    I agree with Joaniet. Make sure you're getting enough Omega-3 to balance your Omega-6 intake, and that you're taking a really good Omega-3; I've found that a lot of them upset my stomach, and with good reason, many have soy or soybean oil in them.

    CRON-O-Meter: Track nutrition & count calories is one that's okay. If a food you eat isn't in their database, you can google that food and then put its nutritional profile in with the "Add Food" function. It will always show up for you after that. It's a little quirky sometimes, so other posters may know of better trackers.

    May I extend my thanks to those who don't like fish/seafood everywhere - more for me!

    Also, just to gross people out a little more, I believe that the nearest land dwelling relative to things like lobster, shrimp, and crawfish is.... wait for it....

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Haha, people think im crazy for calling lobster and crab giant sea bugs. Cant stand shellfish.

    I like nutritiondata.com, has an amazing nutrient breakdown. Just ignore the inflammation meter.

    No, lobster and crab are giant sea bugs. You're crazy for a whole different bunch of reasons

    Tilapia I can choke down but it is still unpleasant. Occassionally I will cook it for my wife who loves fish. Thanks for the tip.

    Everyone thanks for the input and the great ideas. NO MORE SALMON FOR ME YEAH!!!!! I'll just continue with grass-fed beef, sea bugs, eggs, the occassional can of sardines, and supplements.

    I definitely agree you shouldn't force yourself to eat something you hate. And I can relate because all my life I've hated visible fat on meat. IMO, it tastes and feels nasty. I haven't given up on it though, people change, I might change. I have gotten to the point that a very thin layer of soft fat on a large bite of meat sometimes does sort of add to the flavor. I never thought that would happen.

    Be open to the possibility that you might feel differently about fish one day. You don't have to actually admit to anyone that you're not firmly committed to hating fish forever.

    Have you tried smoked fish? like smoked haddock - I had some pieces of smoked haddock wrapped in bacon and grilled, served on a bed of spinach with a cheese sauce poured over, baked until sizzling and a poached egg plopped on top of that. It was amazing... Not really fishy at all.

    If you hate the taste of fish and still want to eat it, put it into a soup and use a lot of hot chili or tabasco sause and other flavorings as well, and presto no more fish taste...
