Creatine Diet

When weight training, it is important to have a strict diet. You may be slim and trying to gain weight and muscle, or you may be chubby and want to reduce fat and gain more muscle.

Although creatine is a great supplement to help you build your muscle, without a good diet it is simply not as effective. To maximise your muscle endurance and size while taking creatine a high protein diet is highly recommended.

Some high protein foods are;

  • chicken
  • turkey
  • lean meats and beef
  • fish
  • egg whites

So how much much protein should there be in a high protein diet?

Experts say, anywhere from 0.5 grams to 2 grams per pound of bodyweight. So basically, if you are 160lbs, eat roughly 160 grams of protein each and every day, whether you have trained that day or not.

How am I supposed to each that much protein a day!?

You may eat high protein foods all day, but it is difficult to stick with it when your on the move and at work, but an easier way is to take protein supplements. They are mostly powder based just like creatine, and can be mixed with fruit juice. The average protein supplement provides over 20 grams in each serving, and even up to 30 grams.

    Hi! My husband is trying to loose weight at the moment. He is walking 6 miles a day and is eating healthily. He takes Cod Liver Oil Tablets everyday but he still doesn’t feel like its helping him. Should he take Multi Vitamins instead to give him a boost or could he take the two together?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, it seems that most protein supplement powders have that heavy whey taste. I guess it’s not really a whey taste as even the soy products have it.

    Either way, I’ve had to find other ways to supplement my diet.

    USN 100% Whey protein in vanilla cream flavour is the bomb! Has won awards for best tasting supplement! Really effective aswell, massive gains.

    Alas, there is a need to sacrifice flavor a little if you opt for the better whey protein mixes. Simply put, the better ones haven’t been “impurified” with sugars and sweeteners – which admittedly help flavor, but do next-to-nothing in nutritional value.
    Just know that if the protein powder you’re consuming isn’t tasting too appeal, then you can look forward to some extra special results when you combine it with a good workout schedule and plenty of recovery time in-between.

    Not true when on creatine you should eat a diet high in carbs and normal amounts of protein for your body weight and the equation to figure out how much protein is:

    weight in KG x .8 for normal people
    1.2 for active people
    1.4 to 1.8 in highly active people

    to find your weight in KG: 2.2 / your body weight. enjoy and make sure if you are taking creatine you are getting your carbs in to much protein mixed with creatine will cause your kidney’s to work extremely hard and over periods of time could cause serious damage.

    Working out regularly and hard leaves me in a constant search for low fat sources of quality creatine and vitamin supplements. After having tried numerous powders and stacks, I finally decided to try the Dr Max Powers Anabolic Stack after doing research about the stack and its ingreidents.

    It seems to give me what I was looking for. I take it an hour before workouts and seem to recover much faster with no muscle soreness and more strength and energy the next day. Plus its made me huge. The research I did showed that the creatine included in the Dr Max Powers stack is the most efficient for body building. I recommend it.
