A few weeks ago I posted a blog entry about cholesterol, specifically the lack of my HDLs.  One of the suggestions I read about to increase HDLs involved taking fish oil.  So, I've been trying this.

I picked up some Barlean's Fish Oil and have been taking two teaspoons of it per week (Monday and Thursday, usually).  There was some question of whether it should be refrigerated so I decided to keep it in chilled.

I was going to give it six (6) months and see if it made any impact on my HDLs.  I figured it wouldn't have any other effect on my health but it looks like it might be giving me more energy while swimming.  Check out this graph of my swim times:


My times have slightly improved.  I feel like I have more energy than I did before taking the fish oil, oddly enough.  However, correlation does not imply causation so I can't be sure that the reason I have more energy is solely because of the fish oil.  However, I will be continuing with it!
