From a recommendation I grabbed a tub of Jack3d which is basically lemonaid with a ton of caffeine, but it also contains creatine. After drinking just one dose with 8oz water, I am bloated the next day in my midsection.
I've taken creatine mono and creatine hydro individually before and didn't notice any bloating. I did try another mix last year (bascially kool-aid and creatine, no caffeine) and there was some bloating but I was able to get it down with diuretics.
Diuretics don't seem to be helping in this case. What's the deal? How can I reduce bloating while taking creatine?
Water in take is probably ~64oz avg on normal days.
