I got some 1200 mg pills of fish oil. How many of those per day are the norm? I know they should count as fat in the diet.

I take six 1,000mg so you should probably take five or six of those.

Read Get Built - there are recommendations in this month's column that address this question.

Do you know how many mg combined EPA/DHA are in your capsules?

Read Get Built. (Link in my sig) - it's all answered there.

NormalDude - 8 caps will give you almost 3g combined EPA/DHA, which is what I take.
