    is there anything else you are on or is this weight gain coming purely from the introduction of 40g of fish oil/day?

    Leviathan , Incarnate and "standard" stuff (BCAA, creatine, etc). the leviathan, incarnate, fish oil and doing GVT as workout scheme all started more or less together.

  3. An intake that high will have your blood as thin as water!

    You may want to reconsider using such a high dose.

    Department of Human Biology, Nutrition and Toxicology Research and Cardiovascular Research Institutes of Maastricht, Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands.

    OBJECTIVE: The beneficial effect of dietary fish oil, rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), on cardiovascular disease is multifactorial and may partly rely on their anticoagulant action. We studied how fish oil intake influenced thrombin generation in plasma and which factors were involved herein. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty-five healthy males with borderline overweight received 3.0 g omega-3 PUFAs daily for 4 weeks. Fish oil intake reduced plasma triglycerides and lowered platelet integrin activation, as well as plasma levels of fibrinogen and factor V, but had no effect on vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Before fish oil intake, thrombin generation (reflecting the coagulant potential) considerably varied between plasmas from individual subjects, which were partly explained by variation in prothrombin, antithrombin, fibrinogen, and factor V levels. Fish oil intake reduced thrombin generation in the presence and absence of platelets. This reduction correlated with the fish oil effect on fibrinogen and factor V levels. Interestingly, the lowering effect of fish oil on thrombin generation and fibrinogen clustered around subjects with high fibrinogen carrying a structural fibrinogen alpha-chain polymorphism. CONCLUSIONS: Dietary omega-3 PUFAs provoke a hypocoagulant, vitamin K-independent effect in humans, the degree of which may depend on fibrinogen level. Intake of fish oil reduced fibrinogen and factor V levels as well as thrombin generation in plasma. The effects on thrombin generation and fibrinogen clustered around subjects with high fibrinogen carrying alpha-chain fibrinogen polymorphism. Thus, dietary fish oil can provoke a hypocoagulant effect depending on the fibrinogen level

  4. well there is only one way to find out. Prick your finger and see how long it takes you to bleed out.

    also i have a question about fish oil. There is a product that Now oods puts out called super EPA/DHA. I believe that is what it is called. It has about twice as much EPA/DHA in the same amount of oil. Would this be better or does it have to be fish oil to recieve all the health benefits. in other words is EPA/and DHA the only things in the fish oil that provide the health benefits.

  5. Hey E, how long are you planning on megadosing the fish oils? I'm very interested in learning more about this idea. Also, do you have a link to where I can read more about this? Those are some ridiculous gains, keep up the good work.

    you kind of have to search around, but here is one piece on his site

    I think i'll do it at this ridiculous rate 4-6 weeks, then drop to 12-15g/day. He recommends that somewhere else too. I'll probably only stay at that another 4-6 weeks, then go a month with no added fish oils.

    Its theoretically good for either. In general anything that encourages anabolic activity is, with the steroids its the androgenic side that makes things more of a bulker than a cutter.


    As far as fish oil in fish, this is a pretty good list of DHA / EPA levels

    http://www.health.gov/dietaryguideli...e_g2_adda2.htm

    doesn't show total fats. An 8oz salmon fillet has around the DHA as I am taking

    Oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and swordfish, have a good dose per serving (10-20g). Unfortunately, those ARE the chief culprits when it comes to unhealthy amounts of mercury (salmon is actually fine; I haven't heard of any unsafe merc levels in salmon or salmon oil).

    They say to eat mackerel and swordfish only a couple times a week max to avoid potential probs with toxicity.

    I did learn that standard fish oil used in caps and liqud fish oil supps is made primarily of anchovies and sardines. That suggests that it shouldn't be a problem with the mercury thing.

    Personally, I'd still stand by the idea of a combo of flax and fish oil to get the omegas covered. Fish oil is a must supp, though.

  19. This smells like the whole bodybuilder, "more is better" thing. I take 25g a day. I thought that was high enough.

    I wanna find out more about the Vitamin A issue before I take even that much...

  21. i tried taking a few pills a day and started burping up fish oil. it was NASTY. i'm super reluctant to do it again. something about tasting sardines all day makes me gag.

    I had the same problem, but after about a week the fish oil burps subsided

    The burps make me feel manly.

  24. the burps are way cooler with lemon lime flavored oil. sorta like a built in breath freshener

  25. I've been jackin up my dose on Omega 3s... Getting 30 grams a day just from the supps and I eat a good amount of seafood.
