    Hi everyone! I received my plan this weekend and started yesterday. Today is a training day and as such, I am consuming the required fish oil, but getting the fishy burps...UGH! Any recommendations on effective "burp-less" fish oil? Thanks so much in advance!

    Hi there, just received my plan as well - will start tomorrow (Wednesday). I have been using Prograde Krill Oil - haven't experienced any "fishy burps".
    Also, the health food attendant mentioned using liquid form as well to avoid the fishy burps.

    Yup--try krill, liquid or just switch brands -- they don't all do that--IMO :)

    I will have to find Krill oil. I just take some from whole foods now, I don't remember the name. It's the size of a horse pill though!

    I remember seeing the fish oil info on the FAQ page but that link in my email no longer works with the new website and searching FAQ didn't work. Can anyone remind me what the EPA/DHA dose for each capsule is assumed to be? Thanks!

    ea capsule and brand is different.
    one aims for recommended dosage is 2-3 gr. of combined DHA/EPA per day.

    Question regarding fish oil vs chia seeds.
    Was having a discussion this morning about fish oil, and someone said they get the burps from fish oil. Another person said chia was equivalent to fish oil when it comes to the omegas.

    Anyone?

    I know this is an old thread - but what is a good way to consume my liquid fish oil? Do I just down it in one, or would it be better to add it to food in some way?

    Lol. I hate fish oil. I take it down, hold my nose, and chase w coffee or something. I seriously hate it. I tried to mix w food but it over powered everything! I would be interested to see other ppls advice too.

    The Nordic Naturals liquid is the most cost effective. I dont find it tastes all that offensive so i just throw it back too. There are some capsules you can take via that brand but they are not as cost effective in price and you have to take more.

    That's what I use, Ileen. What's the correct amount to use?

    Glad I found this thread. Today was my day 1 and I was dumb enough to mix it with my food. Let's just say lemon and peanut butter do not mix. Will throw it back tomorrow for sure!

    I started using it for a couple of days now, it's not that taste, it just doesn't sit well in my stomach.
    :sad:
