    what?
    I just started taking cee about a week ago. I am taking it in the recommended dosage, 2 teaspoons (5g) per serving once a day. Or should I be doing 1 teaspoon twice a day?

    I find that when I take it on off days it seems like I just shit it right out. Are you supposed to take it right after/before a meal?

    Also, is it okay to take it with my protein shake in a glass of milk?

    2 tsp != 5g

    you should not shit out cee.

    personal preference. though your muscles are primed for nutrient intake post workout.

    i take it after, nothing wrong with it in protein shake but i put oj in my mouth and just toss the dose in. i always feel like i'm losing all the shit stuck on the glass when im done with my shake :o

    From what I have found on the internet, take it with just water. I take my creatine with water. The best way I have found it to boil about 3oz of water and then spoon in the CEE. Then pour that in your water bottle. This way you get all the CEE.

    I just mix it and the di-arg malate with orange juice and chug it 15-30 minutes before each workout.

    I thought that Orange Juice was something that you definitely shouldn't drink it with?

    There's nothing wrong with taking creatine with any kind of juice, why would you think otherwise?

    People said that with creatine monohydrate because the acidity will make it degrade to creatinine faster....but the stomach is a hell of a lot more acidic than some fucking OJ. CEE doesn't have the problem with degradation.

    I was just going by what it says on the bottle. I got it from BAC and it says 2 level teaspoons has 5g of cee.

    I don't think I am absorbing all the cee when I notice my bowels. Should I take less, maybe 1 teaspoon or break up the dosage, maybe twice a day instead of once?

    From what I understand 5g a day isnt really necessary. My canister says 1/4tsp = 550mg of CEE. I just eyeball 1 teaspoon and it seems to work fine.

    Thanks.

    Yea, I am gonna try and lower the dosage. Because a lot of it is obviously just passing through my system now.
