    I think it is generally recommended to supplement with fish oil if you are not regularly eating seafood. I take one every day; I try to eat as much seafood as possible, but the good stuff can be a little pricey here in MN...

    I am a newbie here as well but thought I would chime in and say that I take a double dose of fish oil daily to offset the omega 6s3 in my diet. You can use Paleotrack to see which foods have the most omega 6s.

    first off, that ratio is not that bad. second, skip the fish oil, and remove some of the O6 if you're worried about it. the almonds - make 'em macadamia. and eat some fish.
