Commenter 1: Is it safe to eat sugar free candy everyday (sweetened with splenda or maitol)? I do that instead of cheating, and it makes my cravings go away. I have a feeling that it could have the same effect on my body as sugar though.
Tim: Don’t eat the candy. Eat 10g of BCAAs per meal if you have sugar cravings.
Commenter 2: Most products talk about mcg of the AA’s so just wanted to check your recommendation – any chance you could clarify? Do you have a favorite?
Tim: I use Dymatize BCAAs. I do mean grams. 1,000mg = 1g.
