Intermittent Fasting and BCAA

#1 Postby Nixie » Sun Mar 03, 2013 5:58 pm

Hi,
I'm currently doing intermittent fasting, AKA LeanGains, and was wondering if anyone uses a 10g BCAA supplement that is vegan sourced and not in pill form. Is there a clear drink out there like Cellucor that is NOT from milk or whey? I take Vega Protein after but need a carbless one for my fasted training.

Would sincerely appreciate the help!

Thanks, Nixie

Are you absolutely sure you need a carbless protein supplement?
I'm not doubting you, but could you explain why? As far as I know(that is not that much) your body will use protein the same way it would use the carbs, am I wrong there?

It uses the free form amino acids like carbs, but without the calories. So your insulin does not spike, so you are getting the same effects of staying fasted. I found one and use AminoClear now. It's organic and sweetened with stevia, so no carbs.
