A psyllium husk is the crushed seeds of a plant, and a great source of soluble fiber. They form bulk bulk in the intestines because the soluble fiber from psyllium husk forms a gel when mixed with liquid. Be sure you drink you water when you take them, to help things move along smoothly
I get psyllium in cap form at Target. A huge bottle is less than $5.00 and it works like a charm.
A few weeks after I started Atkins I was so uncomfortable and crampy I was ready to cry. I asked the girls here and they got me "going" in no time. I don't like the liquid stuff, but I've had good luck with the caps.
Sweat plus perseverance equals success!
