The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet

Just wondering if anyone has read "The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet" by Evelyn Tribole and if you have, what's your take on it? I haven't read it but ran across it in a bookstore on my way out and didn't have time to flip through it.

Re: The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet

So, I have been a google fan every since the day it was released/created.

They have a lot of awesome resources/tools ... and one of them is online books.

Have fun.
*edit*
That probably wont due you much good.
They have some thing that actually has the book in PDF ... let me find it, and i'll repost, sorry.

Re: The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet

I was always under the impression that Google's book database was just excerpts from the books and not the entire book? That'd be cool though.

You can always see if you can find the book on Amazon or other popular book sites and see if you can find some reviews.

I have the book and enjoyed reading it. One thing she touches on that I haven't seen discussed here and PM is the two kinds of Omega-3's: Plant-based and animal-based. She emphasizes that we need both and her recommended source for plant-based (ALA, I think....) is flaxseed, which some around here seem to be against. Her book also made me hesitant to eat nuts because of their high Omega-6 content. She also identifies what she thinks is the the major Omega-6 source in the American diet: Soy (mainly in the form of soybean oil which is in SO many foods).

I haven't read any other books on the Omega fatty acids so I can't compare it to any others.

I'm not sure why so many here bash flaxseed (many know I am a huge proponent of flax). If you have a good ratio of omega-3 to 6 you'll convert much more of the flax ALA to EPA and DHA then a person who has a very high omega-6 count. It is a staple in my diet along with fish and omega-3 epa/dha supplementation. You also cannot beat the fiber in flax, I swear you could use it in a paint stripper it cleans you out so well!
