Flameout ?

I have been taking the Flameout supplement for awhile, and I think it’s great and the health benefits are obvious, but I have a question. Even taking half a dose, (2 caps a day) my wife complains that I smell like fish, especially on days I eat salmon or tuna besides.

Since I don’t make it a habit of skipping showers and generally have good hygene I don’t believe her, and think it’s in her head. I was wondering if anyone else had had someone comment about this or ran across it?

Shouldn’t be an issue unless you’re getting fish burps. I personally don’t get them from Flameout or other fish oil. But make sure to take it with meals. Also, tell your wife you stopped taking it but continue taking it. Ask her if she notices a difference after a few days. If she says yes, tell her the truth and that it’s in her head.

Haha. Sorry that was funny. I don’t mean to call you captain obvious, but if you eat fish you will likely smell like it.

Seriously though- does she say your breath smells like fish or you in general. If it’s your breath I would agree with her, sometimes fish oil pills acan lead to fish breath. If she says that you in general are somewhat fishy, then she is off her rocker and is completely mental. Commit her right away.

thanks for the comments, no it’s not my breath, I agree that would be obvious, and I do have good hygiene, I haven’t stopped bathing or anything haha she says that when I sweat alot etc that she can just smell it, like it’s just coming out my pores or something.

That is a good idea about changing the pattern and not telling her, as I said I thought it was in her head but just wanted to see if it had been a issue for anyone else, especially those taking a full reccomended dosage or more.

I for one get those fish burps in a bad way from Flameout, not too mention they murder my stomach. It’s something I’m still trying to get used to, because the health benefits are so obvious.

Maybe it’s actually her that smells, and she’s blaming you.
