Creatine = Fat Face?


I've heard from some not-so-reliable sources that creatine use can sometimes make your face look fat and bloated due to water retention. Does anybody have any scientific or real-world evidence of this? Just curious..


To much food and added BF% = fatface not creatine.

in my experience anyway



Creatine hydrates muscle cells intracellularly.


I think the high school kids are spreading rumors again...like "you won't get pregnant".


Yeah it didn't sound right to me either, but I wanted a few opinions just to be sure. Thanks for the replies.
