Should You Take EAAs or BCAAs If You Can’t Meet Your Daily Protein Quota?

Yeah, you should probably take some EAAs, or BCAAs if you don’t have EAAs available. But why not just us a protein powder, which is just as easy to consume and often less pricey?

Because you don’t want to break a fast before training?

There’s really no difference between EAAs and protein powder, as both have the same metabolic effects on the body.

But EAAs and BCAAs don’t have calories, right?

Nope, every amino acid provides an average of 4 Calories per gram, just like protein powder. However, the FDA doesn’t require amino acid supplements to show their calorie content because they aren’t complete proteins. They still have calories, but companies won’t display them because they don’t have to.
