    I cant stomach flax oil

    I have tried over and over to try and take that stuff down and I am truly weak. I just cant take that stuff, I feel like throwing up. And there is no way I can see myself ever incorporating that into my life. No way, no how. Is there a suitable substitute I can use instead of flax. Can I not substitute flax for natural peanut butter. I normally eat pro/fat meals after cardio and right before sleep, can I just eat peanut butter instead of using flax with my protein drinks or is that a no-no?

    Bro I had your problem when I first started but now I just drop a tablespoon in the back of my mouth and hold my breath and take it. It's casual now. Just drop it behind your tongue so you don't taste it. I don't mix it with my shakes because then I can really taste it.

    Then use other EFAs. Almonds are good, olive oil etc etc etc. Just find a few you like and swap em. Maybe once in a while if you can handle it have some flax seed oil, but it's not going to kill you if you don't use it

    I had to sub the flax with olive oil.

    Olive oil goes good with everything.

    Olive it is then! If I marinate my chicken breast in olive oil for a bit, then grill it with some lemon pepper (or other seasoning)... is that good enough?

    Cooking the oil will denature it a bit......either take a tablespoon of it straight or use another fat source.

    Ah I see. I will try a tablespoon of that. But does that mean it replaces my morning snack of 3 tablespoons of peanut butter. I sure hope not

    Flax is the bomb.

    It's health properties and fat loss assistance totally negate any nasty taste it may have because it's just so d*mn good for you. I actually like the taste, but I'm a loco mother f*cker.

    Swole, you like that nasty $hit? You are loco, bro. I hate it, but I take it. Like I say, you can't be a pussy in the kitchen.

    Sorry if I'm beating a dead horse here, but does olive oil (and/or peanut butter) equate to Flax oil's health properties and fat loss assistance? Or is Flax superior and cannot even be compared to? Is there THAT much of a difference?

    Suck it up and take the flax for gods sake, we all make sacrifices here. Chase it with your protein or water.....

    3 tbsp of Natty PB? I do not know your dietary approach but that sounds a bit much for one sitting. 2 tbsp should be sufficient.


    Good stuff though right? I love it.

    It is definately nasty.......I too just drop it behind the tongue. I've only been using it for a little while, but it seems to be working.

    I will definatley have to keep a look out for the "really nice skin"........(2 snaps and a circle).....lol
