    Whey protein powder to bulk BCAA conversion


    I ran out of protein powder that I use for my post-workout shake. I tend to take 2 scoops, roughly 50g of whey protein isolate in that shake. I have a kilo of Nutraplanets' Bulk BCAA powder, 10g BCAA per scoop. Is there a conversion ratio for the two? For example, 10g BCAA = 20g protein powder?

    You shouldn't be replacing your protein with BCAA's. You should be combining them.

    No one's replacing anything. I ran out of whey powder and until my new order comes in, I'm looking to see how many scoops of these BCAA's are equivilent to what I was taking.

    Ok, well I don't quite understand what you're asking. Are you taking calorie wise?

    50g whey powder = Xg BCAA

    Is there any sort of rough conversion?

    Perhaps a more refined question is, what would the appropriate amount of BCAA's be to take post workout, should one want to supplement with them alone, rather than a whey protein powder shake?
