I have just started using Udo's oil last night my husband has been using it for a while but just wanted to know if anyone else is using it and if they have felt any benefit or improvement since using it and if so how long it took? Maybe i am impatient as after trying it last night i expected my run last night to be greatly improved fair enough i shaved 4 minutes of my time.
Has it made a difference to you?
Udo's what now?
I'll take a punt on anything that takes 4 mins off my time
I was thinking the same thing Dan... Udos Oil... what's that then???
4 mins... blimey I'm happy if I shave 4 secs off... lol
sorry but this made me giggle
The ultimate source of omega 3, 6 & 9 and the UK's market leading nutritional oil blend as recommended by two of the UK's most recognised nutritionists, Dr Gillian McKeith in her 14 day detox diet and Patrick Holford in his new book
Recognised! Gillian McKeith
yes for looking like a walnut, not for being a Nutritionist
So "it" took 4 mins off your "time"?, just what is your "time"?, 4mins off a mile?, off 10 miles?
Sounds like a load of rollocks to me, and as for "Dr" Gillian.........
Are you sure its called Udo's oil and not snake oil?
The ultimate source of omega 3, 6 & 9 and the UK's market leading nutritional oil blend as recommended by two of the UK's most recognised nutritionists, Dr Gillian McKeith in her 14 day detox diet and Patrick Holford in his new book, The Holford Diet. Udo's Choice delivers a balanced 2:1:1 ratio of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) omega 3 and 6, and the beneficial fatty acid omega 9. It is a unique blend of certified organic flax, sunflower and sesame oils, with unrefined oils from the germs of rice and oats, evening primrose oil and non GM lecithin. FREE 7-day pack of Beyond Greens!!
Hmmm... OK, ignoring the fact that "Dr" Gillian McKeith isn't allowed to call herself a doctor any more cos she picked up her degree from a dodgy outfit, I don't see how incorporating a healthy blend of fatty-acid rich oil into your diet will suddenly make you run faster. And there are much cheaper ways of eating healthy fat. This stuff costs 16.95 for 500ml!
no you really should look it up on the net it has been around for a while and like i said bobybuilders use it to boost energy.
as i am only 6 weeks back into running don't laugh at my time but saturday we did 5.3 miles in 58.23 and yesterday we did the exact same route and did it in 54.17.
Hi Laura - Udo's oil has been around for ages - my pal has been taking it for years.
I tried some last year because Udo's book was one of the text books for my nutrition course and I thought I'd sample one of his products. I didn't really get on with it, probably because my diet contains all the good fats I need and I think it overloaded my system and I also found I prefer to take my fats separately, rather than in one gulp. It would be helpful to use an emulsifier when using Udo's oil in order to help your body absorb the nutrients from it properly or mix it with other things - but I didn't find it tasted good enough to mix.
I'd recommend getting your good fats in other ways such as from nuts and seeds or in home-made salad dressings.
My mate swears by Udo's oil. Personally, if you have a healthy diet and eat plenty of seeds and nuts (as you're a vegan) then you really don't need to buy expensive things like this.
It's just my opinion though and if it works for you, then stick with it.
