We know that some amino acids are considered “essential,” because the body cannot make them on its own. Many of us are familiar with the branched-chain amino acids, commonly referred to as BCAAs in the world of fitness and health, those precursors to proteins (a.k.a. proteinogenic amino acids), like leucine, isoleucine, and valine. But how do they help us lose fat and lean out?

January always brings the regular New Year’s resolutions for weight loss; and with that increased exercise and decreased overall calorie intake, comes an increased and critical demand for nutrients. Eating healthy is important, but do you know how much food you would need to consume to get the proper amount of nutrition?
