    Trac creatine while dieting

    I know you shouldnt take creatine while dieting, it makes you hold water. My friend gave me some Trac creating which is sugar free, he told me I could take it while dieting. Has anyone heard or know if this is true?

    I wouldn't think it would hinder fat loss, but it will make you hold water. That's how creatine works. Trac has arginine in it too.

    SUre, it'll help you preserve muscle, and water has nothing to do with fat so you'll be fine

    I'm taking trac right now and I'm not holding much water at all. Creatine makes me stronger which gets me bigger, I am cutting right now, so anything to help me stay up in strength is GREAT. If I have to go to the beach or out to the lake one day......just cut out the creatine the week prior and you'll be ripped the f' up.

    No, the added water inside your cells is what gets you bigger. The muscle itself is not groing due to creatine.

    I was not saying that Creatine makes my muscles bigger. Creatine fills my cells up with water, allowing me to lift more weight, thus allowing me to grow more muscle. Creatine inadvertantly makes your muscles bigger if you lift heavy. SO CREATINE DOES MAKE YOUR MUSCLES BIGGER. (besides the water)

    Creatine has nothing to do with losing bodyfat and you can use it to maintain some of the muscle. But do not use CELL TECH or any other creatine with sugar.

    i dunno man, i heard it's pretty hard on the liver. it's best if you mix it with a little mountain dew, then inject it right into your heart (gets into the bloodstream quicker so it gets transported to all muscle throughout the whole body). but if u decide to just drink it, be sure you're takin a lot of milk thistle. peace
