Yea I've increased water intake to the 3-4 ltrs a day and cut creatine out of my diet too. I'm always researching about it and it seems I'm doing everything rite, except the 5-6 small portion meals to keep my metabolism up, So Ive started to do that, hopefully that will help
Yeah the water and the meal portions is all u need along with the core ab work out. Burn it out. Push ya self in the workouts and get those meals in. its going to come off. Let me know how it goes.

So if say I have 3 poached eggs w/whole meal toast for brekky (wich is usually about 11/12pm for me then every 2-3 hours I could have 85g tin of tuna in brine or spring water, or an apple/pear or protien shake in milk? Then a lean chicken with salad dinner then tin tuna or protien shake couple hours after that. Should be around 5 meals.
Yup! As long as you are eating every 2-3hours. Be sure to get some nuts in there as well another good source of protein.

Cheers, are u regular with bulking and cutting phases? I only need to shed a few kilos at the most! I figured I will stay lean while I'm off with a broken wrist so I don't put on too much fat.
Not a total expert.lol My ex was an athlete so I learned a lot from seeing him train and stay fit. Now I follow the same habits for myself.

Why cut creatine?

 

if it's fat you want to lose cutting creatine won't make any difference, may as well keep it in to make your muscles look full.

Creatine can cause you to retain water-- it may make your muscles look "full" (due to stored water), but it can also enhance any 'chub' that you got. 

Try using a Kre-Alkalyne creatine (instead of monohydrate) to get the benefits without the bloat.

Also the 5-6 meals per day thing is a MYTH! If you enjoy eating like that, then it is fine... but there is no actual proof that 5-6 meals per day does anything besides make people go insane from obsessively planning. 

As long as you meet your calories and macros at the end of the day, it doesn't matter what time you ate your meals.

My point was Creatine has no effect on fat loss. I know what Creatine does.

 

A competitive bodybuilder would only manipulate water a few days before stepping on stage.

 

The average casual bodybuilder doesn't really need to cut out creatine, you can still get into great condition while using it.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
