Omega-3 and Fishy Burps

I wanted to say something about Omega-3 and its source. I am a diabetic, recently put onto insulin, with massively high cholesterol and also high triglycerides and high sugar levels. I’m not talking high as in the 200s, I’m talking high as in 900 for cholesterol and 900 for triglycerides too.
Today I was told to cut red meats out of my diet completely, as well as fat, so I went looking for information on what to do and what to eat, and I came across this article here, and just wanted to put my two cents into the part about Omega-3. So here it is…
I take Omega-3 Fish oil, 2x a day, 2,400 mg total each day, and I don't have a problem with taking it. The only problem I had was the nasty fishy oily taste in my mouth and throat after taking them. So, I talked to my local Pharmacy tech and asked what she had to say. She told me, flat out, "take the ones with no fishy aftertaste." So I looked for them on the shelf, and sure enough, they existed! I started taking them, and not once since, have I had problems with taking Omega-3 fish oil capsules again. And it’s good to my body, which I need all the help I can get.
So my word of advice to you, if you don't like the taste of fish (like me!) then find the Omega-3 Fish Oil that is Tasteless and start taking them regularly. You won't regret it.
