    Hi

    Just bought this from holland and barrat just wondering what quantities everyone else takes?
    Do you all take 6 capsules a day? Seems like a lot considering the lack of food :)

    Why are you buying/using these? Is it because the frequency changed, or because you don't feel right?

    I am asking because although my habits dramatically changed, I am putting this on the small amount of food and since I don't feel bad or "full", I don't bother. Should I?

    Thats the stuff I got... in powder form.
    I only used one teaspoon in soup yesterday.
    I will have that amount for a couple of days, and if nothing improves I will use 2 tsps :)

    I got them because I had an incredably runny tummy :( that was driving me mad.

    Psyllium husk can help both constipation and the diarohhea(sp).
    I guess if you dont suffer from either there may be no point in using it, but it really is a personal decision, as to use/not use.
    The link posted by Divster is excellent and well worth a read, as it helps explain things much better than I could :eek:

    I take 2 tablets with a large glass of water an hour before my last shake of the day, and it really helps! No constipation for me on this diet as yet, where as on Cambridge, I had issues! :)
