At the same time, consumption of animal foods high in Omega-3 is the lowest it has ever been. Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids are called polyunsaturated because they have many double bonds (poly = many). Put simply, a diet that is high in Omega-6 but low in Omega-3 increases inflammation, while a diet that includes balanced amounts of each reduces inflammation (2). The problem today, is that people who eat a typical Western diet are eating way too many Omega-6s relative to Omega-3s. Not only are people eating much less Omega-3, but they are eating large amounts of processed seed- and vegetable oils, which are loaded with Omega-6. We simply didn’t have the technology to process these oils until about a 100 years ago and we have NOT had time to genetically adapt to these high amounts of Omega-6.
You can see on this graph the dramatic increase in soybean oil consumption in the USA, from zero to 11 kilograms (24 pounds) per person per year. Soybean oil is currently the biggest source of Omega-6 fatty acids in the USA, because it is really cheap and found in all sorts of processed foods.
In the graph below, you can see how the amount of Omega-6 fatty acids found in body fat stores has increased by more than 200% (3-fold) in the past 50 years alone.
There have been several controlled trials where people replaced saturated fats with Omega-6 fats and had a significantly increased risk of heart disease (6, 7, 8). A high Omega-6 intake is also associated with violence and depression (12, 13), while Omega-3s improve all sorts of mental disorders like depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (14, 15, 16). Another problem with a high Omega-6 intake is the fact that the double bonds in the fatty acid molecules are very reactive.
Bottom Line: Consumption of vegetable oils high in Omega-6 has increased dramatically in the past 100 years. The single most important thing you can do to reduce your Omega-6 intake is to avoid processed seed- and vegetable oils high in Omega-6, as well as the processed foods that contain them.


You can see that butter, coconut oil, lard, palm oil and olive oil are all relatively low in Omega-6. Nuts and seeds are pretty high in Omega-6, but they are whole foods that have plenty of health benefits and are absolutely fine to eat. Bottom Line: The most important thing you can do to reduce Omega-6 intake is to eliminate processed vegetable oils from your diet, as well as processed foods that contain them.
This reduces the Omega-3 content, so the polyunsaturated fats in the meat are mostly Omega-6 (19, 20). It is also best to buy pastured or Omega-3 enriched eggs, which are much higher in Omega-3 compared to eggs from hens that were fed grain-based feeds. By far the best and healthiest way to increase your Omega-3 intake is to eat seafood once or twice per week. Most people are storing immense amounts of Omega-6 fatty acids in their body fat stores and it can take years to get rid of them.
Eat plenty of Omega-3 rich animals, including something from the sea at least once or twice a week. One of the ways our diets have changed dramatically from the diets of our ancestors and even the very recent past is the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in the food we eat. So the best way to improve the balance on omega 6 to omega 3 is to reduce omega 6 as much as possible. Most paleo eaters are aware of the need to decrease omega 6, however my observation is that following the eating guidelines does not automatically mean people reduce omega 6 enough. Following that is a table of fish and seafood showing the omega 3 content per 100 grams of fish, make sure you add in enough omega 3 to give you around a 2:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3. Note: There is a lot of variation in the measurement of omega 6 and 3 content in foods, depending on the food the animal is fed, the food sample measured, variation in fat content between animals etc. An extensive list of seafood and Omega 3: Content Omega 3 fatty acid content of fish and seafood.


KIM-2 ( Keep It Managed, ver.2) contains eicosanoid-related data with the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acid contents of over 9,000 food servings . This website Omega-6 Fat News & Commentary by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD, is devoted to this subject only and has a continuous feed of new studies.
It is probably a bad idea to eat tons of Omega-6, then a whole lot of Omega-3 to compensate. If you want to bring your intake of Omega-6 down as much as possible, then it makes sense to choose the leaner portions of those meats.
Of course some omega 6 is essential as it is needed as a building block for eicosanoid hormones. KIM sorts and identifies foods with relatively high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids that help produce desired tissue fatty acid compositions as estimated from published metabolic data.
Omega 6 fats are primarily converted into a range of pro- inflammatory hormones and omega 3 into anti-inflammatory hormones. The other is to minimise omega 6 and increase the omega 3 just enough to give an ideal balance. When we bring the total amount of omega 6 in our diets down, we can then easily add fish (like salmon and sardines) or fish oil to get the ideal ratio between omega 3 and 6.
Omega 6 oils should be replaced by those containing predominantly mono-unsaturated fat like olive, avocado and macadamia nut oil, and saturated fats like coconut oil. Oxidation is a problem, I choose fish oil I know has been tested for oxidation, and smells and tastes fresh and clean. You would easily get that just be eating meat and seafood, let alone adding nuts or oils) Current thoughts are to focus on total amounts consumed each day not the ratio in different foods.
