Does salmon make you fat and how it affect your weight?

High count of calories in salmon 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, salmon 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. It can be for example or atlantic salmon.

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