XTend BCAA's 1 scoop = 12.8g's if you brake it down the other stuff in the NEW formula it can be overlooked its so low
but that 12.8g's would be 12.8g's added to your protein macro's.

SO in example your protein macro grams are 150g's (per say) for the day, and you hit them right on but then you take 1 scoop of Xtend 3 times a day you are in reality getting 188.4 protein macro grams per day.

A little higher than your target.

PLUS BCAA's has no cal count but is a pro macro count.
I hear ya Rich, your exhortations are one reason I am picking up a digital scale in the coming days. My current scale is not too reliable with the light weights like that of the MPR mini scoop.
