Flaxseed Oil: Eating Flaxseed will not cause weight loss in and of its self. One tablespoon has 120 calories. It can be an healthy alternative to taking in other types of fat while trying to lose weight. This is because you can consume it's polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fats instead of saturated fat and trans fats.
