Table 1 Sample macronutrient breakdown during workout days and off days for  a study subject

From: In a single-blind, matched group design: branched-chain amino acid supplementation and resistance training maintains lean body mass during a caloric restricted diet

   Caloric Intake (Kcal/day) Protein (g) Carbohydrate (g) Fat (g)
Workout Day BCAA 2456 215 184 96
CHO 2717 238 204 106
Off Day BCAA 2046 205 128 80
CHO 2264 226 142 88
  1. Each individual’s daily caloric and macronutrient intake was determined using the Harris Benedict formula with an activity factor of 1.35 (lightly active individual engaging in light exercise 1–3 days/week) for workout days and 1.125 (sedentary individual) for off days
