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

I am definately going to get the fish oil from NEnutrition for my omega 3's.

I eat a lot of nuts, planters heart healthy mix (peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, pistaccios, almonds, and pecans, I believe). I am on a cut type diet. They're easily portable. I know this isn't the best choice, but once I lose the initial 10-20 lb, I'll go hardcore and eliminate them and replace them with ideal foods. however, for the mean time, should I suppelemt with omega 6's also? I don't want to throw off the balance. Or am I crazy and do nuts not have many omega 6's?

Actually, I typically follow a bodybuilding cut style diet, lots of meats, veggies, whole grain breads, wild rice, sweet potato, with the addition of nuts and fruit. I was wondering if I should still supplement with omega 6.

but as bodybuilders does our diet really fall under the catergory of standard western? what is it in the diet that does this, which foods? is it processed foods like chips, cookies, processed everything or straight up FOOD like we eat, meats, veggies, whole grains, etc?

Also, when farmers feed corn and soybeans (instead of grass) to the animals we eat, their tissues become full of omega-6s at the expense of omega-3s. Eggs from chickens fed corn, for instance, have one-tenth the omega-3s in them as eggs from free-range chickens that eat greens and bugs.

this has been mentioned in several sources. but thats the only thing I know for sure in the the bber's diet that is saturated with omega 6s. think that alone will provide adequate omega6s if u get most of your protein from nonfish meats.

Check out this video from Udo - http://www.videoclipstream.com/t-v/udo/videowindow.html

He addresses conversion rates a little bit, but mostly does not like fish oil because of the way they are processed. So omega 3 from a seed is the healthiest way to consume it.

And here is an article pertaining to fish oil vs. plant oil - http://www.vegetarian.org.uk/factshe...hfactsheet.pdf

It does not deal with conversion rates so when it says things like plant oil contains much more omega 3 then fish oil, it isn't taking into account what kind of fatty acid. So it is basically about the health concerns of fish oil.

What do you guys think about this?

I have been spending too much time studying chemistry, physics , microbiology and memorizing every amino acid and their chemical structure!!! I miss researching my interests like this topic!

haha! That is awesome. I am in the same boat as you. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I often miss out on some great stuff on account of my studies...but it's all good. We're learning either way.

I listed the omega 3 supplement I am using up above (from netrition).

For omega 6's, I have been using a "super omega 6 borage oil " from vitamin Shop. It has something like 300 mg of GLA per gram.

Thanks for the link!

Hey Venom! I was wondering if this regiment has changed since the preceding post. Have you come across any new products or research pointing you in a new direction?

Insights from others would be appreciated as well!

Nah, my essential fat intake is pretty much the same.
