    Fish Oil gels I have say take 1-2 gels with meals up to 3 times a day.

    Flax Seed Oil say take 1-3 gels daily with meals.

    Do you think its a big deal if I take 1 Fish Oil with every main meal, which would equal 4 or 5 at the end of a day, and 1 Flax Seed gel with every meal?

    I wouldn't think so, but I just want to run it by F&N

    Just taking the flax until it runs out, have about 20 or so gels left in there...just started taking fish oil so I figured I would just finish off the rest of the flax seed gels :dunno:

    should I not?

    Just wondering. For omega 3's you're better off with the fish oil.

    Cool, scared me for a second :noes: lol.

    Yah, I don't plan on buying more Flax Seed oil...and this fish oil bottle is new so that should be good.

    Thanks for the answer :wavey:

    so how many grams should I be taking?

    I take about 6-8 a day, so we're talking like 1800-2400mg

    A lot of the oil in fish oil pills isn't omega-3, you need to look at the back of the bottle

    why not drop the stupid fish oil caps and jsut eat some damn fish?? that way you can drop that extra whey shake or whatever you take.

    wild salmon has 20g pro / 4g fat
    ranched = 20g p / 10-12g f

    forelean (sp?) filet:
    25g p / 4.5g fat

    both fish can come in smoked packages..

    I can't afford to eat 9oz of wild salmon every day to get my omega 3 quota

    Would get bored if it fast too. Why even take in a "better" protein if you're not trying to keep muscle? Nothing wrong with whey in my book.

    I throw some flax oil in my shake and take 4 fish oil pills throughout the day. Seems like enough. :dunno:

    What the crap? I buy 270 .5mg omega 3 per capsule for 12 dollars.

    16 oz of salmon costs me 5 or more.

    I'll eat my hormone filled chicken and fish less often and save my money
