Help with calorie counting

Hi,
Im currently putting together a meal plan and am working out the calorie values for various foods, but im struggling with the calories in fish oil tabs? does anyone know? I have the omega 3 6 9 from MP. I plan to use these for half of my fat intake but cant find the answer anywhere??
 
any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Half of your fat intake?

    Why?

    because their nicely balanced, (2.1 omega 3 to 6) If i consume at least half of my intake with these fats, i at least know that half of my fat intake is positive just incase the other half has high omega 6. (hope that makes sense) I just didnt wana takin about 10 of these a day and finding out that these bad boys have 9 calories in each throwing my fat intake higher than what i want.

    counting the amount of calories you consume is less critical and significant in comparison to what those calories are.

    Err.. No.

    The number of calories you eat in relation to the number of calories you use is the prime consideration when looking to cut.

    and clean bulk IMO, is my question such a daft one? I plan to bulk very cleanly this year, and I dont want to consume my allowed fat intake and bang fish oils in extra bumping my calories too high.

    No, actually the primary consideration is the distribution of the foods.  People get too hung up on daily figures.  You can be in numerous metabolic states in a 24 hour period and this is overlooked.
