What way would you recommand using Creatine? With or without the loading phase? The guy at the supplement store said he'd recommand without the loading phase.

Loading is shown to raise creatine levels more efficiently.

With review of the appropriate literature we recommend the utilization of a loading period when supplementing with creatine. Loading should occur for 5 consecutive days, with individuals consuming 20 grams of creatine daily in 5 gram doses spread 3-4 hours apart. Such feeding protocols have been unequivocally shown to increase muscle creatine content and increase work capacity. Following a loading period, muscle creatine levels can be maintained with a 5 g dose daily each morning and an additional 5 g dose on days on which the individual is partaking in vigorous, high intensity exercise, such as weight training.

is it just me, or does anyone feel like the loading phase is a scam?

It's just you.
Regardless, science has the last word on what the best methods are, and science is in support of loading.
ive done both, i just felt jipped like i wasted money. i still load anyway if its been a while, like more than a month even though i feel jipped.
