How bout you just train with more intensity. Low impact is a waste of time. The lack of variety in That diet would drive me nuts. Surely you eat some other things?
For years I had a peculiar reaction to salmon: I threw up the oil. Just the oil. Every time. In the past several years, I have been able to greatly reduce this by only eating wild salmon, which makes me think that it was the oil in the farmed... (more)

------ Question: Looking for an affordable fish oil to take. Quite confused...hoping someone knows a lot more than me on the topic. ------ Thoughts: I've seen quite a bit about fish oil being good...and bad...or... (more)
Fish oil isn't even as good as dripped oil of fish and fish has much more healthy components in it. My suggestion is to choose healthier seafood alternatives available to you and to stick with them.
What is the best fish oil out there? Is it the one the Weston Price foundation recommends? I am afraid I can't deal with fermented foods at the moment. If you found one particular brand superior to others, please recommend. Also, if there is... (more)
I'm pretty sure there are a few threads here asking almost the exact same question... I do not worry too much about brands, but recommend krill oil with astaxanthin and phosolipids.
My dad just sent me an interesting article that mentions "Omega-3 Supplements Linked To Prostate Cancer". http://www.nbcnews.com/health/fish-oils-may-raise-prostate-cancer-risks-study-confirms-6C10597283 The article goes on to say: It might... (more)
I find that every-time I take fish oil I get weird spots that I don't usually get. I mean, I usually use a cheap Walmart brand and overdose on Omega 3 cause I thought it was so good for me when I take it. But read online and some people breakout... (more)
So, yesterday I was at the market and I passed this stall that was selling monkfish livers. I'd never heard of anyone eating monkfish liver before but I thought it sounded interesting, so I bought one. I brought it home and fried it (in... (more)

I've started throwing up whenever I take fish oil supplements and it doesn't matter what form it's in (liquid vs. capsule.) I've been trying with as low as 1 g. Also, the brand and type don't seem to make a difference. I've been trying to take it... (more)
You are better off eating fish anyway, quit torturing yourself. I am a firm believer that fish oil supplements are best for those who don't want to eat much fish.
I've seen folks comment about how fish oil caused acne, and I realize cod liver oil isn't lauded by everyone as a good supplement. So you know, pre-empting all that. But stay with me here. I've had horrible acne most of my life, since the age... (more)

Brian Peskin's article below is very interesting; but I'm not sure it takes into account the pre-exisiting imbalance between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids prior to supplementation. Any thoughts would be... (more)
Hello all. A few months ago I mega-dosed on fish oil (7g a day). After 4-5 days I suddenly got the 'flu' or at least flu like symptoms with brain fog, heavy depression and so forth. It lasted for a whole two weeks and finally went away when I... (more)
First off, 7g of fish oil is not much at all. I am guessing that deep down the fish oil and your symptoms are unrelated, unless you had oil that had gotten rancid, which is easy to happen to any pufa given their chemical structure. If the oil is... (more)
I discovered a product called "crunchy anchovies" at my local Asian grocery. They small anchovies, fried in palm oil. O Bly other ingredients are salt, sugar and chili oil. Freakin' tasty!! Carb content is low, high in protein (snack... (more)
I usually take a spoonful of fish oil and a few drops of liquid vitamin D in the morning with breakfast. I don't always get a chance to eat breakfast though, so I just take a dose of fish oil and the vitamin D before running out the door. I know... (more)
I stir my fish oil, vitamin D drops into a home made yoghurt together with a raw egg yolk. That makes a very nutritious, easy to eat quickly, breakfast and gets fish oil/vitamin d 3/and biotin/choline (egg yolk) sorted. The amount of vitamin D in... (more)
So, I realize everyone is a doctor on here and all have their own diagnostic reasons for taking different levels, types of fish oil, even in different orders and such. That said, I'd like to hear your reasons for taking Fish Oil (even if it's... (more)
None. Reason #1: Fish oil tastes like butts.
Since going Paleo and supplementing with fish oil and upping my protein intake I feel I smell horrific. It's actually getting to a point where I'm becomming quite self conscious about it because it seems to encompass me. Is it due to poor quality... (more)
These fish oil packets taste fantastic - does anyone have any experience with them? They taste like a creamsickle and there are no fish burps. They seem like they would be good for people that want to give their kids fish oil, or who want to take... (more)
I stopped taking fish oil a while ago and am considering dropping seafood almost entirely from my diet. I've been eating Bumblebee Wild Alaska Pink Canned Salmon frequently, not because I really like it (it's ok), but because it's super cheap and... (more)
