15 days out from comp...need advice on creatine, bloating..

#1 Postby erikajean » Wed Oct 05, 2011 6:20 pm

1I'm 15 days out from my next NPC bikini comp. I have been training for 10 weeks. I am 5'8", my body fat is 14% at 128lbs. I am taking 3gs of creatine every morning in my protein shake. I take BCAA before my workout and Glutamine and BCAA before bed.
I can tell I have leaned out and yet also gaint mass and def have six pack going when I wake up first thing in the morning. But my problem is then when I start my eating I feel bloated and loose that look and get nervous I won't look great on stage.
My question is, at what point should I cut the creatine out? generally I hear 2 weeks before to stop.

I am on a veagn diet...this is what it looks like...

Shake/ apple
1/2 cup Steel cuts/ 1 tbps PB
1Cup veg, 1/2 block TJs tempeh, 6oz sweet pot
Protein shake, banana, almonds
1/2 cup lentils, 1/3 cup edamame, 2 cups veg, 1/2 avacado
Protein shake, berries
