Calories every day and exercising 4 times a week (burning 400 - 450 calories). Will i maintain weight?

I am 21 male. 143 pounds. Should i be taking omega 3 pills? What do they do for me? I've been taking them for a week now 2 per day.

Better to eat oily wild-caught fish eg tuna, salmon & trout. Mackerel too but it's too strong & fishy for most tastes. Quality of omega 3 is important but difficult to determine. Don't forget overall nutrition & exerci. ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks pregnant & I've been losing my mucus plug for a week or so & having fairly regular & painful contractions. Is labor imminent?

I drink more than 3 drinks per day on average (working on cutting down). I took 1 325mg Acetaminophen pill this morning at 8AM. Any concerns of OD?

No: Even small amounts of alcohol daily may affect the liver and while taking acetaminophen of that amount may not cause an overdose, it may be dangerous for you if you have liver problems. I commend you on your effort to cut down,but more help may be needed. Your local AA is a good place to start for excellent support.
