    Curios to get the SS communityís POV on creatine monohydrate and alcohol.

    Donít think Iíve seen creatine addressed on the forums (at least not on the first several pages of the nutrition section) and havenít heard it addressed in the first dozen-or-so podcasts. Having a 300 IQ, I can only assume this is because creatine is unnecessary, but curious as to why? Is it because if youíre getting sufficient protein, youíre also getting enough creatine? Also wonder if anyone has a take on recent studies indicating creatine could have positive benefits on cognition?

    And as for alcohol, I get that itís badómomma told me so. But how bad from a lifting perspective? Is it like a ďnot good buy you can get byĒ type of bad, or a ďthis will prohibit strength adaptationĒ type of bad?

    Creatine is advantageous and has been recommended in various places. Drinking isn't an issue, heavy drinking is and heavy drinking often is a big one. You are not going to get sufficient creatine from diet.

    Thanks for the reply. New to the forum and didn't notice the search feature until after submitting, so apologies. Feel free to delete thread if it keeps things tidy.

    Feels more like 305 now that I can use the search. Three plates soon.
