    Leucine And Insulin Spike


    If I'm taking bcaas throughout the day does that mean I'm constantly getting an insulin spike. I'm on a low gi diet so I'm not trying to spike insulin much just post workout.

    To a certain extent, yes it does. Whey protein spikes insulin, so do BCAAs. Check out Datbtrue's forum, it talks a lot about leucine and low carb/gi diets.
