Is it me or creatine?

Ok, so I have been on Creatine for about 3 days now. I am not sure if it is just me or it is the effects of creatine but I feel like I have a wee bit more strength. I also feel my abs getting hard from ab work the next day. It’s weird. I’m not sure if the effects can be ‘felt’ so quickly or if I am working out harder or getting stronger. Whatever it is, here’s my review on Beast Nutrition Creatine product:
– Tasty. Tastes like citus gatorade but not too tangy. Has a nice mild after taste which doesn’t feel acidic on my tongue or tummy
– Very mixable. Ice + water + 3 shakes = perfect
– I would say it’s affordable. I mean, how many creatine products actually taste this good?
– Does not make me bloat. I read that creatine makes a person bloat some times but with this, no bloating or discomfort. No hyperventilating too 😉 LOL

Overall : 9/10
Didn’t give a 10 because I felt that there were way too many ingredients which I cannot pronounce! Haha! It’s just hard to do research on every single thing try put in there you know?? But I mean, I don’t care. It’s creatine. Not a fat burner! I couldn’t die from it.

Am going for a full physical check tomorrow. A bit nervous… They are doing a 3D scan of my heart, lungs, liver, kidney and etc. Also detecting cancer cells and checking on my oxygen thinggie while running on the treadmill (omg…I haven’t ran on a treadmill in a while!) it’s 7am to 6pm. Geez… They going to open me up or something??? No doubt my ass will get probed but I’ve had stuff going up my ass before. Also got pap smear and all that crap. Long day…fasting tonight all the way till Friday evening. Oh my lord!!! I am so going to die of hunger. In fact, I might get so hungry that my stomach growls so hard it makes people think that there’s a tremor going on.

We’ll see. Hope my body is still in tip top shape at 28!

Hi, so what are your thoughts about creatine? I am starting to consume some creatine. Not the full dose as stated on the label as I am a 123lb girl and I ain’t going to consume a 200lb man’s dose.

I do want to make some gains at the gym as I feel that my muscles are kinda ‘flat’. You know, typical Asian genes! It doesn’t mean that I don’t have strength, just that it’s lacking a bit of oomph! I’m not into supplements that much but IT think it could help. no harm trying! Gaining a bit of mass is what I want. No doubt that my body is fairly athletic, just wish I could have another 5lbs of muscle.

I am currently taking brand, BEAST and it tastes good. Citrusy and I drink half of it prior to workout, and the other half during and after my workout even though it says one scoop before and one scoop after workout. I’ve heard stuff about bloating and etc with regards to creatine but I haven’t experienced any bloat or what not. The only bloat I get is when I have PMS!
