred fish
This problem concerns sushi as well. Wild fish is a rich source of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. But its content is highly dependent on what the fish eats. Unfortunately, the fish we buy at supermarkets doesn’t usually come from the ocean, but from farms. Therefore, not only do they lack healthy nutrients, but they also contain chemical additives that farmers use to make them grow faster.
Try to find a reliable source of fresh fish in your town and don’t hesitate to ask where those sushi chefs buy the fish that is wrapped up in your Philadelphia roll.
5. Fat-free foods
in the last century, a fat-free diet was a boom. Until nutritionists realized that manufacturers started to replace healthy fats with processed sugar in order to maintain the natural flavor of the product. So, instead of having what seemed like a healthy snack, you were literally consuming a disguised sugar bomb. Now experts recommend opting for dairy items that are rich in protein and healthy fats, like cottage cheese or Greek yogurt, which don’t contain any processed sugar.
