Creatine dosages:

  • 20 g / d for 5 - 7 days ("loading phase")
  • 5 g / d for remainder of cycle ("maintenance phase")
  • A more customized approach is to determine dose based on mass. A common formula is:
  • 0.3 g / kg / d for 5 - 7 days
  • 0.03 g / kg / d for remainder of cycle

Thus, an individual weighing two-hundred (200) pounds would require 200 lb * (1 lb / 2.2 kg) * 0.3 g = 27 grams per day for the loading phase, then 2.7 grams per day for the maintenance phase. 

If your are not able to have 4-5 ltrs water then you will face cramping issue so thats why this is more important to have enough water in a day.
