This is a brief article to describe the potential positive effects of BCAA’s for fat loss.
Good supplements should be designed with effectiveness in mind. The physical components of essential amino acids are easily digestible using powder or capsule BCAA supplements. Many BCAA supplements contain little or no calories so it will add nutrient density to a calorie restricted diet.
Burning fat on a calorie restricted diet
This specific combination of essential amino acids provide energy and clean burning muscle nutrients.
Fat loss on a caloric restricted diet is more likely to be successful when it is low in sugar, alcohol, and processed foods. You should be plant strong as well.
When to take BCAA
There are several occasions but the best bang for the buck is around the workout period. So…
1. Take BCAA before/during/or/after the workout. I would take it about 15-30 minutes prior to a workout to let it digest. If I knew my workout was going to be long (more than 75 minutes), then I would sip on it to improve fitness gains.
2. During short eating windows and diet, BCAA can be a life saving nutrient for the good cells. In other words, say you decide to eat only between a 10 hour period in the day — you would probably lose weight. By consuming the BCAA’s during time of fasting (the other 14 hours), you will preserve cells which are capable of signaling the fat burning process. And let the fat burn baby.
