In one study, healthy people on a weight loss diet consumed either fewer than 0.3 grams or more than 1.3 grams of fish oil omega-3s per day.
The high-fish-oil group reported feeling significantly fuller up to two hours after a meal.
However, these effects have not been consistent across different studies.
For instance, in another small study, healthy adults not following a weight loss diet were given either five grams of fish oil or a placebo each day.
Exercise also plays a key role in combating visceral fat and the frequency and duration is what counts.
According to Harvard Health, you should engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity most days, such as brisk walking or bicycling at a casual pace.
Studies have shown that you can help trim visceral fat or prevent its growth with both aerobic activity (such as brisk walking) and strength training (exercising with weights), reports the health body.
It adds: “Spot exercises, such as sit-ups, can tighten abdominal muscles but won’t get at visceral fat.”
