    Hi Vintella,
    I bought the Psyllium husks (not the tablets) from healthspan over the internet. Sometimes I put them in my savoury drink (don't leave it too long otherwise it will look if you are eating wallpaper glue) It is also nice in a hot banana,toffee,vanilla shake. I call it my porridge.

    I was told by my friend who is currently in the RTM stage that the water flavourings really help with "movements" as well?

    YEP works for me too

    I've found that the water flavourings help in that department. I'm lucky that I haven't needed any laxatives, psyllium or anything else. I use the water flavourings, I have quite a lot about half way through the week and then in all my water the day before my weekly weigh in.

    Make sure you can be near a loo, not stuck in a long meeting or on a train etc.
    Gets the movement going for me every time!:sign0131:

    While we are on the subject, how often should these, ahem, *movements* be happening?

    I assume that, seeing as there's hardly any waste product in the packs, it's not going to stay regular?
