I know what you mean. I recently told someone I was taking 20 fish oil caps a day and I was given a frowning, concerned look “are you sure that’s ok for you? I only take 2”
Ditto. A colleague had a bottle of fish oil caps in his hand when leaving work just a few days ago. I started a quick conversation about it and touched on a few of the major benefits. You know, I get EXCITED about this stuff. So I asked how many he was taking.
“One a day.”
Oh man … I told him that I just take them by the handful, which is 10-12 at a time.
“Really? Are you sure that’s ok?”
It’s frustrating for sure, but why do I let it bother me? I dunno, but keep on keeping on. If I can influence only one person, well, perhaps I need better influencing skills.
Yeah, the trouble is that the label on the bottle often says take only 1 cap 3 times per day. It makes you wonder where the company who makes the things get their data from.
