In a survey, participants who took fish oil, and took moderate exercise for 45 minutes three times per week, but did not change their normal eating habits, lost an average of 4.5lb over three months.
Lead researcher Alison Hill, an honors student in the School of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia, observed 68 overweight and obese study participants with high blood pressure and high cholesterol and divided them into four separate groups for a period of 3 months:
Group 1 - Small doses of tuna fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids)
Group 2 - Sunflower oil (much lower in omega-3 fatty acids)
Group 3 - Small doses of tuna fish oil, PLUS 3 x 45 mins. exercise a week
Group 4 - Sunflower oil, PLUS 3 x 45 mins. exercise a week

A mother’s levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids during pregnancy can impact upon childhood emotional and behavioural issues, a study has reports.
The study, published in the journal Pediatric Research, examined maternal levels of the long chained polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and omega-6 AA (arachidonic acid) alongside the 3/6 ratio in mid-pregnancy. Once the children reached the age of 6, behaviour and emotional problems were assessed using a combination of school teacher reports and parental behaviour checklists.
