    I pop 2 of those a day, 4 and an aspirin if I had a hardass workout and know I'm going to be sore/inflammed/whatever.

    So much nicer than taking twice that of their regular pills...

    I take around 10 fish oil caps daily, taking 1 is pretty much a waste.

    these are high strength tho, ~700mg omega 3 vs 300 in most others (some even less)

    And you're way better off getting 300mg/day omega 3s than nothing, you're kidding right? :ugh:

    Probably, but you would have to be eating by the bottle... right now each one has what, six grams? So if you take four pills you are getting 24 grams of fat which is about 200 calories.

    You don't need to follow their recommendations.

    It's just fish oil, you'll probably be better off taking more anyway and you'll be giving them more business..win-win...

    umm... you're kidding, right?

    They're 1200mg of oil each... so like 1.2 grams, not 6. 4 pills is just under 5g, not 24g :rofl:

    They're like 10 calories each. If you're seriously concerned about and extra 40 or 50 calories, you need to end yourself.

    I use kirkland fish oils and take 20-30 per day

    what you want is the EPA/DHA part of the fish oil and it's best, imo, to get 2-3g's of that per day
