And yet it has 0 calories? 10 grams of protein but zero grams of fat, zero carbs, and... zero calories? That is physically impossible and doesn't even make sense. The label is a flat-out fabrication. Even if it were true, it's still only 40 calories. That's about as much energy as you use in, oh, 5 minutes of tennis.
You are attributing qualities to these products that don't make any sense.
you are right..5 hour energy is 0 calories and so obviously by your logic it must fail as well to provide energy.
I work out fasted so that why I stared using bcaas. It works for me and works on the tennis court. A lot of people use BCAAs during exercise. You don't. High five yourself and move on. Even though I clearly tried to address the OP's question you can't let it go and had to start an argument anyway about an unrelated supplement that I never recommended him in the first place.
