    What happens when you supply creatine while cutting?

    This question is somewhat a mixture for both forums, so I decide to post in this category..

    OK, a quick description of the benefits in taking Creatine is that it aids a person to gain size, strength and endurance. When a person is on a Cutting plan, it is very hard for him to mantain all his muscle mass and strength.. so I was wondering, what will happen if a person decides to start using Creatine when he is in the middle of a cut?

    Will he experience the (positive) effects of Creatine and at the same time continue to get lean?

    I always take creatine - especially on a cut. Anything with no calories that helps the muscles work better = good.

    Same goes for salt.

    They both force water into the muscle cells, so they're useful while cutting.

    Previously I had linked an article (which did not mention the exact study) that suggests taking creatine can raise your RMR by 100 calories a day while exercising.

    Sounds worth it.
