Say I do everything perfectly, and I use Creatine, ALA, fiber, multi, C, E and calcium, along with xenadrine. Would it be possible for me to lose 2 lbs of fat per week and only lose a neglible amount of muscle in the process? What are the chances I could do this (im not doing cardio BTW, im going to let the diet take care of the fat loss so i wont lose muscle)? ANd If I would be able to pull it off, how early in the week would I have to hit ketosis? I carb up on sat and sun.

How much fat do you have to start with? If you're say 25% bodyfat, you can easily lose 2lb a week (without much lean loss) with just diet and no supplementation. I'm not sure but I think creatine will slow fat loss though.

Incredibly unlikely IMO. Unless you are significantly overweight, losing weight at this pace will lead to a fair amount of muscle loss; I'd guess maybe 50:50 from my experience(In this case, my own experience may be misleading me here.) I've seen some claim results similar to those you've listed, but I have doubts about the veracity of the claims. Personally, I'd shoot for about 1lb per week MAX.

But let's hear from some other people...

I can't find calipers anywhere, i have searched timmonium/towson and cant find them. I can't order stuff online. I used some online estimation thing where i put in my weight and waist and it said I was 20% at 200lbs. I carry most of my fat on my waist though, so im not sure how accurate it is.

How will creatine slow fat loss, i havent heard this?

I've been reading up on the chemical actions of creatine and creatinephosphate in the body and how it reacts to ADP and it seems to me that it would inhibit the body's need to burn fat.

Note I'm only looking at the chemical reactions, I don't know if it DOES inhibit fat loss or not. I've posted in the supplement boards and nobody responded. Oh well.

I think it's possible. Your Bf has to be higher than 11% otherwise I would suspect some muscle would be stripped away as well.

In my experience I lost 2 pounds a week for the first 2-3 weeks.
Then it plateaued at about .5 pounds. I never really tweaked my diet or exercise so who knows what could have happened.

From personal experience I can tell you that creatine slowed fat loss in my body. Actually, I gained weight using creatine while on xenadrine and following the same diet I was losing weight with. It might just be that my body responds well (or not so well) to creatine, but I myself wouldn't use it while dieting ever again.

I just had 3 scoops of nlarge after my 2.5 hr depletion workout, i think i am going to die. i prefer being in ketosis, it was much more fun than this. i dont look forward to eating carbs all night and all day tommorow. i hate carb ups.

after reading this thread, i might just take creatine during my carb ups. the only reason people take it during the week is so they wont look flat, right?
