    ok by doing a search I see people take these anywhere from 3 to 10 a day, can someone please clarify to what is the "suggested" amount. I don't know if it matter but I am 150lbs. Also as far as I understand I have to take these after meals?

    Thanks :wavey:

    All those fish capsuls end up costing a ton. It's cheaper just to buy a bottle of fish oil. I just pour some in my mouth before I go to bed.

    there really is no suggested amount of EFA's, just make it work out to your calorie needs

    you obviously have a walmart, because every city in the world does. Go there. There's is like $4 for 90.

    I've even seen GNC have good deals on them, check in the beginning of the month usually shit is buy one get one free, or big mark downs. Get the big thing of fish oil pills, it's like $15-17 (300) and get another one free. The best option sounds like a wholesale club though

    Walmart canada's prices are double or more what they list on the US site for a LOT of stuff, despite the 1.2 exchange. Their prices are only cheap in the US. They used to be cheap when they first opened up but I haven't gone there in like 3 years because I can usually find it cheaper elsewhere.

    SteveO what do you mean "make sure it will workout with my caloric intake?" I am not cutting perse but I am trying to stay on the lean side since I want to get more definition...

    I dont understand.. are you cutting or bulking? I use fish oil pills to make my omega 3 intake higher than omega 6 intake, and also for more calorie

    well most people have a certain amount of calories they set aside for fats, carbs, and protein - you have to try to fit these into your calorie needs
