At least not a mean one. Maybe I should say it’s more of treat. Good morning! I went to my doctor a few weeks back and got the eye and the lecture for my cholesterol numbers. Part of the program for getting them where they need to be (besides diet and exercise) is taking a fish oil capsule every day. Oh YUCK! I don’t think there is anything worse than burping after consuming one of those capsules and I am sure this prevents a lot of people from taking them. Then one of my clients came in and I was telling her about the recommendation from my doc. She said her doc gave her the same recommendation but to make it less of an unpleasant experience that she should put her fish oil caps in the freezer and freeze them. Swallowing them frozen allows them to get waaaaay down into your tummy and past the point where they would cause the burping problem. I have been doing this for several weeks now and not one burp leading to the disgusting aftertaste — and bad breath!! — of swallowing those caps right out of the bottle. This works!!!! So take your omega 3’s, just remember to freeze ’em first!
