Fish Oil

Recommended Posts

Guest KyGuY

Hi all,

 

Can anyone tell me where fish oil fits with WW? Two fish oil supplements equal 25 calories and 1200 mg of oil. Does this count as 1 point and 1 of your daily oil requirement?

 

Thanks.

Unless WW has changed this requirement recently (I didn't have a meeting the last few weeks), fish oil capsules do NOT count toward the Good Health Guideline. The oil has to be liquid.

Oil is liquid and Fish oil is a liquid inside a capsule which disolves.

From the WW web site:

 

Why is 2 tsp of oil each day recommended for both the Core Plan and the Flex Plan?

 

The oils - olive, canola, safflower, sunflower, or flaxseed oil – are recommended as they are a good source of essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. The inclusion of 2 tsp per day helps ensure that these nutritional needs are met. Oil capsules, vitamin E supplements, or seeds (flaxseeds) cannot be substituted. While those on the Core Plan should include 2 tsp of oil each day, those on the Flex Plan will need to count 2 tsp of the recommended oils as part of their weekly POINTS Allowance.

My husband takes these and I should too. You could just count for them. They are good for inflammation.

There isn't a teaspoon of oil in that. Take a capsule apart and measure it. If it isn't on the list it doesn't count.
