    There is an article written by Robbie Durand, MD & Steve Blechman in this months (April) Muscular Development magazine (pp 180-192) that discusses fish oil as an anti-inflamatory and speculates that high usage could reduce muscle hypertrophy in the same way as aspirin, NSAIDs and COX-2 inhibitors.

    Don't worry about these sorts of things honestly. That is the least of your worries. You aren't going to lose "that" much; nothing noticeable. Not only that but heck if you ate that much fish I would be more concerned with mercury lol.
