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.
