Ok, I have been trying to read up on Omega 3's, 6's and 9's. Aside from
being totally confused as to which ones I should take, and how many of each,
I have decided that I need them :) and was wondering if you experts out
there can help. The sipping oil thing is not for me, and I don't really
like protein shakes all that much. I basically eat just meat, fish and
veggies (usually pre-made salad dressing, so adding oil there is not an
option). I have been under 20 carbs a day for about 4 months. What I have
in front of me is fish oil concentrate containing EPA, 360 mg and DHA, 240
mg, and a combo of flax and evening primrose containing ALA 960 mg,
Cis-Linoleic Acid (omega 6) 1060 mg, GLA, 100 mg, and Oleic acid (omega 9)
380 mg. I take that once a day with food...don't want the dreaded fish
burps. I also have flax seeds, although I have only used them once as a
breading on fish (yuck). (for you appliance junkies out there, I did go out
and purchase a little coffee grinder just for flax seeds! My DH has been
laughing at me 'cause I only used it once.) Am I ok? on the omega part,
not the junkie part!
Thanks so much for any input!!!
ps...since doing this research, I will never, ever, ever eat hydrogenated
fat again knowingly! Euwww!
