Counting the Cals in BCAA's?


Should i count the additional cals in bcaa's when writing my diet? The cals in the bcaa's in MAG-10 and Anaconda are not counted? also what about Lecine?


I wouldn't worry about it. How many are you taking a day 5 g, 10 g, 15 g? Pretty neglible IMO.


Man that's some classic analysis paralysis. Right up there with carbs from broccoli.

Don't worry about the cals in BCAAs.


4kcal per gram of bcaa.
