    Would BCAA's count as protien? If so, would it count gram for gram? Is it worth tracking?

    BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. And are not considered a complete protein sorce. I would not count them in with my macros.

    Yea I REALLY like that site. I've been using it for about a month now. I "thought" I was eating pretty good before hand. It showed me I wasn't eating near enough. I was getting lots of protien, but not enough carbs. Only reason I was getting enough protien was from all the shakes I was drinking.

    how are you guys taking your BCAA's? they are so hydrophobic.

    or are you guys gonna tell me to man up and throw 10g in my mouth and just down it with water?

    I put 10 grams in a 20 ounce bottle filled with crystal light and drink it during wo. Most of it dissolves. That first drink can be kinda nasty though.

    I put another 10 grams in my post wo shake. Cant taste them a bit in it.

    I've tried to do the whole throwing in mouth thing a few times but with terrible results. I've found that they best work with 20oz of water or even 16oz (per 10g-15g), shake vigirously for a couple minutes then let sit for 45mins-1hour. I've found they dissolved best in this manner.

    Problems mixing bulk BCAAs and their taste can be conquered with EXCELL.

    If you do the following it is easy to mix up.

    Place 16 ounces water in shaker bottle
    Add EXCELL
    Leave in refrigerator 20 minutes
    Shake

    You will be all set. A nice subtle flavor with no after taste. Also has no sickly sweet taste either.

    If anyone would like a taste test to see how well it mixes and tastes just send me an email at info@chemistry.com

    Thanks BP nice of you to say. 5 kilos hmmmm well at half a kilo a day I will be looking for your order next week.

    BTW I think the cost of EXCELL is about the same as Bulk BCAAs with some Vit B6 to help absorbtion and of course it is flavored

    I agree. Bought like 10 kilo's long before you had that stuff. (tax return )

    I only go through roughly 300g's a week so,.... make sure to still have some in 16 weeks.

    Damn delicious is correct, addicting flavor and results. BCAA's should be a staple in everyones daily regimen. The results I am having from bcass's is something else.
