Default Re: How to Optimize Fat Efficiency in the Diet Part II - Essential Fats

This is a great question I would also like to know lol. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The optimal dosage of omega 3 fats, to my knowledge, has not been determined.

Just as a thought, one side effect I have heard from having too much fish oil, is that it can thin your blood too much, and increase bleading. This is because it blocks sticky platelets. I think including some omega 6 fats in your diet will help balance this issue, however.

Well, the point of optimizing nutrient efficiency is that you don't need as much fish oil! So I would at least cut your dosage in half. And I would bet you would get the same, if not greater benefits, AND lose more fat, due to less calories. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Two tablespoons sounds great to me.
