Yeah Creatine will make you look puffier. Try a keto diet and intermittent fasting. It'll do wonders in a short period of time.

That's just creatine monohydrate. Tricreatine malate will give you strength gains without water retention. But I also support IF and HIIT.

Might give that a shot.

For those suggesting intermittent fasting, hasn't the conventional wisdom always been that if you're fasting, your body will consume muscle and store fat to protect it from starvation?

The IF articles I'm reading don't address this. Instead, they suggest that IF helps make you leaner.

From what Iíve read, that starvation thing is separate from IF. Not eating for up to a day wonít send your body into starvation mode, and there are people now doing water taste of a week or more who swear by them. IF advocates say that IF allows your body to break down old cells, which is something our bodies did in the past before civilization allowed us to have as much food as we want and more on a daily basis.

Combining Keto and IF keeps you in ketosis, which has your body burn fat for energy instead of carbs and glucose, and keeps your insulin levels low (higher levels of insulin supposedly block the body from using fat). I havenít done IF, but Iíve done a Keto lite diet (mostly low carb and adding healthy fats like olive oil and advocados to my diet without worrying about hitting specific macros) for the past year and have dropped the weight I gained after breaking my ankle four or five years ago which killed my exercise routine and then some, losing about 60 pounds.

totally agree..Congrats

and can a person be Keto and keep their Alkaline in check or high..

Once in my life I was pretty serious about my health.. internal and external

Creatine sipped during my workouts helped me push more and be less sore.. recover faster.. Maybe use short term?

Maca is nice

Fat 9 calories per gram
Carbs 4 calories per gram
Protein 4 calories per gram

Protein will help stabilize glucose levels and reduce hunger. It is responsible for building your hair skin and nails..
Simple Carbs - Complex Carbs.. just eat bananas and vegetables
Fats... try to get quality ones.. they are serious energy . NPC - Nutrition Per Calorie.. DHA EPA

If you want to go lean and ripped cut carbs, increase protein, and lift weights. Supplements are not necessary outside of some protein post-workout. Get all of your nutrients from food. Don't waste your money. Invest it into your grocery shopping.

Starvation mode? Yeah, maybe if you were stuck in Cave for several days/weeks.

I suggest you watch these videos:

Intermittent fasting is more about giving your body a break heal damaged cells while its not breaking down food. Its a way of life.

To add to that, it's very, VERY easy to do. I was inadvertently doing in for most of my life. My dinner would be 8ish and I normally didn't eat until a late lunch the following day.

in general I agree.....eat clean, supplement with protein (although I would recommend more often than post workout), and have productive workouts. It does not hurt to try creatine or other supplements, but if I would focus on diet, protein consumption and workouts more than any supplement. If you do introduce supplements, I would only try one at a time....so you can easily determine if it is having the desired impact.

Yeah, Iíve been watching some Dr Jason Fung vids on YouTube myself, and itís inspired me to start IF 16/8 three times a week to start. Gonna try it for a couple months and see how I feel.
