New research out of Japan (where Pollock is widely consumed as surimi) found that rats on a high fat diet gained up to 34% less weight when given protein from Pollock as opposed to other protein sources such as chicken and dairy. What's more, the Pollock-fed animals gained half as much visceral fathttp://www.dole.com/NutritionInstituteLanding/NI_Articles/NI_DoleDiet/NI_DoleDiet_Detail/tabid/1058/Default.aspx?contentid=11320
I saw this recently and thought “oh more tips to reduce belly fat, do we really need more?” Of course I had to try it. I’ve been having Pollock for dinner 2-3 times a week in the past month. I use various recipes-curried, Chinese, poached, baked, fried. This stuff is good, and if it helps with preventing visceral fat, I’m in.
It is believed Pollock curbed weight gain, possibly by raising levels of adiponectin,
which enhances fat burning.
What I find interesting, is that adiponectin
is the hormone believed responsible for the enhanced fat burning which results from taking Safflower Oil.

I still take my 2 tsp. daily and will never give it up. The composition of my lower body has changed considerably, as evident in some recent pictures which I compared with older ones. I am loving my new nickname 'tiny hips'.
