I was just calculating my omega ratio and I found that because I eat 3 eggs and about 4 tablespoons of olive oil a day my omega 6 is always pushing 9,000mg... that means I would have to take 4 servings of fish oil at 2400mg just to get ahead and that isn't including all the omega 6 we get from the rest of the diet (I'd be pushing 14,000 omg6). I need some help understanding these principals. I have read all of the posts on how important it is to get to 1:1 and how fish oil is a good supplement but, Mark says nothing about a high fat diet being almost inevitably high in omega 6. I mean, it is 10X better than a processed, carb high, veg oil diet but still, high fat = high omega 6, right? How do I get to 1:1 without overdoing on supplements? Am I thinking to much? Or did I miss something?
No announcement yet.
How the heck do I get my Omega ratio down to 1:1 if the diet is so high in fat?
