  • Help!! Having trouble obtaining a good Omega-6:3 ratio (

    I started using PALEOTRACK.COM and began putting in todays menu:

    2 eggs


    turkey sausage links

    1 apple

    1 TBSP almond butter

    It said my ratio was 14:1 &

    To my surprise it said Warning! You have consumed too many Omega 6 fatty acids!! Wow...I thought I did really good! Can anyone give me advice?? Does that sound accurate? How can I improve the ratio??

    Next batch of eggs you buy can be omega-3 eggs. Eat pastured/grassfed meat. Add fish oil to bring up the n3 fats.

      This^^^^plus try switching away from poultry toward grass fed ruminant meat. You can make your own sausage with ground meat and some spices. Poultry and pork tend to not have a good ratio.

        Less nut butter, more fish and red meat.

          Salmon, mackerel, sardines, cod liver oil, fish oil capsules. Eat a can of salmon every day and your blood will be so thin people will think you are on some kind of blood thinning medication.

            skip the almond butter, eat some fish
