I’m not saying that creatine is good for you — only that it’s not a bad thing. But it is true that in my personal experience, when I do consume creatine, it can make me fat. So before you make your decision on whether to eat creatine, it’s important that you have a detailed look at how creatine affects your body. It really is a tricky thing to swallow.
You may have heard about creatine, which is made from the amino acid lysine. Its primary effect is to help the body make more of the muscle-building amino acid called lysine, but it’s also been linked to other negative health effects. One of the more well-known is that creatine has been linked to kidney stones, although some research has suggested it may be beneficial for muscle regeneration.
Creatine is also used in supplements like Muscle Milk. While there’s no proven link between creatine and muscle loss, studies have shown that muscle builders may feel more energetic, have better cardio workouts, look better and feel stronger.
In a recent study, researchers found that creatine supplementation is associated with increased abdominal fat, while others have found that it may be more beneficial for maintaining muscle mass than for gaining strength.
Of course, any weight loss strategy should be tested for effectiveness before you try it. The problem with some of these supplements, like creatine, is that they’re often marketed with promises of instant results. But there’s no such thing as instant weight loss. There may be instant gains, but there’s no instant loss.
As I’ve said before, creatine is a good weight loss supplement. But it’s not the best way to lose weight. If you are not looking for an immediate fat loss, you should avoid creatine.
I can’t think of a better reason than to use creatine. And I can’t think of a better way to kick your fat than to use it to make you fat.
Its one of those things that you need to use at least twice per day. So if you take creatine in the morning you will be more likely to use it over your lunch and again in the evening. This is because theres a higher concentration of the compound in your bloodstream after your workout.
The benefits of creatine are numerous, but there is one thing that stands out to me: the fact that it has no calories. So imagine you are eating a meal that includes one or two servings of rice, a small portion of meat, and a couple of eggs. You are eating that meal for your whole day. Would you consider yourself to be getting fat if you were eating all that food? No, you would think that you were getting hungry and so you would eat more.
Well, I wouldn’t say “eating all that food” to be truthful. You would just eat more. You would probably eat the same dinner every day, but you might not even notice because you do not have a scale that counts out grams. You just eat your food, which has no calories.
