Thread: fish oil

    Ahem...

    "The men who said they skipped breakfast tended to be younger, single, smokers, who worked full time, did not do much exercise and drank more alcohol.

    The researchers also found when they adjusted the results to take out the effect of body mass index, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, the links between skipping breakfast and higher risk for heart attack or death from coronary heart disease became much weaker: they were no longer statistically significant."


    In my case the case is irrelevant since I am not overweight, have normal blood, do not have diabetes or high cholesterol, have normal blood pressure (low for my age) do not drink alcohol and exercise regularly.

    Also the study says that eating late at night is a risk factor which is associated with skipping breakfast, however I do not eat late at night.

    Wow, good for you. Pick the negative in one study to fit your beliefs. Still stands that most people are better off eating breakfast, and it still helps morning mental alertness.

    This thread sucks now. Was a pretty good discussion of various diets and supplements that different guys take and we were all being fairly intelligent and academic about it. The kind of thread that peeps would come on SI for the first time and thinks it's a good place. Then this thread went down the schitter and from the looks of it, the whole weekend has been an idocracy on the forum. Glad I was busy rippin peaks in the wave pool out here in the desert and paying no mind to that rubbish! Hope the weekend went well for you braziers and that your Monday starts off well. Try and use a few more brain cells than you did here this weekend.

    I simply read the study thoroughly, if you had you wouldn't have posted it in support of your case.

    i disagree on both counts, I find that not eating breakfast improves alertness as the body does not have to put energy into digestion.

    I read the studies, and wasn't focusing on one benefit. The studies disagree with you on alertness.
    I am not sure how you expect all this energy and alertness without the fuel required for both.

    Don't trash this thread anymore with opinions. If you are going to counter something, have enough respect to at least research and post some studies.

    As with any thread RS posts on, this one is degrading to snide remarks and opinions.

    Right, when have I made snide remarks (when not a reply to a rude comment)? I believe I posted about the benefits of eating fruit for breakfast, but then we moved down the path of opinion. Just like the fish oil topic. I have been respectful and polite, and have been posting studies to back up my comments. What have you contributed?

    Ok-
    Fish oils-I am a graduate from Emory University. Practiced general medicine for 3 years and found that I was opposed to the approach of dispensing drugs for every condition. A good friend told me about his practice as a Chiropractor and the all natural approach to health appealed to me so much that I opted for a career change.
    I have been practicing as a D.C. for 12 years. I have had over 200 patients tested at either Lipid Technologies or Metametrix Clinical Lab for the Omega 3/ Omega 6 ratio.
    All of those that have taken a quality Omega 3 supplement have seen significant improvement.

    As far as should it be taken? You can find links to support whatever argument you want. I have put in a lot of time on this subject and my conclusion is that the vast majority of data proves it to be of benefit.

    Breakfast- There is no doubt that fueling up at the start of the day is best. Some people have a really hard time eating until they have been up for several hours...

    Comments- if you can't see how condescending and snarky some of your comments are then I would suggest reading through some of this thread. Posting a link and then sneering that someone is wrong because it refutes whatever link you found is evidence enough.
