    Counting calories on RecoverPro


    4:1:1 equaling 6 grams . 6 times 4=24 grams protein?

    so does one scoop Recoverpro equal 24 grams protein?

    I ask because I count all my calories and want to be exact.

    In for this.

    I've seen multiple arguments both ways and have yet to be convinced one way or the other

    I don't understand - why would 6 grams of BCAA's equal 24 grams of protein. Why are you multiplying by 4?

    I do not know. For some reason and I have no idea, why have been assuming one scoop of RecoverPro equals 25 grams protein, maybe because a protein powder serving does.

    do you know if one scoop needs to be counted as 6 grams protein?

    I was counting one scoop. I take on average about that four scoops per day currently

    6 g of bcaas, is 6g protein.

    therefor 24 calories, your having about 100 calories worth a day, negligable, but if your dieting count it toward protein intake.
