View Full Version : (Fat) Oil Ratio

I have Fish Oil and Flax Oil in liquid form.

1 Tsp Fish = 5g
1 Tsp Flax = 14g

Should I be taking these at a certain ratio? I know I shouldn't take over ~10g Fish Oil, so if it's a 1:1 in terms of grams, can I even take a full Tsp of Flax?

Also, I get almost all my remaining fats (as in, probably 90% ... I eat really clean) from salmon, mixed nuts, olive oil, and natty PB. Does this make a difference?

Please read Issue I of Get Built (http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=272) - I did a writeup on the whole fish oil / flax oil thing.

are you talking about the whole omega3:omega6 ratio? Built's article summarizes fats very well

as for myself,
I get about 10 g of fat from distilled fish oils (on a ketogenic type diet)

the rest I get from walnuts, olives, flax meal, meats and fish (~ 120 g)

Wow, that was dumb. I can't believe I didn't know fish and flax oil both gave omega 3's.

heh... at any rate, if I'm taking in Omega 6's/9's from other sources, do I need to eat it at any special ratio?

Did you read my column? I also wrote up an article on fats. Read those. Your questions should all be answered in there.
