Maybe some of you can help with a small query. On a previous diet/health eating plan a number of years ago we were encouraged to eat a portion of oily fish twice a week. I really enjoy mackerel but when I add it to salad the calorie count is huge (over 350 calories for a small portion). For my height/weight I am aiming for a 1200 calorie a day target but on the days that I have mackerel I struggle to stick within this without having any additional snacks/treats. Are the benefits of eating oily fish outweighed by the high calorific value?
