Considering some intermittent fasting b/c it seems to be pretty popular on here, and I watched something on it and it claimed it helps to detox the body (Uri Haufmekler, or something similar).
My question, The guys who do it, do you use BCAA’s in the morning or no?
If so, how much are you taking, and how often are you doing this?[/quote]
Why would you not take BCAAs while IF’ing? It’s hardly any calories if any and it could only help.[/quote]
IDK, i dont know enough about (IF), my fault for not looking it up more thoroughly before posting, but For health perspectives it my have doing to do with introducing any kind of nutrient to the system and altering hormone levels (I remember hearing even BCAA’s cause small rises in insulin, cut-off/alter HGH levels, etc), be doing this maybe negate the benefit of detoxing, idk.
I think if I do try (IF) I will most definitively use BCAA’s, I’m just trying to get a feel for the whole idea…Previously the idea of skipping or holding off breakfast would seem very counterproductive to me for muscle and/or body comp.
So to ask more directly, how much do you take when you do it?
