So interesting Tony! So, no flax oil either? Hmmm. I typically go for ground flax over oil so I can get the fiber. I wonder if that matters...

Anyway, I guess it's really about experimenting at the end of the day.

Just out of curiosity - since you did take fish and flax oil for so long, have you noticed any other changes now that you're off them?

Ive not noticed anything major since going 'cold turkey' to be honest, too early to ascertain changes in body fat.
As a side point, I used to notice that when i whan away on holiday(and had no omega 3 oil) that ive have less acne, but assumed this was due to lower stress levels.
I also used to grind flax, but i became suspicious that it too might provoke acne(lectins perhaps? i dont think thats been studied), but dont hold me to this! I do take hemp protein powder now and it works well for me.

I'll probably add back the fish oil in 2 weeks time and see if anything erupts!
