    if you are taking creatine is protein pointless?


    i am taking creatine right now and i have been experiencing some good gains. my question is, since creatine is an amino acid is it necesary to take protein? i take about 10 grams of creatine a day which is the most anabolic amino acid there is so is there even really a need to take whey or is this just overkill?

    not at all


    no, its not pointless to take protein while on creatine. you need the protein to build new muscle. creatine isn't adqueate. it simply supplies the body with energy to allow a better workout etc. protein is essential for this better workout (courtesy of creatine) to produce muscle gains.

    thank you for your answer i appreciate it greatly. i do eat a lot of protein though. i buy these bagels and each one has 7 grams of protein in it so i think i am probably ok. to every body else i would like to see you come around my gym. what i have been doing has been working for me. i know that creatine probably isnt the safest route to go but it works and i drink almost 1/2 a gallon of water a day.

    thank you. i think this would be a good idea as well because i think this is a question that a lot of people have and need the answer to. it is fine if a mod wants to move it to where more people will see it.
