    I am a thallus in a carb rotation and I have a few very low carb days. I already do not eat carbs after 6. And I already do casein before bed. Should I add the BCAA on the low carb days to help produce GH while I sleep?

    bcaa's are to aid with nitrogen balance in the body for a constant anabolic state so your not wasting muscle they are great for protein synthesis mainly because of leucine which is a very good amino in my view, but as for bed you sleep for 6 maybe 8 hours or longer so you need a steady stream of amino's in your system this is why whey is no good for night time and bcaa's are not a great choice either because they are absorbed into the muscles fairly quickly i would say an hour give or take, but casein is perfect due to it taking a very long time to fully digest about 8 hours i believe with most products. some blends are better than others and some have more bang for your buck so its up to you hope this helps good luck...

    Great information! Is it cool to take casein mixed with whey post workout? I am eating basically every 2 - 3 hours. So would Whey be more productive during the day and post and pre workout? And leave the casein for bed?

    yes there are blends like what i mainly take syntha 6 by bsn it has whey and casein and others, to answer your question a faster protein like whey is good for the day breakfast lunch dinner ect. and casein is always for bed or if you cannot eat 6 meals a better protein in my opinon than whey is whey protein hydrolysate it is so broken down that it is basically pre digested so you dont feel full or bloated and its higher grade so no stomach pains

    hehheh, do you wanna? I spose depends...if you like the smell of roses, sure

    ....might possibly be a better set up than what I'm doing now, this only evolved as a way to increase overall cals in a day (which I tend to undereat generally, was an obese kid/teen, so fear of re-gaining fat)...I've been discovering that I really can eat more cals than I thought I could eat and not gain weight, even for having a desk job...
