"Just Eat Fish"


I supplemented for several years.  It was better than not supplementing.

When I decided to stop eating seed oils, and started supplementing with cod liver oil, I craved the cod liver oil like mad.  Couldn't get to sleep without a dose.  For about four months.

Now I eat fish regularly, avoid seed oils (omega-6 oils) like the plague, and have no desire whatsoever to eat the cod liver oil in my fridge. 

I tried eating a bunch of typical seed oils for lunch a couple of weeks ago.  It messed my brain up seriously for a day or so, and I still don't feel that I've gotten completely back to normal.  The new normal, that is.  I won't make that mistake again.

The only thing I crave now, occasionally, is salmon roe.  Love that.

And listen to folks comment on how different my behavior is.  For the better.

(That article is why I started supplementing with fish oil in the first place.  I now believe that most, if not all, of our modern health problems involve malnutrition in one way or another.)
