Can fish oil increase the caloric expenditure? If so, by how much? I am looking for a way to increase my bmr by 500 calories.

Gain around 60lbs of LBM or ~170lbs of fat and your BMR will go up by 500.

There is no real method of increasing BMR as it's pretty much a "set" factor, you can increase RMR by having a high protein intake and resistance training, that's about it.

6'1", 158 lbs. Why would you want to increase your BMR?

6 wk of supplementation with FO significantly increased lean mass and decreased fat mass. These changes were significantly correlated with a reduction in salivary cortisol following FO treatment.Fish oil is now steroids.

What if I told you some things (food/supplements) have health benefits other than effecting your weight?

Spoiler alert: people take fish oil to receive the benefits of the fish oil, not to try and receive any sort of magical fat loss properties which do not exist.

You ever heard of that thing there called Google?

It works pretty darn good for answering the most basics of questions, so that you don't have to wait around for an internet forum to send a link doing something that should have taken you 2.5 seconds to do.

Lol you entitled ****.

Fish oil is possibly THE most beneficial supplement somebody can take and it isn't hard to find out why. It's linked to so many positives its a bit mind boggling we don't all take it religiously.

isn't this self admitted potential problem with the study kind of a big deal though?


A potential shortcoming of the present study was not using dietary records to monitor the subjects' intake during the study. Although there are several potential problems with the use of dietary records (for a review of inaccuracies with self-recorded diet records see [37]), they would have provided us with some insight into the dietary habits of the subjects during the study. It therefore remains a possibility that the fish oil supplements resulted in the subjects changing their normal dietary habits. Although increasing dietary fat does not generally cause a decrease in voluntary fat intake [38], it has been shown that fish oil may reduce appetite [39], which could have led to the subjects consuming less total calories during the study.

i mean, i have a bunch of fish oil in my freezer that's been there for at least a year or so, and i should probably finish it off, but i'm just curious about the study in question

answer courtesy of the misc:


600 mg DHA and EPA can increase calorie expenditure 35% for sure. It's better than DNP and won't kill you like it did Zyzz (RIP).

So just take 10 pills and it will increase calorie expenditure 350% and reduce your bodyfat to sub 6% in under 2 weeks.

Well nothing magical but some fat loss properties do seem to exist.

So eat your fatty fish or take fish oil.

Fatty fish like salmon and sardines have the added benefit of supplying good amounts of protein and micronutrients like vitamin D which seems to help with building muscle.

I can't tell.

Omega 3 has too many benefits not eat fish. So even if the body composition benefits aren't worth it I would still be eating my fish.
