    Whey and BCAA

    Is it cheaper to get protein powder with BCAA in it or buy whey and BCAA separately?

    Protein contains BCAA - BCAA is a part of protein. So you only need to buy protein.

    BCAAs are really useful during calorie deficits or fasted training.

    Care to explain? As long as the dose is low, it won't kick you out of a fasted state.

    If you are getting enough protein, supplementing with BCAAs is totally unnecessary.

    Supplementing with BCAAs is always a good idea regardless of your protein intake

    A) All protein has amino acids and most sources have all three branched chain aminos. If you're meeting your macro daily you're getting plenty of amino acids including leucine, isoleucine and valine.
    B) More != beneficial.
    C) Time and again supplementing free-form amino acids, of any type, orally has been shown to do dick in healthy individuals.
    D) Amino acids have calories, so yes, they would end a fasted state. Not that being fasted or otherwise means anything in the context of body comp goals.

    TLDR. Using free-form amino acids if redundant and pointless if you're meeting your macro. If you aren't meeting your macro, fix that with full-spectrum amino proteins.

    Ignore the trolls.

    Protein powder already has bcaas in it. Protein powders have all of the essential amino acids and non essential as well. Get a whey protein and you will get a pretty high dose of BCAA’s per serving.
