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

    Extremely hight number of calories in shrimp puts this product at the top of hight calorific seafood. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific seafood, shrimp seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other seafood.

    It is hard to find product with higher calories count in seafood. Similar energy amount have only such products as scallops, lobster tails or mussels.

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