    When supplementing with creatine, the muscles "bloat" and appear larger?

    5-6grams a day shouldn't give you too much bloating, where as if you loaded it you'd probably have gained some water. Get CEE.

    Some people have worse bloat than others. But yes..that's how creatine works..more water to the muscles.

    I hope you don't mean that's why creatine works...

    The osmotic effects are definately a big part of it.
