As far as my knowledge about you goes, you were bodybuilding at this point. Do you think this drinking provided a significant hindering of progress towards your physique goals?
    Hey Layne. This is an old question that was unanswered. I'm curious to see your response. Thanks.

Flat or full is an issue of glycogen (which would relate to an issue of how gluconeogenic a particular protein is, and i'm pretty sure people don't want their protein to be a primary glucose source) and the amount of fluid in your vascular system and I fail to see how whole food vs. shakes would effect that. Now, may whole foods be more FILLING in terms of gut and stomach volume than shakes? Yes. However another option is that you blend your shake with ice to increase the volume of it and you will get a similar benefit.

      as far as when I take amino acids, I take them between meals and I would suggest reading my reviews/articles on protein intake frequency and 'refractory response' to understand why as I have described so in detail
      I understand why you take the BCAA's between meals but I've heard a number of people recommend taking them just 10-20min. before meals (even with EAA's as well). What do you think of that?

          do you know if its possible to go into engineering supplement formulas and working with things like protien,carbs and fats with an chemical engineering degree? Should i switch to sciences?
          I know this question was for Layne, but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in.

          Chemistry/Biochemistry, Nutritional Science, Dietetics, Molecular Biology ect.. at most Universities require many of the same classes. For example Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry, Advanced Nutrition. These types of classes are what will give you a foundation for supplement engineering.

          That being said, have you looked into the job market for "supplement engineers?".

          Hope this helps,

            He obvisouly feels his way is the best way. Why would you take them 10-20 minutes before you eat?

              yeah it does help. Yeah i haven't looked into the market yet but i liked to do something with nutrition/supplementation and the body as my career.I think its amazing the changes your body can go through and how you can manipulate it.Im doing my best right now to talk to different group of experienced people such as biomedical engineers/chemical engineers, chemistry students, layne other people involved in the sports nutrition most focus on athletes and powerlifting/bodybuilding.

                actually i read up on his research experiment about amino plasma levels
                and its 4-6 hours not 4-5

                  Oh... I thought he recommended every 4-5. I did every 4 for a while and it worked fine. It just became hard eating so much food at once. Especially when I was eating it cold at work. Now I eat every 2-3 hours for the most part, but I will go 4-5 hours from time to time, and thwn I eat alo when I do because I'm starving. It hasn't held me back at all that I've noticed.

                    if you read that then i explain in there why i recommend timing BCAAs between meal

                    • hey layne
                      What your opinion on this product? Could you maybe explain to me how it works. Thought i ask you since you have biochem degree would give non biasis (sp) opinion.

                        well Layne i kow you wrote it but you only mention leucine(3-4g) between meals not bcaas..so which is better to take?

                          Either is fine - it's the leucine content that matters. If you use BCAAs, make sure the leucine content is sufficient to spike protein synthesis - just like you would make sure that whatever protein source you use for food that the leucine content within that source is sufficient for spiking protein synthesis.

                          • anyone reccommand some good articles or books i could download or buy to learn more about natural body building. Ive been reading and looking into bodybuilding for years now and more so natural bodybuilding recently just finished all of layne's video series cutting/bulking articles and scivation free ebooks loves those.

                              so is leucine nearly as benefical by itself as bcaa's containing similar amounts of leucine-this would save alot of money taking 18g of leucine per day verses 36g of bcaas

                              • Layne any scientific info on using digestive enzymes and acidophillus as a pro digestive aid.

                                Could it make calorie utilization more optimal, using the above mentioned supplements, therefore increasing potential gains. If only mildly.

                                What is your take on melatonin, helps recovery boosts testosterone and is it safe??
