Why do you believe you need that number or EPA and DHA? Those omega 3 supplements can be expensive and the long term studies on them have not been consistently favorable. Just because the supplement says it has a certain amount of EPA and DHA does not mean your body is even capable of absorbing and using it. Why not just keep your omega 6 low by eating a clean whole food based diet and eat fish and grass fed beef once in awhile instead? If you cannot find a good grass fed beef source and you do not like the taste of fish I would still consider lowering your omega 6 consumption first and foremost. Then if you absolutely need a supplement consider fermented cod liver oil (Green Pastures) which is more of a whole food rather than a supplement anyways.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
