    herring contains roughly the same amount of fat as mackerel, it's absolutely fine as long as it fits in with your diet

    it's an oily fish, of course its going to contain fat

    grill it if you want to get rid of some of the fat

    herring - 12g fat per 100g

    mackerel - 12g fat per 100g

    ps. theres nothing wrong with fat anyway

    Well thought out, sensible, useful advice as always Stuart......

    I would encourage you to include them, but remember to eat a variety of oily fish.

    Rediculously bad advice from Stuart above

    Oily fish are to be encouraged

    Was going to post asking about kippers but searched and found this and seems as good a place as any.

    I've been buying 200g packets of kippers from Asda. Bargain at 78p a packet, usually had with wholemeal toast and a bit of salt and pepper at breakfast time after AM fasted cardio. Occasionally with a couple of eggs but usually later in the day when i do that.

    Once or twice a week for these is ok? Have cut out having any spread on the toast as the packet has a knob of butter already in it. Since i eat a lot of chicken it makes a nice change to have 200g of kippers, and around once a week i have some peppered mackerel with salad - presumably i'm getting more good fats from the kippers?

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    ASDA kippers are very salty, this may have changed since I tried them. I prefer Co-Op's: much less salt, milder flavour and less and smaller bones that this of John West (uncoloured as well).

    Had them this morning for breakfast.

    1-2x week sounds fine mate.

    Oily fish is fine any time, anywhere, every day of the week.  True, they are higher in calories than lean fish, but obviously take this into account when deciding how much to eat and with what.

    They are perfect for low carb evening meals with some salad or green veg.

    Keep a variety of fish in your diet, and use them depending on their fat content.

    I love them. Sardines and Makerels boneless and skinless.

    Its great that they don't go out of date. A good alternative to tuna and they are lovely on toast
