One thing that has helped with eating carbs and staying energized is timing them around my workout and only having them on training days. Basically what john meadows does.
But to answer your thread yes I do feel they help I mix them in with 32oz of coconut juice and another 32oz of water and drink throughout my workout. Hope this helps man
Not at all man! Apologies if it came off that I was offended.
This whole Modified Paleo and Keto style diet seems to be working for me for the most part, losing weight slowly but that's how I wanted it. Taking a lot of willpower and patience which is something I don't have with weight considering past eating disorders.
I haven't had any issue with the stength thing, in fact I am stronger than ever and appear to be getting bigger but losing fat? Whatever is happening with it I'm going to keep it up cause it's working lol.
I use carbs around my workout, but not all the time. Normally only around one of my workouts, I'm using fats as my workout fuel for the most part and it's working. Only having like 15g carbs before workouts at most.
I think I'll give them a go, it's just a case of finding a not too expensive BCAA powder in the UK! Not an easy task!
