Olive Oil vs. Flax Oil
Which is better?

Flax has more omega properties I believe, so I'd go with flax.

Olive isn't bad but if you have the option go with flax.

They both have their pluses. Flax is good for the EFA's and the ratio of Omega 6's and 3's. Olive Oil is a good source of monounsaturated fat. Take both if you can. If you can only take 1 I would take Flax.

both are equaly needed imo. Olive has so many advantages that flax doesnt and vice versa so including both is a favor to your health

Use a mix of both, flax in protein shakes and cooking with olive oil.
The benefits of both oils go far behond bodybuilding.

all frying fats turn into unwanted fats when cooking. But the safest oil to fry in is olive oil. The best fat to fry in is regular butter its very sturdy against heat.

I think Coconut Oil is supposed to be very good for cooking as well for high heat cooking (350 degrees)

would make sense since its saturated fats and they can whitstand heat better.
I would go with butter though and drink the cononut oil as a mct oil source. But its because Im a cheap son of a bitch
