    I've only gave up gum last week or so, I don't really expect any results. Just happy not to chew.
    Thanks, Leida. How many grams of protein would you say you eat daily? I've upped mine recently.

    I have no idea, but I am pretty sure it is at least matches my LBM gram per pound. I know that when I was counting ~ 100 grams was easy (my LBM is about 101 lbs), 130 required efforts, and 200 was undoable.

    Yesterday I had a 200 g can of salmon, about a cup of egg-whites, an egg and 2 or so tbsp of nut butter.

    Maybe the BCAAs are doing something b/c I got a PR on my deadlifts. 1RM 170 lbs!

    Thanks! I am about 100 grams for protein right now and I think it's a good spot for me right now. I can't imagine digesting 200 grams
