what does everyone else think about this? is it possible or could it be the opposite?
I got some stretch marks when I was fasting, after about 2 days in, so I know it is true that you can get them from losing weight to fast!
I never believed it till I had it happen, I havent done much research on creatine yet but I think the best thing to aviod getting them while losing weight is to get good nutrition and keep well hydrated, get plenty of minerals, vitamins, enzymes & omegas, I read that MSM powder combine with vitamin C helps our bodies produce collagen and heal, MSM also benefits hair, skin and nails growth, MSM powder helps to also soften the mebrains to our cell walls to get more vitamins/nutrients in and helps to release free-radicals that might be trapped in our cells, MSM is also a detoxifier, so its best to start off slowly and work up the dose a little bit but not too high, I read that people who started ingesting 15000 mg's a day, their hair acutally started to fall out! but I also hear a lot of good things people say about MSM.
The best way to get nutrients I believe is through our food, raw food in-paticular, by cooking raw fruits and vegetable, we remove a lot of the vitamins, minerals & enzymes our bodies need to heal and be healthy!
