Flaxseed Oil

What is the proper amount of Flaxseed oil to have per day on a cut? Is Liquid or caps better? I was thinking caps, I saw NOW Foods has 250caps/1000mg. Thanks for the input guys

    Depends on how much fat you're aiming to get in your cutting diet, what other sources of fats you're taking in and how much.

    The oil itself may work out cheaper for you if you're going to be using quite a bit. But then again the caps may be much easier/convenient for you.

    Like kerr I use the powdered form as I find it the easiest and most cost effective way to consume a good source of fats (and fibre) like flax.

    What ratio of protein/carb/fat are you roughly aiming for in the diet?

    I was told 10ml 2x per day but what does ML translate into mg or grams.
