    I haven't lifted in like 2 weeks because I've been on vacation or busy as fuck. I ran out of whey too. College starts in about a month and I want to get as strong and in shape as I can naturally. I'm also joining the Marines and going to boot next summer. I'm going to start lifting again, but I'm not sure if I should just buy more whey or try creatine. I hear its best when you take both at the same time, but I cannot afford that.

    I had GNC whey and I saw some improvements but nothing major. I keep reading that creatine will give you major gains fast (like 2 weeks). How true is that?

    I can get a lot of whey for about $50 that will last me awhile, I assume creatine is expensive and goes quickly.

    And I bought 2 tubs of 325g creatine mono for like $5, and it's a 5g serving... Not expensive, imo.

    first and foremost you need protein. if you aren't gettin enough of it in your diet, then get whey (GNC is overpriced). if you're gettin enough protein from your regular diet and think you will continue to do so, then go ahead and get creatine.

    creatine isnt' some magically legal drug that will get you mass, you still have to bust ass. unless your a total gym noob, the gains you see in 2 weeks will be marginal at best, creatine or not.

    and no, creatine is cheap

    My creatine lasted me a while, I'm still on my first container of it and I'm finishing up my fourth of protein . . .

    I bought like 6 month supply of creatine for like $20 (note: shitty tasting creatine that was on sale)

    Go to VitaminShoppe and pick up some creatine monohydrate for like $20. If you don't like the results it's just $20. No biggie.

    But if you're talking about "which one" then protein is a must... there's no substitute (except protein from solid food).

    They are exclusive from one another, and aren't even in the same category of supplements.

    Anything beyond tuna & oatmeal* is not natural.


    *Steel Cut oats, however, are not natural. Mother Nature never intended for oats to be altered in such a manner as to induce mass muscle growth, and ab formation.
