Fat Cals Counting?

do i count the calories from things like flax seed oil and fish oil caps. into my daily caloric intake?

so far i have been since i figure a calorie is a calorie, but i just wanted to double check. (an excuse to eat more would be nice haha)

The food items you mentioned wouldn’t be many calories (percentage wise), so I wouldn’t.

Unless you’re chugging the whole bottle of fish oil caps and drinking a cup of oil. Yuck.

But you can count them it you want to. It’ll keep your math skills finely tuned.
