Avoid Farmed Fish

Why to avoid farmed fish on amino dietA heart-healthy diet includes fish twice a week. Why? Fish is low in saturated fat and high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help lower levels of trigylcerides, a type of fat in the blood. They may also help lower cholesterol, slowing the growth of plaque in arteries. The best fish: salmon, tuna, trout and sardines. Also, don’t drop the filets in the deep fryer – you’ll negate the health benefits. –  American Heart Association

A word of caution! Farmed or “Fresh” Salmon is very toxic. The salmon raised in a farmed environment are packed so close together that the farmers need to use very toxic chemicals in the water to prevent disease. Many of these fish die every day. The dead fish are ground up into pellets and fed back to the other salmon. The salmon raised in these conditions are not pink or red – their flesh is grey. So they feed them artificial orange dye, which makes their flesh a pale orangey-pink color. Also, there is the problem of sea lice infestation in these salmon farms due to them being held in such unhealthy and unnatural conditions.

If you choose to eat it, your body can only handle one serving per month. You should know that the amount of toxin you put into your body from that one serving will take years to clear from your body.

Tilapia is also a toxic “farmed” fish, which means that it should not be consumed while on the Liquid Amino Diet. The toxins can cause your hormones to become unbalanced, which will slow your weight loss.
