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.
