When you guys are bulking do you try to balance out your fats(omega 3 6 9)? Ive been trying to find a good article explaining about fats. The more i read the more confused i seem to get, can someone help me clear this up. From what ive read i you need to balance 3 and 6 in a 3 to 1 ratio but i couldnt find out y you do this. and does your percentage of omega 9 matter. also is it correct that omega 9 is monos and omega 3 and 6 is made up of polys?

I personally think ure reading to much into it. Keep your fats to 0.5g per lbm as a minimum and make sure they are healthy fats from olive oil, naturaly peanut butter etc. As i side note i take a omega 3-6-9 oil tablet a day but i havnt read into it like you are and unless ure training to be an expert and do it for a living i canot see the need to lknow the exact

Most of us get plenty of 6 and 9 if we eat healthy fats as our choices. I supplement with 10g of fish oil daily to get in the omega 3.

On a bulk or a cut, I consistently have a daily tablespoon of cold pressed virgin Olive Oil (Omega 9), 2 tablespoons of Barleans Flax Oil (Omega 3) and 12 Fish Oil (Omega 3)caplets throughout the day. I lost 35 pounds on the cut without loosing any strength on any lifts. Currently I am bulking and have gone up 40 pounds in one month on my deadlift too. The right amount and types of fats are great to loose weight with in my experience.
