Omega (transferred from Introductions)

I don't like fish, and have given up eggs for the moment, but love walnuts. Now my question is what quantity do I consume for best results, at the moment I am just having approximately 6 - 12 a day, is this enough for the benefits or would you need to consume much more than this and if I do how does it affect weight loss?


I have Nature's own 1000mg flaxseed oil capsules. The label states each capsule contains alpha-linolenic acid (om3) 450mg, linoleic acid (om 6) 100mg, oleic acid (om 9!!) 100mg. I have started, as of today, to take three.

But I think it would be wise to put some more fish into the daily eatery plan. Sardines on toast, for brekky for eg. Tuna sanger for lunch. Grilled fish at dinner.

My kids dont generally like fish, which is a pain. I wish they did for their sake as well as mine.

There's a mix you can buy called LSA which is just ground up Linseeds (Flax), Sunflower seeds and Almonds. Supposed to be high in Omega. Mum puts a spoon on her breakky every morning. Gives a nice nutty flavour as well as being good for you.

I like the sound of that. I believe it is better to get nutrients from their natural source where possible. Will look out for it.

Sounds all right to me too, the seeds must be high in omega, because there is little or no omega 3's in almonds, that is why I have been on the walnuts.

The almonds might be for taste. And Linseed (flax) oil and LSA are best kept in the fridge and the oil should beout of sunlight in a dark coloured bottle too apparently. Something to do with preventing a breakdown of the good stuff in it.
