I have been eating very clean, lifting, and steadily putting on weight (mainly muscle- knock on wood). My question is, if I were to start taking creatine should I lower the calories a little? To compensate for the weight gain creatine will provide?

I wouldn't as long as your macros work fine with the creatine. be sure to drink a lot of water! good luck man

i wouldn't, the only thing that creatine effects for me is how much water i take in a day.

Likely not, as most creatine products don't have calories in them. Just check the label and you should be good to go.

Weight gain from creatine is mostly water weight...you shouldn't need to alter your calories any.
