    No that's impossible to tell. Instead of focussing on the amount of calories one would need to focus on actual weight change. This should ideally be measured with a 7 day moving average (also known...

    One thing that people may be overlooking is that someone can go from 170 pounds 12% to 180 pounds while staying at 12%.

    170 lb 12% is 20.4 pounds of fat.

    180 lb 12% is 21.6 pounds of fat.

    I already mentioned EAAs are more expensive in post #35. I'll quote it:




    Not sure where you read that but it's not something I wrote here. However, I will say that if you're maxing out MPS...

    There's no contradiction there but at this point I think there's no point in continuing down that road. I'll get back to my main point:

    Not only do I claim that gram for gram EAAs are more potent...

    It can definitely work well. Anyone who claims differently isn't aware of the science on the topic. And the claim that it would lead to slower progress isn't backed up by science.

    Here are some...

    Even that hasn't been shown in a study.



    You just need to make sure you're eating enough to make consistent progress on your lifts on a good program.

    That was a good point. Arguing that adding whey protein is somehow superior to adding EAAs wasn't.

    If you know the literature you won't need me to supply the references for what I'm saying.

    Of course. No one disagrees with that.



    Well you're entitled to your opinion but your opinion on this matter isn't science based. The evidence shows that 10 gram EAAs and 20 gram whey protein...

    Perhaps the narrative that it's derived from a plant in South America and the Indians (or should I say native Americans) used to love it. It does have some micronutrients though.

    I just read blue...

    Agave is one sweetener I would recommend against. It's very high on fructose.

    You're better off with plain sugar or honey.

    Sure. MyProtein Impact Whey sells a flavourless version. I quite like it.

    The chart actually shows low whey + high leucine did as well as high whey. BCAAs were useless though, which was the reason I posted it.

    The study can be found here:...

    FYI: 10 gram of EAAs produces about the same MPS response as 20 gram protein from whey.

    That comparison doesn't hold water. Gram for gram EAAs are actually more effective than whey in the context of muscle gain. They're also more expensive so I'd still recommend whey instead, just take...

    No it's not. It's actually probably better to have at least 4 hours between meals.

    When having the whey again I was thinking to myself 'this isn't vanilla, it tastes more like the Halo Top Birthday Cake Ice Cream'.

    So I had a look at the ingredients of Halo Top. Sure enough:...

    It's ok if the rest of your diet is sound; over 500 grams of vegetables & fruit per day, >35 gram fiber per day, reaching micro and macronutrient targets etc.

    Well we're in disagreement on that one. When you're supplementing all 9 EAAs in sufficient dosage you won't need to eat as much protein. At least that's what the research I've seen supports. If you...
