Personally though, I like Xtend, BC+EAA and Purple Wraath. At some point maybe I'll do bulk and crystal light, but I've got a stash to burn through first.

Bulk is the way to go. I get my BCAA and creatine in bulk form that way I can get exactly the amount I want. I mix a scoop of BCAA into my pre-workout drink, and a scoop of each in some 0 calorie sports drink for during my workouts.

In my post I was just responding to your comment about BCAA being a "waste of money" by showing that there are documented benefits of consuming amino acids before a workout -- that's all.
But yes, I hear that leucine also works well by itself and is considerably cheaper.

The question is that IMO, not works well itself, WORKS Better!!
Just my opinion, maybe some don't agree. Nevertheless, there are a lot of different options nowadays! Bulk rules

Wow this thread has really exploded since I subbed! Great to see so much interest and open-mindedness with this diet.
I have to go back and read to catch up but looks like a great discussion going on here about amino consumption
This is my fasting mix and I usually have 3 of them before breaking my fast

Today is the my first day on IF. I actually got more sleep than I normally do last night, but I still feel very out of it in this fasted state. I feel like I am not thinking as clearly or as quickly as I usually am plus I just have that overwhelmingly tired feeling. I know I read somewhere that you may experience more energy etc in the fasted state so I am curious as to why I feel so tired. Does my body just have to adjust first since it is used to having food by now? Something like switching to a CKD diet or something. Initial lethargy followed by my body adapting to its new routine. Thanks.

Search on google for grehlin.
It will take same time for your body adapt for your new eating schedule. Since it is adapted, it is very normal you will only feel hungry near the normal hour you eat.
Since when you are fasted there is more catecholamines, any type of stim will be a lot more potent.
Normally i start my day with a big cup of coffee. Then i have 4-5 hours of work without any hungry, but near 12 i became with the feeling i have to so, this is my window starting.
Make sure to not UNDEReat doing intermittent fasting lyfestyle. I easily come to undereating and then the results sucks! So keep an eye on your calories/macros.

Yeah, when I attempted paleo I underate the first few days and ended up where I started eating close to half a jar of peanut or almond butter a day just to make calories

There are very good choices for fasting! Even if you can start with higher calories, dependent by person.
A big lunch that is full of veggies and a lot of fat and protein.
the thing becomes someone who have to eat a 2k dinner:
- 400g ~1lb of lean meat/fish (around 100g protein ~400kcal)
- 250g of brown rice (around 200g of carbs ~800kcal)
And after looking this huge dish and we think? "it is still missing more then 500kcal to fill the budget lol"
So it is easy to undereat, even on feeding window!!
