A diet plan could be improved drastically by taking fish oil every morning if experts are to be believed.
Various studies have found a link between taking the oil and significant changes to the metabolism, which are likely to boost weight loss.
One study found that taking fish oil could burn the equivalent of 187 calories a day. That is the same as two and half minutes of intense burpees.
The study found that older women who took Omega-3 Fatty acids for 12 weeks had an “increased metabolic rate and fat oxidation at rest and during exercise, decreased resting and exercise heart rate and increased lean mass and physical function.”
The older women’s metabolisms were boosted by 14 per cent, or 187 calories a day.
Another study found that fish oil in young adults raised metabolisms by 3.8 per cent if taken for 12 weeks.
One more 12-week study showed that three grams of fish oil a day increased the metabolism by 5.3 per cent.
In 2009 a study published in Clinical Science found that mice who had Omega-3 fatty acid supplements with a high fat diet had less body fat than those who didn’t – as well as lower cholesterol.
The NHS said: “Oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines are said to help against cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, age-related vision loss and dementia.
“It’s a good source of vitamin D, protein, some B vitamins and selenium. It’s also a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, a type of fat that is good for our health.”
Another early morning diet tip involves eating a food that is high in protein for breakfast – mushrooms.
The mushrooms make dieters feel fuller for longer, and are just as filling as meat, according to scientists.
One study, in particular, found that those who replaced red meat with mushrooms for a year lost half a stone.

A recent study in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism has discovered nuts could help slimmers lose weight.
Walnuts, in particular, were highlighted for their weight loss benefits.
