We are newbies to Paleo and if I follow Robb's suggestion of 1 gram per 10 lbs of body weight then that is a lot of grams of fish oil just for me and my husband combined. I did check out Mr. Sears fish oil and I was a bit overwhelmed at the cost of fish oil for one month and I am sure that is based on normal weight for one months supply so it would be even more for us!
We are both obese and we are looking at taking about 58 grams a day combined. I have no idea how many capsules that would be right now. Has someone on limited income figured out the best way to achieve this to get a better balance in the beginning with fish oil without spending a fortune?
I guess you can get the oil by the bottle. How many grams are in one teaspoon of fish oil or perhaps it varies by brand? The thought of actually swallowing fish oil and multiple teaspoons or tablespoons is a bit daunting so not sure which way to track this liquid vs caplets vs cost vs gagging.
We are not training for anything and are trying to lose weight and remedy various health problems. We eat fish at least twice a week. But I do have Fibromyalgia and inflammation and if high doses of fish oil in the beginning will tap down the pain and inflammation this is very important to get this right.
