I would. After all, a log is recording what you do so that you can relate what you did to what you achieved.
In FitDay, for example, just create a custom food with the total number of grams of protein.
That is a lot of grams of protein now that I look at it.[/quote]
Yeah I did that, I have the desktop version of FitDay. Tons of protein in a relatively small time frame; exactly why I asked. It would be a little more than half my daily intake (300g) which seems like a lot because that would mean I could only eat 150 grams of protein the rest of the day. After eating tons of whole food protein for a long time I crave it and I don’t get full without it. Anyway, here’s what I’m thinking during reading this post:
Count the whey isolate as protein
count the calories from glutamine/glycine/bcaas/leucine, but not as a specific macronutrient. the reason for this being they are serving the purpose of carbs and if they have relatively the same effect as carbs then my body would recognize them as carbs not as protein per se. Thoughts anyone? Thanks for the reply.
I may just say fuck it and only count the whey and see how that goes. Part of me is saying count it because obviously that’s the point of a food log, but part of me says how can a person gain fat from an albeit large whey/amino acid/creatine drink? Only way to find out is to experiment. I wonder if Bill Roberts might have any thoughts on this?
