Did you know shrimp is low in calories and an excellent source of protein?
Protein aids in appetite control and helps you feel full longer. You may have heard that shrimp and other shellfish are known for being high in cholesterol. The truth is that because it is relatively low in fat, which is a greater danger to blood cholesterol than dietary cholesterol, its benefits outweigh the concerns. To give you an idea, a three-ounce serving of shrimp contains only one gram of fat! It is also a good source of Vitamin B12, which may support proper nerve function, and selenium that may prevent cell damage.
