Does mackerel cause weight gain? How it affects your diet?

Big number of calories in mackerel puts this product in a group of high calorific from fish category. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific fish, mackerel seems not to be a good choice. You can find something better among other fish.

This is a lot but you can also easily find more calorific products. More calories we can find in such fish as salmon or atlantic salmon.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If mackerel contains nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
