After much research, I decided to start on a creatine mono (prolab). I was going to give it a month test and see what the results were, but after 2 weeks I am seriously debating about dropping it due to the bloating issue.
I started it exactly 2 weeks ago and I am experiencing some genuine bloating. I?ve gone up 3 pounds, and my lifts are getting better each session, but I honestly think that is a placebo effect because I?m putting much more effort into my sessions that I was before.
I?m not loading it, just taking 5g post workout with my shake. I started noticing some bloating 4 days ago at night, but figured it was normal thanks to food intake during the day etc, but this morning before I ate breakfast, I looked seriously bloated, and after thinking about it, I?ve looked bloated in the morning for the past few days.
So, for me, I?m not sure that the bloating is worth it. My only wonder is if it will decrease after a few more weeks of usage?
