    Seems like a good supplement to take. Don't hear too much about it though.

    Yes. Branched chain amino acids; they are in protein.

    My pockets aren't fat enough for that shit. 20 scoops a day? I'd go through a tub of that pretty quick and it ain't cheap.

    Well, I'm on a pretty extreme diet so I drink them throughout the day between meals. I mix 4 scoops with one quart of water and will drink 2 or 3 of those at work and 2 or 3 while I'm training. It really seems to be helping me.

    Yes, it's beneficial to take especially on a cut in ADDITION to the bcaas found in protein.
