CLA and Fish Oil
Does anyone know what primal opinion on CLA is? What about dosage? What about taking it with fish oil.
In addition to that, I am confused about how much fish oil I should be taking. I am female, 5'8, 145 with about 19% body fat. Looking to lower my body fat and lose a few lbs. I follow primal blue print nutritionally (going into my 3rd month) with one high fat sweet cheat a week. I work out a little more intensely than recommended by PBP, but am trying to slow down.
Thanks for your help!
CLA is awesome, but I'm very hesitant to recommend taking it in pill form - commercially available supplements generally contain an isomer of CLA (t10c12) that isn't found in significant quantities in a natural human diet, and may be associated with insulin resistance. Your best bet is to just eat plenty of grass-fed ruminant meat and dairy.
