    Will probably go into Holland and Barrett tomorrow to get some Whey for when i do my bulk seen as its low in price at the minute, so i will probably go and get some peanut butter and flax seed. I have been eating Tuna in sunflower oil, but people say there are better choices than that for getting my fats, so i will replace the sunflower oil with flax seeds and natural peanut butter as well as eating the kippers, salmon and mackerel i got from Morrisons earlier.

    Just been looking at Holland and Barrett's website, is the Flaxseed oil actually a liquid or in tablet form? ? ? If its in tablet form, how do you know how much calories and fat it actually contains? ? ?

    just use the liquid form mate. Put a little bit into your protein shake or mix it with things like porridge etc. You can even use it on your salad dressing, but flax seed oil is not the tastyest oil around

    Don't cook with it though.

    I get mine either from local independent health food shop or from Sainsburys.

    One more tip: once you open it, keep it in the fridge! This prevents it from going rancid.

    If you have an organic specialised shop in your area you can pick up some peanut butter for next to nothing with only peanuts as the ingredients. I picked up a 750g jar for £1.79.

    what about flaxseeds in seed form not oil.

    i can't find these anywhere near me, they have good fibre content too.

    I got some linseed (flax) the other day, i noticed there are two types- ordinary ones that are a dark brown colour and golde ones that are a lighter "golden" colour (funnily enough!)

    Is there any real difference between the two, is one better than the other?

    Do you know anywhere cheaper for flaxseeds (not oil)? That the only place I've found them.

    thats the price i pay at a local independent health food/vegetarian food shop, and i believe it is about the same price at Sainsburys - the big supermarkets tend to have them in their health/weird food section.

    i have seen some really outrageously priced ones as well around, but it is essentially the same thing. I guess some companies think they can rip people off while flax seed is seen as exotic wonder food, rather than staple part of everybodys diet as it should be.

    But is that flax seeds? I've never seen flax seeds in a supermarket or health food shop even.

    In Holland and Barretf whole Linseeds (flax seeds by a different name) are £1.99 for a big bag. Can't remeber if its 500g or 1Kg but they're still pretty cheap. I've read that the best way to beneifit from flax oil is to take the seed and grind them up and add them to your food or protein shakes. You need to add about 4 times the amount of ground seeds as you would oil but you don't have the storage problems you have with oil because the unground seeds stay fresh for a long time, oil can go rancid if not stored correctly. You also get extra fiber with the seeds.

    I've just oredred a spice nut chopper to see if this will grind the seeds to a powder. If it doesn't I'm going to get hold of a cheap coffee grinder because apparently these work well.
