    I just ran out of Fish Oil last week, and got a new bottle (different brand) on Friday. Today was my first day of using it on a workout day. Once I started to sweat, I smelled a faint fish order. I was thinking wtf... but then realized it was probably me.

    Does this happen to any of you when you sweat while working out, exercising, etc? It didn't happen before with the last brand I had :dunno:

    It didn't happen with the old brand though, that's what I don't get. I just got a different brand because there was "30% more for free!":o

    It was fucking terrible, anyway to solve this problem? Besides not taking them.

    how much of this shit do you guys take a day? I've seen people say like 8 pills :ugh:

    I take 1 pill twice a day, that's plenty. I eat some fish at leat 2-3 days a week.

    Christ... I couldn't imagine the smell then, 8 a day :ugh:

    I take one with every meal... but usually I just take 2 in the morning and one with dinner. Sometimes I take an extra before bed, at most 4 a day.

    Yes, in general, fish > flax. Difference between omega 3 and omega 6. Screw the flax, take the fish.

    I was using Spring Valley and didn't have the problem, and then I was at K-Mart one day on lunch break and realized I was out and got 'Nature's Bounty' brand. AUGH... hopefully it was just once maybe, guess I'll find out tomorrow.
