[quote="Shinobi"]Most likely the running. Creatine works by increasing the creatine stores in the muscle which are used during anerobic, high-intensity burst activity like weightlifting or sprints. AFAIK, there are no studies showing any significant benefit with creatine supplimentation for aerobic activities.
Well, I figured it was the running; but I have no doubt the creatine gave me the boost of "energy" to run faster, harder, and longer which, in turn, contributed to the fat loss. I took this brand http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/mm/xtra.html
, but not this product. I believe they have discontinued the running formulas. These have pretty much the same ingredients though. At first, they had a vegan one and then that was gone and the only ones available had honey and royal jelly. Anyway, it's not the same as "loading" with powdered creatine. I found it worked it great. The liquid running formula was not for muscle gain; it was for endurance and performance. Too bad they discontinued it. Last I heard, it wasn't selling well; and that was a couple years ago.
