But you have to remember thats not all Xyience is, Creatine is only a SMALL portion of what is in Xyience, so it's not like just plain creatine. But still, the risks are there.
    Yup, most kids I know who take creatine just take one of those 1-gallon bottles that milk comes in(water does too) and fills it up with water. They work out with that baby by their side.

    More info from the Z3CH... YAY!!!!

    For many rather small people (skinny or short or whatever) you may find it hard to start getting bulk. When I started working out, I grew 10 pounds, reached a max, and worked out for like 6 months without gaining anything. I was an idiot, I wasted a whole lot of time. For many people like this, they will start thinking about taking things like protein, creatine, steroids, or whatever muscle-enhancing things they can get their hands on. One thing to think about before you take these is the question "Are you eating right?" The main factor of gaining muscle is what you eat. It needs something to turn into muscle, right? Before relying on supplements, make sure you are on a good diet that will give you enough calories, carbs, and protein. It's good to take things like whey protein if you can't always get good meals with protein, but try not to become reliant on supplements that provide you with chemicals.
    Now let's see if there is anything else I can add... ;D

    Cool
    absolutely correct Z3ch, people want to build muscle and lose weight at the same time. So they eliminate carbs from their diet but you forget you need carbs to have energy, you can eliminate the bad carbs by eating right but don't take out everything that has to do with them.

    Yes definately changing you're diet helps, but you dont have do. Its just better.
    What's wrong with the tacos? Why do people compare this to other stuff? Why makes it special? I haven't eat tacos for 3 years. I might try to eat again. It's good though.

    Wow, almost no weight loss tips though

    I'll contribute

    Almost every diet "plan" out there is ********. They are complicated and require you to know the ingrediants of what you are eating.

    But losing weight is extremley simple. Well, for fat that is. Thoughout this "mini-article", whenever i say "weight" I mean "fat mass". And when ever I say "calorie", I mean "Kilo-Calorie".

    There is one basic rule that our bodies follow. If you take in less calories than you consume, you will lose fat. Dosent matter if you eat 1900 calories of fat and nothing else. If you consume or "use up" 2000 calories that day, then you will have 100 less calories of fat at the end of the day.

    But how many calories a day will you use up? Well, you body will use a minimum amount of calories a day for puropses such as making your heart beat, breathing, etc. To find this number, use this equation:
    w * 12 =l
    Code:
    Where:
    w= your body weight in pounds
    l= the calories you burn by living
    Keep in mind that the result is just an approximation. More muscell= More calories burned, but the amount is negligable.

    After that, you will have to add up every exercise worth noting. Just use the calorie chart on the first page of this topic to estimate it.

    Then it's just a matter of staying below that number.

    But how much weight are you losing?

    Well, a pound of fat is about 3600 calories. So if you use 250 calories more than you take in every day, you will lose 5 pounds in 72 days. Ouch. Try to jog to lower that, or just walk more often. Buy everything you can from a local store, preferably about a mile away from your house. Then once your in shape, start jogging along sidewalks or country roads. Remember to take a cell with you in case you get hurt or lost.

    Here's some articles on how to lose weight:

    http://home.howstuffworks.com/calorie.htm
    http://health.howstuffworks.com/fat-cell.htm
    http://home.howstuffworks.com/fat.htm




    By the way, creatine sucks. Premenant results are always better. Just do push ups, curl ups, and lift on a total gym or something with your arms. Also jog/run for you legs, don't lift for your legs unless your a sprinter.

    I lifted for my legs when I did Track. It helped me throw further for shotput and discus. Lifting for that is great for getting that extra power in your throws. More so for shotput than discus. Discus is more of a momentum thing.

    All I have is a weight bench and a bar. I curl and bench using pyramids.

    By pyramids, I mean :

    For example, I would bench
    95 pounds 10 times, then
    100 pounds 8 times
    105 pounds 6 times
    110 pounds 4 times
    115 pounds 2 times

    And as I get comfortable with that, I move up to a higher weight.
    Those who fear, those who fail.

    No difference between the two.

    is the w * 12 =l thing true?

    so if i weight 165 pounds i "automatically burn" roughly 2000 calories a day? Just by living?

    Code:
    165 * 12 = 1980 calories

    I've noticed that when I get out and help the neighbors or some friends with projects (landscaping, moving things) that it helps me stay tone. This of course to compliment the running, biking and such that I also do. I say keep your heart rate up and do what you enjoy. For me that's trail running in Colorado and I'll just stop for a couple of minutes halfway through and do some pushups and such and wala.
