    I was on this stuff years ago. seemed to really help me out alot.
    'loading' is done when you first start using the stuff, to get a bunch of it built up in your system.
    if you've been taking it, you shouldnt need to load again, even if its a new kind.

    see, if we had a personal trainer on 'staff' here, he could answer this for you....in exchange, you could show me pics of your girls boobs.

    If you eat multiple packages of morning glory seeds each day it has the same effect.

    Do yourself a favor and take glutamine instead or creatine.

    return it. the only kind of creatine worth buying, if any, is the powder form. stay away from pills, liquid, the chewables, whatever.

    honestly, i would say take something else like V-12 or Swole V-2 . these are like creatine, but 10 times better. their is no loading phase, and the scoops are small, maybe a table spoon, that you take twice a day, no big ass scoop to mix. the results are also way better than creatine. they will also include Glutamine in the mix, which is essential to building muscle and usually has to be purchased and taken seperately.

    I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned that it is WATER MUSCLE. It doesn't enhance true growth in muscle mass, all it does is manipulates and retains water in the muscles to puff your muscles up. Once you stop taking it, you go back down. Nor has anyone mentioned the long-term possible cancer risks. Creatine is relatively new on the market, hence there is no way other than time itself to know of it's long term health risks. However, scientists have indicated through research that there are hints that it could raise the risk of cancer over the long term.

    I was a fool too and took this stuff. Now I go for the more natural protein shakes or simply foods that are high in protein and low in fat like baked tuna and combine that with an exercise routine. Try that instead.

    yeah exactly theo, its just filling muscles with water, nothing more. a friend did that with steroids and his chest caved in when he went off, like hs muscles turned into jello, it loked horrible, like he had oatmeal under his skin. creatine is stupid, but i made a bundle selling it ;)

    when i took it i got alot stronger, i'm not sure if water in the muscle can do this. and when i stopped, i didn't go back down, i retained the weight. i lost muscle from lack of working out but i stayed up at the max weight i have ever been. and damn it took me a while to lose that fucking extra weight!

    as with about everything else. until the next study at least.
