    Peanuts Vs Fish oil

    Along with all the low fat fruits, vegetables, protein shakes and meat I eat, I've been eating one serving of peanuts or peanut butter a day in atempt to get %20 of good fat I need. But I heard that fish oils are also good. Is the fat in fish oil pills the same thing that's in peanut butter (ploy + monosaturated) or is there something else in them that I'm missing out on?

    actually, peanuts are rich in Omega 6, very low in omega 3, and no omega 9 I believe. Fish oil is rich in omega 3, and has some omega 6 and omega 9.
    So ideally, you need both to get all your omega's. If you eat salmon 3x a week, that should provide enough omega 3 & 9...but few people eat that much salmon.
