View Full Version : Flax and Whey question

I've seen ref made to Flax and Whey in peoples daily diet. Why do you need flax seed oil and whey protien. Since I'm trying to drop 60 lbs, do I need to add these to my diet.

Rygel...I see you are making friends :)

I prefer fish oil to flax.

It's for the EFAs. I take 10g fish oil daily.

You might not need whey - it's just supplemental fast protein.

LOL- just happened to read your post! Ya im tryin to get too much figured out all at once. but i see it will all take me some time. The main thing is working at making this all part of my normally lazy after work night. Im really trying to read what i can in the past forums so i dont get the old "use the search" button!
As a comment on your post i got the fish oil due to i add it to my shake or when i eat tuna. I have had acid reflux really bad and it scarred my esophagus to the point i cant swollow a med to large pill. So i have to either crush them up or as with the fish oil i just pop it and mix it in.I dont really taste it if i mix it with my fish. Im kinda scared to find out what flax taste like so will probally wtick with the fish oil!lol.
