    During exercise the body will use all of its energy sources in an effort to be able to sustain the workload placed upon it. Its our job to try and bring that into our favor which is why bcaas can have a positive impact. When glycogen stores are depleted the body will shift to a preferred fuel source, this is when bcaas come in handy. You will always have some sort of lean muscle loss, to what degree is impossible to tell. But yes bcaas will help in being anti-catabolic (Muscle sparring) during cardio.

    He will be using the animos as fuel, but not as a primary and exclusive fuel source as is suggested by your post when you said "if you drink them during your body uses them as fuel, instead of bodyfat" Like I said, it is very unreasonable to say that when you train or do cardio with bcaas, you will not burn any fat. And thats an understatement. However I believe we all have some info to bring to the table here and I agree with you that he most likely wont be burning off any muscle at this point, which is why I advised him to save his money.

    I appreciate all the advice from everyone, i was using bcaas because i was training fasted but i will no longer be doing that, so now its moot lol. I dont know if in truly 30% bf may be less but never been tested anyone have any visual cues that could help me guestimate better?

  4. A picture would help, but inbetween 20-30 it really is hard to tell a difference.

  5. When i get home ill post pics

  6. Its not letting me up load basically im getting the feeling that at thirty i would be trememndosly fat which im noy my gut doesnt hang like it used to my face doesnt have too much fat its rele my man boobs mid section and love handles that hold alot

  7. How much do you weigh and what is your bench, squat, and deadlift? If you really work hard with these movements along with cardio and your diet, then I'd assume you'd be obliterating the fat

    Well havin pushed my 1RM yet but dead lift was at 285 with a really bad form so excited to see how i am with good form, squat is 2 plates and a 25 for 3 and bench is embarrassing trying to build chest strenght i cant even get one plate up for more than one set of five

  9. If u look at my accountability thread im trying a new split that should really boost fat loss

  10. Add a protein shake

  11. not enough protein nor carbs. i would not take your calories any lower that 1800 being 250lbs.just up calories and train hard. once you stop dropping weight add in 30 mins cardio 3 days a week.make sure its the same amount of calories burned everytime.i do mine on a treadmill on incline(no holding onto treadmill). once you stop loosing weight i would add in a day and so on.once you got to 5 or 6 days then add 10 mins to those days simple way to do it
