Why do you want to: Take creatine? A balanced diet of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, legumes, beans, lentils, small amounts of lean meats is more than adequate to maintain or increase muscle mass. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise about 30 minutes/day. Dietary supplements are not needed for otherwise healthy people.
