Stop Taking BCAAs If You Want the Benefits of FastingDon’t worry about your precious muscle. The body is wicked smart and resilient, and it will adapt accordingly. That’s right, BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) are ranked high as one of the most commonly “incorrectly” prescribed supplement for fasting. But have any of the bro scientists ever given you a good reason as to why you should be using BCAAs? Reasons other than “it will protect your muscle bro.” I get it, I know where the emphasis on BCAAs comes from. It’s from programs like lean gains and carb backloading, which then trickle down to consumers, bloggers, and even coaches everywhere.
