Creatine doesn't build muscle. And there's no way at all you could compare creatine to whey protein, two completely different things.

You haven't researched this at all have you?

Creatine just gives you water muscles.

Protein is a food source.

You should take protein after lifting, not necessarily whey protein. Whey protein is a supplement. If you have your diet worked out you shouldn't really need it.

How did I know you would respond with this? Yes, I know this, but Creatine adds additional water retention.

Nah, you have an amount you need for your size and activity level. Any excess will be stored as fat or used for energy.

Also, there is such a thing as too much protein, to the point of having negative effects. Everything in moderation.

As suggested above, a simple google search can help you with your needs, and estimate what you currently get in regular food. Then figure out if (or how much) additional protein is necessary.

Too much protein, and you risk hurting your health or your wallet.

Doesn't matter when you take it as long as you meet your macros throughout the day. The brotein window myth was debunked quite some time ago.

Protein is a macronutrient; you can't compare it to creatine.
