Not only are oysters considered an aphrodisiac, they can also help you lose weight. Oysters are tasty and one of the best sources of zinc, mineral that works with the hormone leptin to regulate appetite. Studies have shown that overweight people tend to have higher levels of leptin and lower levels of zinc than people with healthy weights. A study published in the journal Life Sciences found that taking zinc supplements could increase leptin production in obese men by 142 percent! A half-dozen oysters only has 43 calories but provides 21 percent of your RDA of iron—deficiencies of which have been linked to a significant increase in fat gene expression.
