Poor old creatine monohydrate. One of the few supplements out there that actually works the way it’s supposed to really hasn’t been talked about much since the late 90’s. That is a crying shame too because it works and very few people are actually non responders. It’s been pushed under the rug for the newest and greatest new fangled supplement that promises to put on 20 pounds of muscle a week while making you a sex god in bed.
The problem with creatine is that it’s become a staple of most people in the know diets. Once a supplement becomes a mainstay, all the newbies that pack the gym underestimate it and want the newest N.O. product that promises them the best work of their young lives. But you are smarter than that, or you wouldn’t be reading this.
So we all know it works on packing on muscle, but this article is about using it to lose weight and keeping it off right? No, I’m not off my rocker and the real world results are out there. Bill Phillips was one of the first to use it to help folks lose fat and improve health and metabolism all at the same time. He knew that creatine not only helps to build and tone up muscles, but also increased workout threshold. What that means is you can exercise longer and faster, which in turn burns more fat!
Great stuff that creatine is, and the longer and faster you can work out, the higher your metabolism is. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past, I don’t know, all your life, the higher your metabolism, the more you will become a fat burning machine. So kiss that flabby belly bye bye and say hello to your long lost friend, six pack abs!
So make creatine a staple in your diet, there really isn’t any reason not to.
