New Hueler! Crossfitter. Can I use BCAAs?

Hi, I am a new Huel user - in fact will be using first time tomorrow.

I am a crossfitter and train 6/7 days a week. I generally have a healthy diet, low carb, high fat with 250g + of protein.

My question is if I want to get a very good fat loss boost from using Huel can I supplement with BCAA and creative to ensure no muscle loss?

Additionally, any experiences of adding pea or rice protein to Huel? I do have unflavoured Whey but guess that wouldn’t be ideal?

Thanks in advance guys.

There will be no problem using addtional BCAAs

However, I’m not sure of any benefit either.

Thanks James. What about Creatine?

No problem there, either.

Doesnt Huel already contain a complete amino acid profile? I’m assuming it does?

Yes it does. You can read it here if you want to see it all in depth:

I use BCAAs because I do intermittent fasting and train in a fasted state. 10g of BCAA in my system when I start training supposedly makes that less stressful for the body. Other than that, I don’t see any benefit in using BCAAs, either. Huel has all the amino acids you need.

And I’ve added extra pea protein to Huel occasionally. No problems.
