i dont think you need creatine in the 1st place..... once you stop using you lose everything you worked hard to gain.... i dont see a point in using something that dissappears once you stop using it...... ya like robert said theres chances of stomach problems, dehydration and muscle cramps. remember all creatine does it put water into your muscles to make them appear "full" its not real muscle.... more or less ....... stick with eating healthy and do it right...stay away from the fake crap
i believe in a book, either "beyond brawn" or "further brawn" has a really good section on creatine use and how to bodybuild without all that fake crap ..... check your library they usually have copies you can borrow
I generally agree with keeping it natural but am also interested in learning more about creatine. You raised one of the main points I've been wondering about - whether or not whatever gains/advantages you get from using creatine use will stay with you if you stop using it...
I'd appreciate hearing folks experiences with that. Also, I have heard that it helps you be stronger, not just bigger - is that accurate?
