    Well, flaxseed is all about the essential fatty acids, which is great, but fat does have calories. If you are on SS then I reckon you ought to check how much in calories you will be adding to your daily intake. Psyllium husks are good for no. 2's and are allowed on CD. I hope a CDC will come on and answer the flaxseed question.

    ... but not on a VLCD. I can't imagine that a CDC would say it's ok to have extra fats of ANY kind whilst SSing as the CD packs are nutritionally complete.

    If you want a natural digestive aid to help prevent constipation then I'd stick to psyllium husks :)
