The norm for most bodybuilders is to supplement their diet with some form of protein powder. Duh right. Generally, whey protein isolate seems to be the majority choice. I have read about those interested in cutting calories switching to Essential Amino Acids which have almost no calories. The question is, do EAA's carry the same potency as a protein powder for muscle growth? And what is the ratio...eg. how many grams of EAA = how many grams of whey protein isolate? Is it gram for gram? I was hoping this has already been researched and someone has some science (layman's terms) to support it.
