    Flaxseed

    So anyone else use it? I heard it is the best thing around for burning fat! Im giving it a go, but only been using it for a few days, so i can't really comment on any noticable results obviously

    Um, not particularly good for fat loss, but it IS full of fiber.

    It does have SOME flax oil, but fish oil is a far superior way to get in your Omega 3.

    Bear in mind that the seeds are practically indigestible and for you to derive the benefits of the Omega-3s from them you will have to grind them.

    Weight loss occurs during a calorie deficit. Taking flax will not effect weight loss. If you end up increasing your daily calorie intake by adding the flax, it will slow weight loss.
