So I've been taking creatine for about 2 months now.
However, I've been terrible with my water intake. I definitely don't drink a gallon of water day, let alone half a gallon sometimes. I don't think I've gained the ~4-6 lbs of water weight from creatine (could really use that extra weight)
If I just buckle down and start drinking more water now (continuing to take 5g a day), will the water weight still come? Or do I need to cycle off creatine for a while before trying again?
