I tried creatine for the first time yesterday. All I used was one teaspoon. I'm not doing a big loading...I'm just slowing building up my creatine stores. However, the next day I noticed I had way more energy for my workout. I'm wondering if this was a placebo effect. Is it possible to get a noticable effect from creatine from just a single 5 gram dose?
Here's one aspect which might explain why it helped. I eat meat sparingly. So I think I have a low storage of creatine in my body. Maybe getting that dose of 5 grams really had a effect since I may have a low storage in my body?
