Eat More Seafood
The benefits of a diet rich in seafood are impressive. Research has also shown that people who eat at least two servings of seafood a week have lower rates of heart disease than those who eat less. In fact the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends eating at least 8 oz. of a variety of fish each week – such as light meat tuna, salmon or shellfish.
