Fish oil rules

Filed in:

This is cricket nutrition tip of the week #3 by Dr. John Berardi.

I consider fish oil to be an essential supplement for fat loss. Data from the University of Western Ontario shows that fish oil supplementation increases lean body mass (during non-dieting conditions), increases BMR (by up to 400kcal/day), decreases inflammation, and improves the ratio of fat/carb oxidized (sparing carbs, burning fat). Recommended dose: Start with 6-10g per day of total fish oil (assuming 30% EPA and DHA).

For example the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) programme is one of a kind and the best so far.
