    agree with the above ^^^^

    but to answer the question

    1000mg = 1 gram of fat

    1 gram of fat = 9 calories

    the metabolic increases resultant from the fish oil should out weigh the calorie values of the fish oil itself. Hence why i agree with TIO.

    Sorry about bumping an older thread but...... You take 10 a day? isn't that to many? Reason I ask is on my bottle is says take no more than 1 per day

    I just got myself some on the weekend ( Seven Seas one a day cod liver oil ) 525mg code liver oil, 120mg of omega3 nutrients, of which 85mg is EPA & DHA. Am I not taking enough then at 1 per day and if thats the case why does the bottle say take just 1 per day? cheers.

    i think that is just the rda for it, but like most thing if you are trying to bulk up or just do a lot of intense activitys u need higher amounts compared to the rda for example protein rda is 50g and a lot of us take over 200g
    i myself only take 1 a day but might up the amount when i buy a bulk load of them, cant se any downsides to taking more of them all it is a good fats

    That was my main concern, if taking more than the 1 per day would do you any harm, just wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna OD on fish oil capsules

    Careful - i think cod liver oil is different to regular fish oil.

    Too high a dose and they can have a blood thinning effect, however saying that I would not think taking 3 at a time would pose a significant risk, unless you have any pre-existing conditions which would be encouraged via fish oils (few and far between might I add).

    There are many trainers (Charles Poliquin to name one) who actually advocate a higher dose of fish oils on their training clients with great success, but as I am sure you can appreciate this is not a reason to try it out.

    Although with the EPA you have, you may notice an improvement in mood and wellbeing.

    Hope that helps
