Creatine Monohydrate: Why It is A Healthy Alternative to Steroids

For those of you lifting to gain muscle size and definition there is a right and wrong way to go about this. First of all I do not advise eating tons of “bad foods”, including pizza, or steak and cheese subs. The bottom line is if you eat too much of any food it is not healthy because you are missing out on nutrients from other foods. 

Just about every collegiate athlete and serious lifter faces the temptation of anabolic steroids. At the very least everyone knows the benefits to taking steroids; you get bigger and stronger faster. However,the drawbacks are severe: Infertility, possible weakening of bones, and hair loss all could occur due to the consumption of steroids.

While it is also risky, Creatine is a much safer option. It is important to drink significant amounts of water (about 12 8oz glasses a day). I found this article on body building.com extremely useful : http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/creatine.html

The main thing to take away from this article is this: It is important, when lifting for size and increased muscle mass that you take care of your body and only consume things that can be turned into positive, muscle building nutrients.
