Thanks for the insight Mike.
I'm more concerned about this issue from a cutting or performance standpoint. I'll be trying to shed some body fat over the next 3-4 weeks after which I'll eat for performance. As a whole, it sounds like NO ONE can stay on low cal for a significant period of time if performance is of any importance to them. Seems like the BCAAs would help w/ Leptin; however, not to the extent that refeeds can. We'll find out after I finish a refeed today and go back to high fat, high protein.
Funny how one can be brainwashed w/ two common misconceptions: carbs have no place in fat loss (too much emphasis on hormones, not as much on caloric intake) & supplements cure all (look to the diet first!)
