Omega's/Fish oils/EFA etc Do they really help with weight loss ?

I just wanted to pose this question to people here, and see what your thoughts are as to whether these kinds of products do actually aid in reducing body fat along with diet/exercise ?

    High dose fish oil helped me lose an extra few lb's on top of what I normally would have

    I always see conflicting reports. Some say it helps, say say it doesn't, some say it actually makes you gain weight. What gives?

    It's something I'd like to read up on, taking some EFA's etc every day isn't a bad thing AFAIK but to the extent of it helping to shift weight along side the typical diet/exercise etc I'd really like to know more.
    Have either of you guys seen any articles floating about ?

    The effect they have, if any, depends upon where you start from. In some they can help tinker with the way your body stores nutrients in your diet for example. The effect is any is generally small unless you have some kind of specific issue.
