View Full Version : stupid fish oil question

was reading builts article on fat...

Summarizing, for our mythical 150-lb lean mass individual, based on the above guidelines:

75g total dietary fat daily

• 25g saturated fat

• 25g polyunsaturated fat MAX, half from Omega-6, half from Omega-3

o 2-3g of this from the combined EPA/DHA contained in 6-10g of fish oil (37)

• The rest coming from monounsaturated fat

If 10g of your fat comes from fish oil, you’ll ensure that at least 3g of your PUFAs come from Omega-3, which will do much to improve your ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, particularly if you keep the rest of your PUFA consumption down to a dull roar

Its got me slightly confused... If i take 10g worth of fish oil for a combined 3g EPA/DHA, would that count as 10g of fat or 3g fat in my diet?

cheers sorry to be such a prick


It counts as 10g, thats cool. let this die thx
