    Xtend's caloric value?


    Seeing as it's BCAA's at roghly 10g per serve, it's gotta have some calories to consider. Anyone know?

    yeah unless I missed it they don't have a company forum spot, and NP sells Xtend and their whey in 10lb units, so I'm kinda surprised.

    BCAA's have less than one calorie per gram so they are not required to list it on the package. But it is very close to one calorie per gram. So if your adding it into your daily totals, you can count it as one calorie per gram of BCAA.

    Ah, that's good to know. I'm not counting cals THAT closely, but still good to know.

    that's great to know, that's a reason to consider BCAA's valid over a simple protein shake, as you can get loads of specific aminos while on a cut without seriously using up your daily calorie limit.

    I think if you lick a stamp, the adhesive is 3 calories. I read that somewhere.

    That's in calories, unlike kilocalories which everything else is actually measured in...or something like that. I think

    BTW, why you riding dirty w/o an avi Reap? That's unlike you.

    It depends on the postage class. The Post Office uses splenda to make no-calorie glue as an incentive to use the more expensive first class postage. Second class postage stamps use sugar, and therefor have more calories.

    I've heard that BCAA's are the same, calorically as protein and carbohydrates. 4 calories/ gram. I have also heard some very passionate arguements against this, so let's not debate it because honestly it doesn't matter. Find any fat person and ask them if BCAAs are what caused the problem.





    Here, I'll just tell you-- no, BCAAs are not what caused the problem.

    It does matter to me though, if the calories are more or less the same, then there's really no point in paying the high cost of BCAA's IMO vs. a typical jug of whey. whey would give you a fair amount of BCAA's along with all the other aminos. Would you pay just under $40 for a little less than 2.5 lbs of protein? If there's a significant calorie difference between a BCAA supplement and your typical protein powder, then the cost would be more justified, for me. While you'd be getting less amino diversity, if you're on a calorie restricted diet BCAA supplementation might be more beneficial.

    Im fairly certain that its less than one calorie per gram. If it was the same as protein, at 4 calories per gram supp companies would be required to have the caloric value on the label. Since its less than one calorie per gram they dont have to, because by definition it would be calorie free. Same as when a product is labeled as fat free, it does have some fat sometimes, its just less than 1 gram per serving, so they are allowed to call it fat free.
