    Except...you can actually use this site. OK, maybe that's why people are using this forum.

    Can I get a quote here?
    On a whim I called and talked to this very nice person named Peggy:

    Reasons why people would choose to supplement:
    1) Fish is expensive
    2) Good, fresh fish isn't accessible some places
    3) Fish takes time and effort to prepare
    4) Not everyone likes the taste of seafood

    You're preaching to the choir, as I eat as much fish weekly as anyone here. I don't find that most people really like it enough to invest in it or put forth effort preparing it. Aside from Roy, did anyone here ever say that fish oil capsules were better than eating actual fish? Can't believe we are still talking about fish oil capsules. Yes, I know the thread us titled fish oil. It's been a good thread though in its deviance.

    What about that whole "fish burps" thing? I can honestly say that the prospect of fishy burps has kept me from taking a fish oil supplement. I mean, that sounds hellaciously disgusting, does it not?

    may antecdotal evidence? I drop mad greasy douces when I have that fish oil pill
    concentrated plant extracts seem to make sense to me but concentrated animal extracts? I am put off.

    Emass, if you catch the fish yourself, its fresh, there are lakes everywhere and catfish and tilapia eat their own waste. A backyard aquaponics setup is under 1k or even far far less depending on size...so if you are controlling the input (food) to the system, the fish are good to go even with their coprophagous habits.

    my point is with minimal effort fresh fish is available ANYWHERE. I will have pics of my setup posted in a few weeks, tilapia arent much sought after, but they are food and if you know the history start to finish (egg to plate) they are THAT much better

    .
    Firstly I have never suggested that fish oil capsules are better than fish.

    Secondly I don't eat fish oil capsules.

    I hope that clarifies the matter for you.

    Where I am living fresh fish is not available. I eat it when i go to the coast. At other times I sometimes use cod liver oil, which is sold in a bottle. I used to eat Canadian sardines often but not since Fukushima, I also used to eat tinned mackerel from Chile but have stopped since everything available now is from Thailand and tastes like crap.

    Cod liver oil has some vitamin d so I use it at the end of winter. The immediate effect we notice is the body warming up, with improved circulation in the face and extremities.

    By the way I'm interested to know why omega three is absorbed better when eating fish. i'm not saying that it isn't true, just interested.

    Man screw all the healthy crap! I'm 38 years old, eat fast food 4 or more days a week sometimes twice a day, have Lance Toastchee crackers and a Coke for breakfast 7 days a week and am still level 5 on Blue Cross Blue Shields fitness ranking for my company (goes from 1-5 and I actually get money back from the company for level 4 or 5). My cholesterol is 172, resting heart rate is 51, body fat is 8% and I can run a mile in under 5 minuets without being winded. I drink a glass of milk every night before bed and have never broken a bone other than a toe. I have maintained this fitness level for the last decade with out working out other than 3-4 days of Taekwondo class a week, surfing a few times a month and playing golf a few times a month also (but riding in a cart) so probably does not count. Not saying that all people can do this but I do eat in moderation and pretty much do not eat sweets or deserts but do love fatty southern foods. If taking vitamins, fish oil and other stuff helps you keep it up but for me I'm happy with my diet and lifestyle. I should mention I have not drank alcohol in the last 10-12 years either other than maybe one beer a year at a wedding or such. Also I rarely if ever drink water.
