New discovery : BCAA and lose fat

                                                     BCAAS & FAT LOSS

The effects of BCAA intake on fat loss is something that has only been explored in more recent years. Newer research is showing that BCAAs can have a positive effect on fat loss. This doesn’t mean you can eat pizza at every meal with a side of BCAAs and the fat will just melt away though. BCAAs seem to maximize fat loss when one is already on a fat loss diet. On any fat loss diet, carbohydrates will need to be lowered to some degree. It seems that BCAAs ability to spare glycogen and increase insulin sensitivity may play a role in speeding up the results of a fat loss plan.

BCAAs should also be used as a supplement during any fat loss plan because of the muscle preserving effects. On any calorie restricted plan muscle tissue loss is a serious concern that must be addressed. All of the positive effects that BCAAs have on muscle growth will also serve to protect muscle during periods of calorie restriction. It is always important to remember that anything which builds muscle will also preserve muscle.


BCAA DOSAGES

The most important times to ingest BCAA’s are times are before, during, and after training. Here are effective dosages for intake around training.

BODYWEIGHT AND BCAA INTAKE

less - 3 grams before, during, and after training.
more - 5 grams before, during, and after training.

Although before, during and after training is the most important time to take in BCAA’s there are other times of the day that they are of use. For extra benefit BCAA’s can be taken throughout the day in addition to the BCAA’s taken around training time. This will further increase protein synthesis and reduce muscle tissue breakdown.

BODYWEIGHT AND BCAA INTAKE

150 lbs. or less - 10 grams before, during, and after training.
151 lbs. or more - 15 grams before, during, and after training.
This dosage should be split up throughout the day and taken at breakfast, between meals, and before bed.
