For those of you who know about the ridiculously hard diet I just did for the North American - to make weight - there are many things that stand out - but one in particular I wanted to share.

As I was going through week after week of extremely low carbs, I never lost an ounce of strength. At the 5 week out point Isabadman/Jason told me I would have to lose muscle to make weight, and at 3 weeks out Dr Serrano told me the same thing. I am not sure if I did or not, probably a little..I got a little flat the day of the show....but on 30 days straight of low carbs..still doing the same sets and reps on everything all the way through to the week of the show was pretty insane to me. I could see if I was carb cycling..but this was 2 a day cardio, coupled with extremely low carbs- - a recipe for muscle wasting.

Dr Serrano had me do one of his Essential Amino Acid protocols that he said would help me keep muscle. My actual food was mostly just grass-fed liver, whole eggs, red palm oil, and yucky tuna.

The EAA's helped me to maintain muscle and strength big time...I am not the type to bs you guys, and honestly, I don't know if TP's EAA's are better than others, because I haven't tried others in years. What I do know is that TP EAAs help to retain muscle like no supplement I have ever used.

Brad did the same thing for the USA, and I have had others do this successfully as well.

Anyways, thought I would share that....especially for those of you who are in diet mode..

Thanks for the info, would you mind sharing your protocol? If not I understand as you're a trainer and it would be unfair to your paying clients.

How low were your carbs for those weeks?

It sounds like you followed a very diet limited Anabolic Diet, minus the carb load, which from my experience would account for your maintaining strength to a large degree.

I'm not trying to discredit the aminos, but anyone who has successfully switched their metabolism over to burning primarily fats will attest to the strength enhancing power of it.

Sorry its an old thread...but what was your protocol John?

In the offseason...do you think 5g EAA's, 5g glutamine and 5g Leucine between meals is a good idea?

If Shelby agrees to let me, I might give these a whirl.

TrueProtein is the ONLY place I get supplements. Has been for 5 years!

So BCAA stimulates protein synthesis/muscle anabolism?

And EAA prevents catabolism & helps to retain muscle in caloric deficit?


Let me know if I got these two straight

Just curious, why EAA over BCAA?
