    i would consume around 14, 1000 mg pills with each pro/fat shake i have. However, I would purchase the liquid form and measure out a tbsp. its much more convenient.

    SAY WHAT!?....14 a sitting, that means a bottle would last like a week, so how many grams in a tblsp?, i assume its much more economical. Would you say maybe 2 tbls split throughout the day with one going to pwo?

    Definietly much more economical. 1 tbsp has 14 grams of fat, and theres 32 tbsp in a bottle (at least my size bottle).

    I was given a bag of real flax seed once and the nutrition facts said it had carbs in it. So make sure what you get has a nutrtion fact chart or you could throw your macros off.

    Shit you had me scared there for a second, checked it out though and theres only 4g carbs/2 tbls so it shouldnt be an issue. Just one more question b4 this thread dies.......if theres 4.5g of fat in 2 tbls then should 3-4 tbls a day be enough?

    Its not really "tbsp per day." its all about your meal macros. I would consume 3 -4 tbsp per pro/fat meal. Meaning if i have a protein shake i would have around 14g of EFA's (3-4 tbsp of your flax).

    1 tsp is 5ml
    1 tbsp is 15 ml

    Flax oil is 100% fat

    a tbsp is around 14 grams of fat

    The whole flax seeds I just bought:

    3 tbsp
    P: 6 g
    C:7.5 g (7 g fiber)
    F:13.5 g

    Just thought I throw it out there. Haven't tried them yet, but SOOOO much cheaper than getting the capsules. Grind them in a coffee grinder for shakes and your good to go.
