    1 Gallon of water? Thats your problem. The recommended average is 1 1/2 for regular adults. Thats not even mentioning if you workout. And water during your workouts in the gym don't count towards the 1 1/2.

    personally ive never heard of anyone cramping up when taking creatine but anything is possible, i find it easier when split the amount of creatine into about two-three servings throughout the day,,(1 scoop in the am and 1scoop pm) the cramping might start if you take the full amount at once and your stomach gets full from the water in it...try it that way for about a week and see what happens... and ill agree you have to increase your water intake throughout the day
