    Creatine -- Appropriate Amount

    Searched high and low for the answer on this...

    Simple question: How much creatine do you take per day?

    I just bought some pure creatine monohydrate from Walmart (vs super expensive amplified creatine from GNC) and it says 1 teaspoon.

    Enough? Or maybe a couple teaspoonos per day?

    I"m 208 lbs, lifting heavy.

    Thanks.

    And apologize because I'm sure this has been asked a couple thousand times.

    Take 5g (1 heaping teaspoon) daily. You can load if you wish, but there's no need. I consume a cyclic diet, so I load 20g in on carbup days, and don't bother taking it the rest of the days, but that's me.

    at 208lbs you may need to go up to 10grams daily.

    If you find that creatine monohydrate does not work well for you and/or gives you any unwanted side effects, i.e. GI issues, bloating, please give Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL (CEE) a try!

    I would stick with 10g. I was using that at weight and saw better results with 10g instead of 5. I also didnt take it on the days I didnt train.

    well that was a mistake, had you taken it every day you probably would have been fine with only 5gms.

    Why was it a mistake? Does the dosage matter all that much as long as you stay saturated and don't overdo it?

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?
