    Human fat tissue omega 6 to 3?

    hey guys, i am starting intermittent fasting this week just to see how I feel on it. The other day i had a thought though. Different meats have different omega 6 to 3 ratios in the fat, so just out of curiosity what ratio does human adipose tissue have, if any?

    I was under the impression that stored body fat is saturated, not a PUFA.
    I wish I liked to eat liver.

    So was I, but even grass fed meats contain some PUFA in them so i was wondering if it was the same for human adipose tissue?

    I wonder if google does. This might not have the answer but it's the first thing that came up for me in google.

    Haha , when you intermittent fast your body uses your fat stores for fuel and it is the same using your own fat stores for calories as when you eat fat and burn it for energy, so i was just wondering if human fat that we burn has an omega 3 to 6 ratio :P.

    isn't it the consumption/storage of these omegas that causes issues? not the burning?

    or are you wanting to put the lotion in the basket?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    yea that is what i was trying figure out if there is a difference between when we eat fat and our body breaks it down into energy, and when our body uses our fat stores and breaks it down into energy.

    Avoid grain-fed humans to be on the safe side. Or if that's tricky supplement with cod liver oil.
