I believe you can buy LEUCINE in tablet form. (I know it is recommended to get from real food, but....) Pretty sure I've seen it at the health food store. My whey protein has 12 mg per 100 grams, so I know I'm getting lots.
Look. If you eat a three egg omolett (sp?) and has some cheese in it (can you do cheese?), or some chicken, that may bring you up close to the 8mg mark.
I looked at some other protein powders (rice, hemp....,) they all contain leucine, although not as much s the whey...
Also, DOC Mercola suggests WHEY or BROWN RICE protein in his NO GRAIN diet. I guess the brown rice protein taken from thr rice leaves the carbs out. I know my brown rice protein has almost no carbs in it...
Also, when I googled LEUCINE SUPPLEMENT there are a TON of links about leucine's fat blasting/muscle building power.
