Hi all,

I trialled the Metamucil the day before yesterday. One teaspoon in the morning and another in the evening. Then half a sachet of Movicol before bed.

Yesterday morning... :gah: Too bulky and firm! Did myself some damage unfortunately and feel like an idiot.

So. All plans are off with the Metamucil, but I am today trailing the Acacia Senegal...

Oh no....when I introduce new stuff to my system I always try very small doses at first and only build up if ok. Make sure to drink plenty. Perhaps only take one dose or a half of the acacia to start.

Yes, i would have done that if I wasn't a fool. You did warn me!

I've had one teaspoon of Acacia this morn, and will leave it at that. I'm just going to keep on the Movicol alone if this don't work. :(
