    There's no metabolic advantage to eating multiple meals. Bodybuilders first started adding a meal to get enough protein/calories in. The supplement industry turned this into a myth of needing to eat every few hours.

    So spiking MPS, say, 4 times per day will give you zero benefit over 2 times per day?

    If doing a 16/8 window, one could use BCAA once or twice during the fasting window and get the same results. You're only 'fasting' 8h out of the normal day, two doses (0h, 4h) of BCAA should keep MPS elevated enough. Three would be ideal.

Usually I would workout at 4-5 and break the fast following my workout.. Now I am working out more around 10 am-12noon. But don't want to eat / don't have time until 5pm still. How should I go about this? Aminos pre and post workout? And keep same eating window?
    I'd go with Amino's pre and intra and 20g whey iso post. Yes it'll create a monophasic insulin spike, but it won't do much to break the fast.

    10 grams of BCAA before and after fasted training is also a good way to make sure you preserve your muscle mass.
