100 lb. Club - Cant Afford Benefiber, any cheaper alternatives?

I have a hard enough time buying a container of Soy Protein Powder for $12....now I have considered getting some Benefiber, but OMG....its expensive too!

Does anybody know of any fiber supplements to add to food or drinks that is cheaper? :(

Im poor!

You can get powdered psyllium husk (which is the only ingredient other than flavorings in Benefiber) for cheaper, especially at health food stores.

We buy the Equate brand of Metamucil at Walmart for about $6.00. It is psyllium husk, comes sugar free, and doesn't taste that bad. We mix it with water and a splash of cranberry juice and chug it down.

I just dropped $40 on a can of Arbonne orange fibre booster. I feel you pain.

I'm sorry to sound so dense, but will this do for a person?

Oh, and Pita09.... your haircolor looks so nice on you! I love it!

Just as a point of accuracy, Benefiber is wheat dextrin (gluten free), not psyllium. :)

Oh, that's right, I always mix it up with Metamucil...still, the effect should be just about the same, yes?
