This Week 3 Guide is for our Clean Cuisine 8 Week Clean Eating Challenge. You will be using this guide throughout the third week of the challenge and it will be available for you to reference.
Since this guide is intended for the entire first week, some items on this guide may not make sense until you arrive at the intended day. Please don’t jump ahead. Not everything on this page will be for everyone.
Take your time to go through some of our recommendations and as always, let us know if you have any questions.

DAY 23: OMEGA-3 EPA/DHA RECOMMENDATIONS
We recommend you supplement with at least 2,000 milligrams of combined EPA and DHA daily. If you have an inflammatory condition such as multiple sclerosis, asthma, or fibromyalgia, you should take 3,000 milligrams daily. Look for a pharmaceutical-grade fish oil that undergoes molecular distillation, ultra-filtration, and purity testing by an independent third-party testing organization.
Freshness is a key factor in choosing a high-quality fish oil. Keep in mind, the omega-3 fats in fish can oxidize easily if not handled properly, and oxidized oils can potentially be very harmful. Any fishy taste is a tip-off that your fish oil supplement isn’t up to snuff in the freshness department. If your fish oil supplement has a fishy taste you absolutely don’t want to take it.
