After finding this forum this week and reading about the benefits of EFA's, I'm convinced I need to add some to my diet. Is there any benefit to taking fish oil caps vs. Udos perfect blend or something similiar? How often should you take it. If I add this to my diet, should I cut out other fats like Natural PB. Thanks.
You should have a balance of EFAs. Personally I use both Udo's and fish oil caps, it's not good to rely on only one source. Make sure you get in some saturated fats through red meat, whole eggs, and a little bit of coconut oil. Natural peanut butter is good for n-9s, Udo's will give you 3-6-9, and fish oil is rich in n-3s, I believe, in the form of EPA/DHA. So no, you shouldn't cut out natural peanut butter, because a) it's unbelievably tasty, I could never cut it out and b) it will contribute variety, which is the cornerstone of every successful diet.
I recommend that you use flax seed meal, wheat germ, Udo's oil, walnuts (raw or oil, I much prefer raw), whole eggs, red meat, small amounts of coconut oil, natural PB, fish oil caps, full fat cottage cheese all at the same time. But that's just me. Switch your fat sources around.
Personally I think it depends on your goals and diet plan as to HOW much fat you add. Adding all those sources of fat seems a bit much to me.
Keep the PB for sure but if you do nothing else, invest in fish oil.
