"Carbohydrate-rich meals are used as a late evening snack in cirrhotic patients, but our study indicates that supplementation with a BCAA mixture can also be used to reduce fat oxidation in the early morning, with results similar to those with carbohydrate-rich snacks."
If one were doing a prolonged fast, say 48 hours, and wanted to supplement with plain BCAAs would this negate the effect of the fast and halt both muscle catabolism and fat oxidation to any significant degree???
