Hello,does amino acids helps in burning fat and loosing weight.pleas help?

Hello,does amino acids helps in burning fat and loosing weight.pleas help?

No: We all take amino acids in our diet. Proteins are made of amino acids and proteins are present in grains, legumes, beans, nuts, milk etc. There is no substitute to reducing caloric intake and increasing physical activity. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Could I take amino acids for recovery from training (wrestling, strength and conditioning) without gaining weight?

Could I take amino acids for recovery from training (wrestling, strength and conditioning) without gaining weight?

Yes: Amino acid pills or powders have a specific calorie content, but it is usually small. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins such as those found in lean meat. Supplements are not likely to provide any benefit beyond a balanced menu including meat, dairy, eggs, beans and rice. I suggest you do a little research on real food sports nutrition. Gaining weight is NORMAL at 16, allow it! ...Read more

Stop taking shots!: Perhaps you are having an allergic or autoimmune response to something in the injections. Each time you do this the response from your body is amplified. This is called an anamnestic response, and could be potentially dangerous. Whatever you are trying to accomplish could probably be done in a much safer fashion with oral supplements. ...Read more

Medications with or without Gastric Bypass have different absorption. Some with foods or not and some interact with different medications. ...Read more

What kind of problems and symptoms could occur for a vegetarian who doesn't get all the essential amino acids? Just curious.

Malnutrition: amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Without the presence of a complete set of these building blocks you can't make many proteins vital to body function including enzymes, neurotransmitters etc. Enzymes include digestive enzymes without which you compromise the ability to absorb and digest other food groups as well as vitamins and minerals.
