Creatine and Hunger

I was just curious to know if anyone else noticed this when taking creatine.

For months I have taken 5g of creatine daily. When I went on a ski trip in December I didn't take it with me and noticed that the excessive hunger I had between meals while on it went away.

It could just be coincidence and I wasn't doing my daily Crossfit workouts but I was on the slopes for 5 hours every day so its not like I wasn't burning calories or getting exercise. When I came back I started back on Creatine and Crossfit and noticed within a couple of days that the hunger is back.

Don't get me wrong I am not complaining. I average 3500 calories a day to maintain my weight at 165-170. It was just something that I noticed and was curious if anyone else feels the same thing.

Re: Creatine and Hunger

I think it was more likely a result of not doing your workouts than not taking your creatine. You may have been one the slopes all day, but light aerobic activity can actually suppress hunger, and it won't rapidly drain your glycogen stores the way an intense workout can.

Re: Creatine and Hunger

I have never heard of creatine having any effect on cravings or appetite.
