I'm a 125-ish pound female who's struggling to eat enough protein. I've been primal for 2 years without seeing a difference in weight or inches. I've been working out during this time, and have started lifting heavier in the last few months. I do have some muscle, but I'm not seeing the change in body composition that I'd like. I keep seeing BCAAs mentioned as something to help those who don't get enough protein. I picked some up. The bottle says to take 4 capsules 3 times a day - between meals, immediately after exercise, or before bed. This seems like a LOT. I'm assuming this is geared toward bodybuilders. Can (Should) I take less and still see some results? I thought you were supposed to take them before working out. (I work out in the mornings, fasted.) Are there any side effects? I'd love to hear from anyone who has tried them. Thanks!
