In this video I answer the question “What Happens After You Stop Taking Creatine?”. A lot of guys are worried that they’re gonna start losing all the hard gained muscle which is definitely not true. So what really happens when you stop taking creatine?
A lot of you guys asked me about how to setup your diet to gain muscle without gaining fat so it was time to put it all together into one video.
What Is The Best Creatine and How to Take It For Maximum Results?
Studies and in-depth research on Creatine: https://examine.com/supplements/creatine/
When you stop supplementing creatine it can take up to 2 months for the creatine to completely dissapear from your system.
This depends on your diet, exercise, genetics and many other factors.
Some of the visual differences you’ll noticed are related to reduction in size.
Remember, creatine does stimulate intracellular water retention. The effects vary between individuals and a lot of people will report slightly fuller appearance of their muscles. This effect will dissapear over time.
And how much of it will be gone depends on how much you gained in the first place.
There’s a big variety of responses to creatine supplementation. Some individuals notice huge differences while there’s also 20-30% of people who don’t notice any difference.
In terms of Gym performance out of the 16 studies, the average increase in reps performed while taking creatine was about 15% more than those taking a placebo.
And I personally know from working with over a 100 clients that the increases in the number of reps performed can vary a lot. Some guys can do 3-4 extra reps while me personally I notice very little difference in training.
Any boost you’ve noticed in your training will slowly go away after you stop supplementation.
Besides weight training performance and appearance creatine has a wide range of benefits inside the nervous and endocrine system.
Supplementing creatine can significantly enhance cognition and delay mental fatigue. Some studies show increases in I.Q, attention span, working memory and reduced mental fatigue.
Over time you will lose any of these benefits after you stop supplementation.
As for your actual lean muscles gain are concern, it’s highly unlikely that your going to notice any real decreases.
This is assuming that you continue with your training and eating plan in the same as previously.
Creatine is very efficient at getting water into the intramuscular compartment, and there are some instances of muscle cramping that can occur when too little fluid is consumed while you’re supplementing with creatine. Aside from that there hasn’t been any documented negative side-effects with healthy individuals.
The question is why would you stop taking creatine?
It’s affordable, proven to work, and has no side-effects.
I recommend creatine supplementation even for individuals who don’t do weight training simply for the cognition benefits.
