7 Things You Gotta Know about Fish Oil

-happy-fish_001 I got on the scales this week and just about fell off. {Rubbing eyes and blinking several times.} Down TEN pounds. TEN.

For several weeks, I've avoided the scales since they hit an all time high a couple of weeks back. But, by popular demand, I am blogging about this because the only major change in my diet was taking a tsp. of pure refined fish oil daily. When I posted it on Facebook and Twitter, the reaction was enormous.

So, here's what I've learned to make it all clear to you:

1. In his new book "Toxic Fat" (which you can read about HERE), Dr. Sears RAVES about taking fish oil. So, I became intrigued.

2. WHY? Because fish has critical Omega 3 fatty acids that balance oh so much in the body.

3. BUT, you don't get enough by just eating fish (which the holistic doctor I just visited contradicted and yet she still sold me the pure refined fish oil I wanted to try — for which I am very grateful.)

4. And generic fish oil pills in the drug stores ARE NOT good for you and can actually do harm.

5. WHY? Because generic fish oil pills are apparently made from small fish and are full of fillers that do NOT help your body.

6. What I was sold at the local doctor's office (and I found it cheaper on Amazon) was Pharmax Finest Pure Fish Oil with essential oil of Orange, 200 mL (and the slight orange taste definitely helps the pure teaspoon of it I drink go down much easier.)

7. Do I know if this is the only reason I just lost 10 lbs eating worse than I have in months and exercising less? I don't know. I do know that I feel much more confident and happy now that I've lost this weight and I want it to keep coming off. I can tell my metabolism is ramping back up and I want to exercise and put healthy things in my body. Mabye it's a placebo effect, maybe not. Maybe Dr. Sears knows his stuff after YEARS of research. I'm siding with him from now on.

ONE MINOR SIDE EFFECT: Constipation. Okay, now that's more than you wanted to hear. Prune juice works great to counteract this -just limit your serving size. Lord, have mercy. One day I poured myself a big glass. Whew. 'Nuf said.

Well, that's all for today. I'll let you know how it goes! I would love to hear your experience if you try it. I was at an all time high in my weight so I really don't know what would happen to someone starting off smaller.

(And, I am going back to the doctor this Friday to find out the results of a food allergy blood test they took. Should be interesting to learn what foods my body reacts positively or negatively to. More on that later.)
