Velocity Diet Flax Oil?


I'm doing the V-diet and i bought flax oil capsules to take for my fat needs but i dont know how much to take. each is 1000 mg , how many should i take?


My good man, capsules are not what you need. Go down to your local healthfood store and get yourself a quart of Barlean's flax oil. I use 3-4 TBS per day. If you go with caps, you'll have to take a huge number of them to do any good. You may also want to get some whole flaxseed and a cheap ($12 at Walmart) coffee grinder. Then you can make your own flax meal too.
