Fiber
Hello.  I currently take oil capsules, 3/day.  I also try to eat a high fiber diet.  I eat lots of oatmeal, beans, and usually a serving of metamucil every day (but admittedly not enough fruits/vegetables---but I'm working on it!).  My concern is how/when best to take my fish oils as my understanding is that fiber significantly reduces their absorption. In addition, the directions are to take the fish oils with a meal.  For better or worse, however, most of my meals are high fiber.  

How/when is it best to take the fish oil?  How long, for example, should I wait to take them after a breakfast of oatmeal, beans and eggs or a serving of metamucil to ensure optimal absorption?  I also prefer not to take them too late in the day as it interferes with my sleep.  Thanks for your help.
