    Default Creatine on a cut

    Hey Guys,

    Im currently trying to lose a bit of fat (great time of the year!) and I have recently started taking a bit of creatine. Just wondered will this hinder me at all in losing fat, as im not very clued up on creatine (first time trying it)

    Cheers

    Are you just trying to get rid of fat or do you need your overall weight down?

    I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I know that creatine does increase your water retention.

    Creatine will not help loose weight, as said about it does tend to make you hold a bit more water, so I would personally drop it.
    Some have claimed that this weight gain, typically 0.5 to 1.6 kilograms occurring in the first few days to first two weeks of creatine supplementation, is evidence of increased muscle mass. Most researchers, however, believe that this weight gain is accounted for by creatine-induced water retention. The longer-term studies needed to confirm or refute claims that chronic creatine supplementation can result in greater muscle mass have not been conducted.

    PSMF = Protein-Sparing Modified Fast

    Well, I lost a lot of weight rather quick on it, some people will disagree with this diet, but I found it works and will be going back on it tomorrow.. Basically at my weight (125k) I will be aiming for 1500 kcals a day max.. You are not allowed carbs, so guess you could compare it to something like TKD or Atkins, but its not intended to get you in to ketosis like them diet... Its a diet to try and make you keep as much of your muscle mass as possible. With me I aimed for...

    1500kcals a day
    200g of protein (4kcals per 1g)
    70g-75g of fat (9kcal per 1g of fat)

    First 3 days or so I found really really hard to be honest, was hard to train, weight lift etc but then I started getting used to it and really liked it.

    If you want I can post up what I ate what times etc, you have to eat really every 3 hours tops. Its a bit of a hardcore diet and may not suit all people, I was loosing upwards of 3lbs per week every week.

    You have one cheat meal every week in which you have a very high kcal meal carbs etc, I would generally have chips, gravy and a pie with half a pint of fosters and diet lemonade.

    I can not take credit for the diet as I was advised of it by a friend (Tall) - but a bit more info on the "basics" of the diet can be found here

    If you are only trying to cut fat and not bothered about weight I would definatly keep it. I don't know why anyone is sugesting otherwise.

    Keep it in, it will help keep you lifting heavier weights despite running down the cals.
