I thought that this was a question that should be answered by someone who knows more than I do. Okay, if you’re over-weight and take creatine, you’ll get bigger, right? But will it be an “embarrassing” bigger (bigger gut too)?
I was thinking that if you took creatine, it will add to your LBM. But does it add in such a way that your calorie expenditure per day will increase? (ie. JMB has 500 cal + 10cal/lb per day). I’m thinking that it will allow a greater exertion in the gym, thus more calories burned there as well.
I know creatine won’t add to the damage you do to your body during a workout, and that’s where most of the calories go (healing the damage). But would creatine allow you to expend more calories per day? Gosh, all I can think is that it would make you heavier and make you spend more walking, climbing stairs, etc.
