Re: What do Amino Acids do?
Are you doing weight training? You will only burn more energy if you have MORE muscle, not if you're maintaining muscle. Instead of taking amino acid tablets you'd be better off just eating more protein. If you don't eat a lot of meat, here are some alternatives: fish, skimmed milk, low-fat yoghurt, tofu (or another meat replacement), cottage cheese, nuts (but don't eat too much, they're bursting with calories), soy beans...
Protein in itself doesn't help weight loss. If you're doing weight training, protein will build muscle, so your metabolism will speed up.
Stop taking the creatine and get your diet sorted out, you don't sound like you should be using creatine yet.
