    Yes you can.
    All creatine helps your body produce more atp (which your body uses as energy).
    But keep in mind:
    "Water Retention. The gains in body mass observed are likely due to water retention during supplementation. Creatine is an osmotically active substance. Thus, any increase in the body's Cr content should result in increased water retention and consequent gains in body mass"
    You will get water retention, so even though you may be burning fat, you may not see the scale move more for the first month. Just believe in science! If you are in a calorie deficit, you will be burning fat, even if the scale says otherwise.

    This is from memory...
    There have been many studies on creatine, it's one of the few otc products that actually do anything. But, there are responders and non responders. There was a high correlation between the amount of red meat in the diets. You get creatine from red meat, but not nearly enough to saturate your levels. The people in the studies who ate red meat, for the most part, were non responders. The people who had no red meat, were responders. What does this tell me? That you do not need anywhere near saturated levels to get the full effects of creatine.
    Also, I've hear a lot of BB pros talk about what supplements they take, VERY few ever list creatine.
