Default Bcaas during work

Hi everyone I occasionally work 12 hour shifts and would like to know that if supplementing with bcaas instead of food during this time could prevent any possible catabolism. I am on a cut, so it tends to make me a little paranoid. I don't enjoy eating during work as my appetite doesn't come in until the evening (when I get off). I could do IF, but I wanted to know if bcaas can hold out any muscle breakdown (calories in/out and macros, I know , I know) but I like being as optimal as possible.

Thanks guys and excuse any ignorance of mine if any

To quote Lyle from one of the numerous times it's popped up on the Facebook group...

Whole protein > isolated BCAA, why is this still being asked about?
If you're going to have anything, just have a protein shake.

If you have time/ability to take an overpriced, ineffective supplement, do you not have time/ability to eat something that is a whole protein.

Because BCAA are worthless as hell if protein intake is sufficient

if proper amount of protein is consumed daily, does this also cancel the need for extra bcaa to aid immunity during heavy training periods?

Literally in the same paragraph

Id note that simply raising protein intake to adequate levels would be better than trying to shore up an inadequacy with supplements.
