Dear Taryn
Most fish don't have a high energy content (e.g. salmon provides 140 cal or 588 kJ per 100g) and boiled rice only contains 129 cal or 539 kJ/100g) and sushi meals use very small portions, so you can have sushi as a meal when slimming. Just keep in mind that all raw fish contains an antinutrient that interferes with the uptake of vit B1 or thiamin, so don't overdo your intake of raw fish.
