    I asked this question not too long ago and was given the following advice :

    Take the stated dose (2 tablets, three times a day) when you take your shakes/soups to help bulk it out a bit.

    Hope that helps. Im only on day 1 but im gonna follow this advice

    A mixture lol!
    Hiya

    I open the capsules up and add about three or four to a soup or shake to make it thicker. Then I drink a lot more water to make it go down.

    Probably not what should be done but it works all the same !!

    If the powder makes you gag, is that cos you've been following the directions on it? I just mean that I followed advice from ppl here and love it!
