    Fact or Fiction: Creatine Will Prevent Weight Loss?

    VERDICT: Fiction

    SOLUTION: Although research does show that creatine can increase water retention under the skin, there is no research that supports the notion that creatine will prevent you from dropping bodyfat. In fact, research suggests creatine will not only help you gain lean muscle mass, but also may help you to lose fat.

    One study from Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, Virginia) found that creatine not only allowed subjects to lose bodyfat while dieting, but it helped them gain muscle; the placebo group in the same investigation lost muscle mass while dieting. Studies in animals show that creatine supplementation actually increases fat loss. Researchers from Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, New York) discovered that subjects taking creatine for 28 days and not working out increased their resting metabolic rate by about 3%, but those adding creatine to a weight training program increased their resting metabolic rate by about 6%. An increase in metabolism can lead to a significant drop in bodyfat over time.

    ALTERNATIVE: If the standard creatine monohydrate causes you to bloat, try a different form of it, such as creatine hydrochloride, creatine alpha-ketoglutarate or magnesium creatine chelate. Take about 2-5 grams of either creatine hydrochloride, creatine alpha-ketoglutarate or magnesium creatine chelate before and after workouts.

    Creatine has helped the obese lose weight, since many are chronically low of endogenous ATP.
    Thus supplementation from an exogenous source gave real cellular energy to cells which = more activity, which thus = more net calories burned.
