    Well, the only way to get that ratio down is to eat even less O6. That may be hard to do, especially while eating eggs. Eating fish with your eggs seems to be the best way for me. I'm not advocating...

    It's not the amount; it's the ratio of o3 to o6. You should shoot for a 1 to 1 ratio. Try to eat more fish.

    If you look up the omega-6 level in peanuts you'll find it's an order of magnitude greater than everything else. If you care about keeping your O6 to O3 ratio in check, avoid peanuts.

    I've been both.

    Like you, I grew up skinny. When my late 30s early 40s came around the fat person reflected off a passing window would startle me. Now I'm startled by a thin reflection.
