I recently read CT’s recommendation for BCAA intake as .2 grams/pound of body weight (I hope I didn’t misquote and I’m only using CT as an example as it was the last thing I read. The quote is only used as an example).
That would be 40 grams of BCAA for a 200 pound individual. My question is this: If a person eats a very strict food regimen, meaning that every gram of protein, carbohydrates and fat are monitored daily and changed depending if their body weight fluctuates up or down (losing fat / gaining muscle), would those 40 grams be subtracted from their total daily protein requirements as those 40 grams are considered protein on the bottle.
I would assume so based on the idea that if they were not subtracted your calories would be higher than your daily allowance which may cause your weight to stabilize or go up which would be bad if you were trying to shed those last few pounds of fat.
Same idea with fish oils. For every gram of fish oil i would assume that you would subtract those grams from your total daily fat requirements.
