Everything i have read says to do it after. Your muscles will be needing it when you get done working out.

I take mine after the guy at the GNC and the Trainer said to do it then because it will help rebuild and restore you muscles and you will not get that sore feeling.

By all means AFTER the workout. The protein hit makes you feel a lot better if you are crashing a little after the workout.
It may be cheaper for you to just get a recovery drink if you are buying to different products. You can get them at GNC or The Vitamin Shoppe or most health food stores.

You should take it after the exercise.

I take protein and creatine during and after

Protein is not the body's preferred fuel source during exercise (carbohydrates are). Protein should be taken AFTER workouts because it aids in muscle recovery. :)

No really, it doesn't matter.

Anyone saying any different doesn't know the first thing about nutrition or even why they are taking protein and creatine.

Edit to add: If you're using MFP as standard and your workout calories are not already included in your deficit calculation, then of course you should eat them.

no...it does not matter. And it is highly unlikely that you need to be taking creatine.
