Calories in Salmon Oil

When It comes to the calories in salmon oil, like other fish oils from the deep cold sea, in small amounts it is good for you. Salmon fish oil is considered one of the healthy oils, but too much of a good thing will still make you gain weight.  An average of 1 tablespoon a day when trying to lose weight should be enough.  If you are getting fats and oils from other sources you will not need this much.

To summarize:
1 tablespoon of salmon oil has 123 calories (1.25 in calorie cash™)
1 teaspoon has salmon oil has 41 calories (0.50 in calorie cash™)
1 cup of salmon oil has 1966 calories (19.75 in calorie cash™)  

For many people this (1 cups worth) is a whole days worth of calories!

One thing you will notice about this chart is that there are few vitamins and minerals left after processing the oil. Why not eat salmon and get some oil that way. The salmon will have more nutrition.  Be careful though; I know that too much fish will put the weight on you and me both.
