    Will creatine make me look fat?

    Before anyone flames, i have read alot of the articles about creatine and i understand what it does , increases strength and musclemass by storing more energy and pumping more water into the muscle, or something along those lines. I was going to start a creatine course tommorow however im now worried i will look fat, due to the 5-10 pounds extra weight gained from the water. My bodyfat is around 12% or so, will this added water mass make me look fatter or more muscular? thanks.

    You will lose some definition from extra water weight. You will also look more muscular.

    I used it, I didn't like the extra useless weight but I did like the help it gave on strength gains. I don't use it anymore and get on fine without it.

    You could just gain a few pounds of water weight, or you could gain 5 or more. Depends how you do it and what your body is like. Everyone's different. I wouldn't bank on keeping visible abs though, unless you were 10% or below.

    in my avi i was three months into a creatine cycle and my abs were still very visible. so no you will not lose your abs. just drink plenty of h2o.
    Anyone can give up, its the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, thats true strength

    Lol sorry but this is true.


    And I take creatine. I retain a shootload of water, because I drink alot of water and have a high sodium diet. It makes me feel and look bloated but that is ok I still like it.
