I eat three 1gram capsules (of which 500mg of each capsule is EPA/DHA) with four of my meals. so I take 12 of these per day - I realize it's a lot but it works out just fine in my macro.

I'm not experiencing any anal leakage but my poo is very oily -- to the point where I can sometimes see tiny little oil bubbles in the toilet water after pooing. Am I at least absorbing most of the fish oil, if not all of it?
