When you stop taking creatine
What effects can you expect?

I've heard you can lose size, you'll lose energy. Others say they saw basically no change as long as they kept working out and eating well.

You will lose some size for sure. You might lose a bit on energy, you still most likely feel a little weaker in the gym, being a rep or two under what you could do with it.

Why would you stop is the better question?

Its quite dependent on your body.

Some people are super responders, so when they start taking it they take on 10 pounds of water weight, which is added to their muscle.

Some people aren't, and only add on a little bit of water weight.

Depending on which type you are, or maybe somewhere in the middle, however much you gained when you started, will probably be lost when you end. However, you will still have gained more muscle while you were on creatine, so don't think it was for nothing.

Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions, buddy invitation sent.

Yeah I don't plan on stopping. I was just curious. I mean creatine is pretty darn cheap.

And occasionally people get up in arms about how creatine is bad and sometimes it makes me think even though most all research supports its perfectly healthy for you. And I've only been on it for about 2 weeks but I haven't gained much maybe a pound. Taking 5g a day on workout days.
