The Tilapia is native to the Nile and North America but is farmed throughout Asia, Canada, Ecuador and the United States.  It has been well documented throughout history in its health benefits ranging from weight loss to growth and development. Tilapia is a very mild fish and offers very little if any "fish" flavor. It is probably for that reason that many people prefer this flaky white fish over so many others. Prepared healthy and properly, the benefits are numerous.

1. The Weight Loss Factor

Everyone loves to hear weight loss associated with food and this one is no exception. Tilapia is low in calories and fats and is often a go-to "diet" food. Naturally high in proteins, it replenishes the body's necessary nutrients and allows it to function properly.  In one 4oz serving, you will enjoy 29.5 grams of protein. That is more than half of your day's protein. We are not saying forget about the stair-stepper, but you are onto a good thing here if you are looking for a healthier body with leaner muscles.
