    I put a lot less thought into diet than most of the people on these forums - exercise is a much larger part of my focus. I've written a few blog posts about diet and exercise though (like that one).

    basically comes down to : eat real food

    for me it's : eat A LOT of real food

    So I bought a cannister of vanilla-flavored whey protein powder. It's sweetened with stevia and the store brand from my local natural foods store, which I trust to screen reasonably healthy ingredients. It says on the AA breakdown that it has 2.5g of leucine per serving, so my plan is, on Wednesday, have one serving right before lifting, and then eat my lunch afterwards, and then on Friday, I'll have one serving before lifting and one serving after, and then have lunch around noon. I'll let you know how it goes.

    My only aversion is that in general pills are WAY more expensive than powders. How much were the pills per unit weight, federkeil?

    In the case of BCAA pills, Optimum Nutrition sells a 30 day supply for $5.13 (go to Vitacost).

    They should last much longer than 30 days, as you only take one serving before weight training.
