Mike, I know you workout. Do you have any opinions on not taking fish oil PRIOR to workouts?

I am led to believe that after a workout, you actually want insulin sensitivity by taking chromium, and with the added sensitivity it will aid your muscles in absorbing protein and carbohydrates when having the recovery meal (within 2 hours of a workout).

So it seems to me that fish oil *before* a workout would interfere with this recovery process.

I know that *after* 2 hours of a workout, THEN it's OK to take the fish oil.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
