    BCAA during Intermittent Fasting

    From what I've read, BCAA raises ur insulin levels, and i've heard not to take BCAA's during fasting periods.

    But is this true?
    I'm on a cut and would like to preserve more LBM
    Could i possibly take BCAAs during the 10-12 hour mark or something?

    I take a serving or 2 of BCAA whenever I'm hitting up cardio first thing on empty.
    Seems to be effective in preserving LBM.

    By the way, are you really 167 lbs. in your AVI? just curious.

    Insulin response to BCAAs is insignificant. Insulin is not your enemy. Please read the leangains blog for further details.

    BCAA is used before fasted workouts to prevent catabolism.

    There is no need to take anything during the 16 hour fast provided that
    - your final meal is solid and has lots of slow digesting protein
    - you are not attempting a ridiculous calorie defecit. Slow and steady wins the race - and is far less likely to cause hormone problems.

    Aside from casein protein, isn't all regular solid food slow digesting enough?

    Nice. looking lean and mean bro.
    Yeah, or you can split the dose into two or take 1 serving breakfast and another before/during workout. See how it works out and adjust accordingly.
    Gluck!

    If you eat a large meal late which includes veggies then probably yes. If like me, you eat earlier in the evening, you need something like cottage cheese. Liquid calories do seem to digest quicker but casein is the best option if you can't stand cottage cheese.
