At the moment I am on a hypocoloric diet, steadily losing weight. At the rate I'm going I still have a couple months, maybe more, to go. I'm hitting the weights to try and make sure I minimize muscle loss, but as would be expected I'm not really increasing my numbers much. I currently supplement with whey protein and fish oil. My question is, would it be worth it for me to also get some creatine while I'm still losing weight? Or should I wait until I get down to the weight I'm aiming for, then take it as I start to try putting on muscle? As far as I know, creatine helps with your ability to perform more reps and sets, and helps you recover faster, which helps you to up your volume in the gym and thus improve your gains. However it seems to me a hypocaloric diet will possibly negate these effects. Perhaps there's something else about creatine I'm missing that will still make it useful for me while I'm losing weight? *EDIT* And if anyone knows of a good website from which I can order creatine in the US without $8 in shipping! (t-nation) I'd appreciate the info.
