I've been using both of these Biotest products for nearly a month now. I'm curious about the necessity to cause an insulin spike to transport creatine to muscle tissue. I have only a basic understanding of this whole process.
I ordered the Metabolic Drive specifically because of the low cal/low sugar content, but I've been mixing the creatine in this shake. Every morning I take two scoops of Metabolic Drive and one scoop of creatine mixed with water. I drink the same thing after my workout or around dinner time on off days.
My question is this: Is the creatine getting where it needs to go by mixing only with the Metabolic Drive or do I need to add something with more sugar to get the most out of the creatine?
A little background: Of course I want to increase LBM and lose fat. However, in my current state (around 19% bf) cutting fat is my priority. I am currently trying to maximize fat loss while retaining (or even gaining) as much LBM as possible. I have been working out for about 4 months now and have substantially increased in strength. According to an electrical impedance test I've gone from about 24%bf to about 19%bf while only losing about 3 lbs. It'd be really nice to see single digit BF, but realistically I'm shooting for 12 to 14 and then maybe focus more on strength than fat loss.
