    I am 32 years of age and just stared to train heavy again after a 8 month lay off. I just want to know if it is posible to use creatine and keep the weight gain to a minimum. I am trying to lose the fat weight and I am only taking the creatine for the added energy and to help with recovery. Is this possible.

    You'll gain a fair bit of water weight (about 5 pounds deoending on how big you are) but as soon as you stop the creatine that disapears again. I cycled off for my last competition and lost the weight in 5 days or so.

    Creatine is great for muscel gain and it will not effect you from losing fat. I would recomend adding glutamine to your supplement routine to better help with recovery.

    Weight gain is a matter of your diet. The only weight gain from creatine you would get is from your body holding more water due to the creatine. Skip the initial loading phase and you should be fine.
