How bout you just train with more intensity. Low impact is a waste of time. The lack of variety in That diet would drive me nuts. Surely you eat some other things?

Olive oil has some PUFAS, which degrade rather quickly. Most people don't seem to know this and they buy olive oil in clear containers and don't bother shielding it from the light. A properly stored cold pressed olive oil is a world away from the... (more)

danno, unfortunately, the krill oil business is almost a monopoly. There is one firm in Canada that effectively is the only mass volume producer, and all of the name brands you buy in a store are in fact just relabeling that one company's oil.... (more)

Fish oil isn't even as good as dripped oil of fish and fish has much more healthy components in it. My suggestion is to choose healthier seafood alternatives available to you and to stick with them.
