Wild vs Farmed Raised Fish

Adults with high a marker for Type 1 diabetes and low omega-3 levels have a more than fourfold higher risk of autoimmune diabetes.
Individuals who ate one or more servings of fatty fish per week have a 49% reduced risk of diabetes.
Only fatty, cold-water fish contain significant amounts of omega-3 fats. Examples include wild-caught Alaskan salmon, sardines, anchovies, mackerel and herring. Farmed salmon is among the most toxic foods available and is best avoided.
Farmed salmon also has the nutritional drawbacks of containing only half the omega-3 of wild salmon and four to eight times less vitamin D, while having more than 5.5 times the amount of harmful omega-6.
Processed vegetable oils are primary source of omega-6 linoleic acid (LA), but animal foods such as farmed salmon also contain high amounts of it, thanks to the fact that the animals are fed LA-rich grains. Excessive amounts of LA play a role in most chronic diseases, especially heart disease.

Well I’m here to say, forget all those New Year’s intentions! That’s right, just chuck ‘em.

Instead of a list of “resolutions,” here is a 5-step plan you can apply to what you really want to accomplish in 2021:  

  1. Choose an Action, Not a Goal

Don’t set a goal to “lose weight.” Instead, create a list of actions you can take, like “Only one dessert item per week” or “Take a short walk every day.”  Or from a business building perspective - instead of setting a goal to make more money, ask yourself “what actions need to be taken to ensure that I double my profits in the upcoming year?”.  

  1. Create a Habit Loop

We know that whatever becomes a habit, sticks. (Just try breaking an old one and you’ll see what I mean!) Habits are formed by setting up “cues'' that trigger the habit, and “rewards” which anchor it. The cue can be anything from a certain time of day to an action (like opening the refrigerator). The reward Is something you enjoy that doesn’t negate the original habit (for instance, don’t reward your daily walk with a donut!)  

  1. Look Out for Obstacles

Any substantial action plan will run into challenges. Anticipating those possible difficulties in advance can be the difference between success and failure. For example, knowing that certain restaurants are more difficult on your diet than other ones and planning accordingly.

  1. Adopt a Progress Not Perfection Attitude

Getting off track is easy and doesn’t mean you’ve failed. The important thing is that you don’t use a setback as an excuse to give up entirely. (As in, “I ate 1 cookie, so I might as well finish the box.”) Take it in stride, be gentle with yourself, and get back up on the horse.

  1. One Thing at a Time

It’s tempting at the beginning of the year to want to tackle all of the things you want to change and accomplish. But studies have shown that it’s better to focus on one goal at a time. The best plan is to start with what is called a “keystone habit” – that is, a central habit that can help you create a number of other routines once it’s in place.
