BCAA's and Fat Loss

  1. BCAA's and Fat Loss


    Should BCAA's be avoided late at night due to their insulin response. I have been taking Xtend throughout the day including PM but I read that this can cause an insulin response that leads to greater fat storage, just as carbs do at night. Is this true and do you think BCAA's should or shouldn't be avoided at night?


  2. The only time I avoid taking them is Pre cardio in a fasted state.

    No need to worry about the insulin/carbs at night/fat gain thing. It's baloney. Excess unused calories over time will lead to fat gain.
