    they both have the omega 3 bullshit in them. Which one is better? Also isn't the atkins diet basically what most of you guys follow? High protein(meats), Low carbs(bread, pasta etc.)

    thanks in advance

    The nutrition edu has no information whatsoever on that subject, avoid it like plague.

    What you want to get is EPA/DHA because the body can use it. ALA (another kind of omega-3 fat which comes from plant sources) isn't readily converted by the body. So don't get most of your omega-3 from plant sources (flax, flax oil, nuts, sesame oil, soy products and so on).
