    Guys, I think you should probably take this discussion to the Dieting/Supplement forum. If for no other reason than to have mercy on my poor self. You're causing me undue amounts of pain.
     
  8. the supplement forum would know this well.

    only thing i know about creatine is that if you dont stay constantly hydrated you might wind up laying on a mat in pain for hours because every single muscle in your body is cramping. hear stories and seen it once--why i dont use it.

    I read an article in tnation that said you can only absord a couple of grams a day. If you eat red meat with any frequency, you are probably getting as much creatine as you can digest anyway. I've taken it in the past, and while I didn't hop on the scale every day, I did notice that I was able to lift a little heavier when on it. I'll probably do another cycle in a couple of weeks, but I'm not going to take anywhere near the amount I did in the past. Maybe 20 grams for a few days, and then five post workout for a month or so.

    beware of the insomnia! When I use creatin I find it diffucult to sleep, waking up early in the morning and cant get to sleep again, and feeling like a zombie rest of the :mad: day... Anyone else experienced this??

    Creainte does the following- enlarges muscles fibres allowing for greater contraction. This is why you gain water.

    Side effects- weight gain ( not good if you need to cut weight in order to fight ), it affects your kidneys ( I have been warned many times not to drink alcohol while I am on the creatine), shrinking penis size.




















    Just kidding!
