    I will take more fish oil then I use too and will stop taking flax, I'm already using differents source for fibers!

    Thanks

    I was going to order a pound of flax for mixing in my shakes (instead of ordering it already mixed in it from TP), but from what you say, it's far as beneficial as taking Omega 3 from natural sources. But you stated that you are taking fishoil from trueprotein (for vit. D), is that mean this is an 'ok' sources of Omega 3 ? I absolutely hate fish food.

    Thanks again!

    The post is taken from John Meadows Mountain Dog diet...I posted this before but though it was worth repeating.

    Omega 3 from fish oil is best as you don't need to convert it as you would flax...2000mg twice daily.
    Vitamin D 4000iu daily is ideal...Carlson is a decent brand.

    Another great post by John Meadows.

    Concerns about Saturated Fat and Heart Disease

    If you think eating some animal fat will give you heart disease due to the saturated fat, think again. We have had this beaten into our collective psyches for so long, it is very hard to yank it out. It is proven that the fat in atheroma blockages is actually upwards of 70-75% UNSATURATED (Felton et all 1994). 40% or so is polyunsaturated. When heart disease skyrocketed from 1920-1960, people actually ate less meat, but were consuming more vegetable fats (and cooking with them), such as corn oil. Oxidized polyunsaturated fats are something you SHOULD fear.

    If you are really concerned about heart disease, I would pay more attention to your C-reactive protein levels, as they are a marker for inflammation. Inflammation is a response to infection or injury, or other conditions, and evidence continues to mount that atherosclerosis is initiated by some sort of inflammatory process.

    The Lower the Cholesterol Levels you Have the Better?Right?

    Wrong. Actually the all cause death rate is HIGHER (risk rate is 14-22% greater) in men with total cholesterol levels lower than 160 mg/dl. Cancer risk rates are also 18-23% higher in those with cholesterol levels less than 160 mg/dl. (Circulation 1992 86:3). I do want to say that the results I mentioned above were for men. If you look at the citation, the assessment for women is a bit confusing.

    Is Cholesterol Bad? Shouldn't we try to lower it?

    No it's not bad. Cholesterol elevation is a PROTECTIVE mechanism, not a cause. It makes no sense to try and wipe out cholesterol. If you see firemen at fires all the time, does it mean that firemen cause fires? Of course not. Causation vs. correlation.

    Cholesterol has many derivatives you may recognize. Bile acids, Adrenal cortical steroid hormones, male steroid hormones, Vitamin D3 (via provitamin means), and more. Does it make sense to try and get your cholesterol to the lowest possible levels knowing this? I don't think so.


    Anyways, just some thoughts I wanted to share.

    Regards and Happy Holidays!
