no not all fat just watch what your eatting, the ala in it will help you burn it. I gain lean muscle all the time while on it.

so when you bulk do you look fat or do you look muscular? i have always been one of those pretty lean and skinny guys

If you've always been lean and skinny, I wouldn't worry about the sugars in cell-tech, although you will lose some muscularity from the water weight gained while on cell-tech.

When i was on cell tech i gained a total of 10 pounds. THe only problem was more than half was water and fat. I didn't like it too much, but i think that was due to my diet.

You can formulate your own cell-tech for half the cost. Here is what you need:
1. Pure creatine monohydrate powder (unflavored) - I prefer micronized creatine which is available from various manufacturers. Look for the "Creapure" logo.
2. Pure dextrose or Gatorade powder (if you use pure dextrose you may want to add a teaspoon or half a teaspoon of Koolaid or lemonade mix to it to help the flavor)
3. ALA capsules or powder (powder is available from Beyond a Century but has a burning sensation when you swallow it, but is much cheaper)
4. Optional: Vitamin C tablets or pure powder (BAC carries this as well)
Mix either 2-3 scoops of Gatorade powder, or enough servings of Dextrose for at least 30g of carbs (you really don't need 75g unless you feel like you need to) with 10g of creatine powder. Add 1 level scoop of ALA powder, or enough for ~200mg. Add water (and optional flavoring). Also, add your Vitamin C powder or take your tablet before hand. Stir until the ALA and creatine dissolve fully and drink.
ALA, Creatine & Vitamin C powder is available from BAC.
They should also be available from your favorite supplement shops elsewhere.

The optimum time to take Cell-tech or anyother creatine/sugar based mix is after a workout were your body needs the simple carbs anyway. so even if your not bulking you needs these carbs after a workout or "bye-bye birdie" to the muscles.

That is right. Your body will use up the fat, and carbs from the sugar, so don't worry about it. Plus if your bulking, be prepared to put on some fat. If you eat clean, your body shouldn't store much fat.
