Q: Hello, I wanted to ask you if it is a good idea to take creatine while trying to lose fat? I’m taking thermogenic pills to lose fat, should I still take the creatine even though the pills have caffeine?
A: There’s no problem with taking creatine during a dieting phase. In fact, I recommend it! I know some guys that take creatine all the way up to the day of their contest! As for taking creatine along side your fat burner… no problem there either. But there is one thing you should be aware of when taking either one of these individually and especially when combining the two. Drink Lots Of Water! Not because it will be life threatening if you don’t, but because creatine draws water into your muscles (away from the rest of your body) and caffeine is a natural diuretic. The combination of the two will leave you high and dry if you aren’t getting enough H2O! If you already have your diet and fluid intake in-check, then getting enough shouldn’t be a problem. If you don’t, however, an increase in water intake is imperative to maximizing your gains – or losses in your case!
