But if I take a fish oil supplement, I'm back in the healthy range at 2:1. So why not supplement? I can't necessarily eat fish every day (I'm pregnant) and it seems like the best way to go. Not that I'm in to just popping a pill, but it seems like keeping that ratio in the healthy range is a serious challenge.
Your regular day might show a ratio of 15:1 but its a bit misleading. The ratio looks bad because there is hardly any n3 in there. But its still a lot better than someone eating a ton of nuts/PUFa's and having to supplement to get to a 15:1 ratio. I agree that supplementing with a good cod liver oil or fish oil isn't too bad especially if you are pregnant and have concerns.
