How to you determine the n-3/n-6 ratio in your diet? I've heard of people who know this, and I'm wondering if there is any easy way to figure this out.

I use cron-o-meter.com. When you enter the food you eat, you can see the amount of grams for O-3 and O-6. So if I have, let's say, 1 gr of O-3 and 4 gr of O-6 for the day, I know I'm at 1:4 ratio.

I use cron-o-meter, fitday or paleotrack.com. I will, on ocassion, look at all three as sometimes one of them will get a food item a bit wrong...
