EAA's with Food

I am curious how many guys here have actually tried it to know what a difference it does or doesn't bring to them? By that I mean 10-20g EAA's drank approx 5 times daily between meals. You are talking about 10 scoops of most EAA products spread throughout the day. I doubt many people have even tried it. We can read what difference it should make and many totally dismiss it as well but I also think it's just something people have to have a good attempt at over months to see the difference. Again it's by no means essential and guys can win the O using no supps at all. However it can be useful especially for guys who want to take in more aminos throughout the day but struggle to attain that through extra whole foods. The same could be said for a small whey isolate shake between all meals like I previously posted. Take a guy who is consuming a standard bb diet (let's say 5 decent meals per day totalling 450g carbs, 250g protein and 100g fat) and on cycle and training hard etc. Just adding in that extra 100g protein spread in mini shakes could make a noticeable difference to his overall recovery and look without him needing to eat more and it just goes in his water in between meals.

I did this for prep in 2018 and 19
I constantly drank EAAs (sometimes BCAAs) between my feedings.
Tasted good and I felt it was good anti-catabolic insurance.

During my nutritional science class the professor told us that it amino acid supplementation must be consumed on an empty stomach though I don't remember the scientific reasoning behind that.

I get a bit tired of the constant notion of "just eat food" which for many is not feasible at certain parts of the day. Imagine if your a loan specialist at a bank, sitting in front of a client many people wouldn't object to you sipping from a shake, but pull out a meal prep and start forking food in to your mouth they would likely take offense to this, just as one example.

I myself have gastric issues, diagnosed as gurd, in fact the VA rates my stomach issues alone at 60% disability, years of MRE's takes a toll.

The best shake combination that I have found for myself is to combine Greek Yogurt with protein powder. I make a large batch smoothie in the morning a just refrigerate, or store in a cooler, few seperate shaker bottles. Adding in fresh, or even frozen, pinneapple also helps stomach comfort due to enzymes.
Probiotics provide a huge benefit. Say if I have a 10 minute break I will spend that time eating kosher sauerkraut, and then sip the smoothie as I return to work.

For EAA, that is an option and I try and shoot for 20 grams per serving.

If I have the available funds I add Peptopro to just just a few ounces of water and just shoot that down. I found this works better that EAAs but is more expensive.

Yes and no. Serrano has done studies that showed 10 g of EAA's had the same anabolic effect as 40 g of protein. I guess I wasn't clear enough in my original post so I'll put it another way:

Could someone eating 250 g of protein a day lower it to something like 180 g (I'm just using an arbitrary number), but consume more standalone EAA's that it would be like they were still eating 250 g?

Do you have these studies or links?

I'm going to bet the only tested MPS and not MPB.

In this instance (overall anabolism) a large mixture of complete proteins is going to be favourable over only 9 EAAs to ward off MPB.

Can EAA's be consumed with foods? I've decided to ditch the whey and protein shakes in general. I was only having two a day, but want to use EAA's in place of them. My intra will be mixed with other supplements and only in water like I have been for a while. Since my EAA's are blueberry flavored, I was thinking of making a morning shake and combining them with blueberries, almond milk, and avocado. Are there any absorption issues by having them with whole foods? Probably a dumb question, but I just wanted to clarify if for some reason it's preferred to have them on an empty stomach with only water.

Also, is it generally accepted that 10 g of EAA roughly equals 40 g of protein and contains 40 calories?

is fine
take em as you prefer
i dont do so personally but i get plenty from whole foods
i have my parents take 2 tablets of humapro with their meals
then again i have them on atleast* 20g of animal protein or from whole eggs per meal
send me pics everyday so i can keep them on track
all whole foods
want them aging well

Pretty useless to supplement BCAA or EAAs inbetween meals I think. You will get adequate amounts from protein sources anyway.

Best used around training.

Yes, EAA are more efficient.
To the guy stating that EAA aren't a complete protein and that this doesn't equal a scoop of 25g...be quiet. Stop spewing out bro-science and your guesswork and spreading false information. It's cool to be passionate and want answers but listen and read more than you post and try to fact check yourself instead of us doing it. Eventually people will just stop correcting you and ignore you instead.

Now, BCAA's are pretty damn useless in comparison and I have been saying this for a decade. For them to work correctly, other things have to be in place and you are simply not using a complete protein as you easily could with slightly less flavorful EAA.

Use EAA between meals or slightly prior to a meal to boost protein signaling/synthesis.

MRE Lite is the only protien powder that gives me no GI problems thus far. Whey of any kind = screwed .....

Which reputable coaches advocate pulsing with BCAA or EAAs in-between meals that dont have a vested interest in selling dietary supplements?
