    I do....use LARGE amounts of water with a tbsp or two by itself....mix quickly....drink even more quickly before it coagulates into a blob of undrinkable shyt ....its a challenge every time to get it down in time

    I add a teaspoon to a small amount of water (about 200ml) mix it up and drink before the water thickens into wallpaper paste.

    Make sure you follow with lots of water. Psyllium husks without adequate water will have the opposite effect and can promote constipation.

    I use the sugar free Metamucil (same thing just orange flavored). I add 2 scoops to my vanilla protein shake at bedtime and in the morning. Tastes like a thick Dreamsicle.

    is metamucil soluble fiber? or insoluble fiber? I think some of those brand name fiber supps are worthless since they are not the right type of fiber you need...I can usually tell which is which by how they mix, the soluble mixes like nothing....and the insoluble mixes like glue the insoluble fibers help your colon health and cause you to go to the bathroom regular....the soluble really don't do that, but do other helpful things...I take it to be regular due to high protein or lack of carbs/fiber in the diet....so I use insoluble or psyllium fiber.....

    Yea, actually has no taste in Muscle Milk, just be sure to add enough water so its drinkable and drink it fast. Turns into gelatinous goo after about 2 minutes..so dilution and speed are your friends.

    I almost died, and I am very serious, doing this. The tbsp of powder stuck to my throat like cement. The more water I drank, didnt help, it was like glued to my throat. I guess my throat was dry at the time, I don't remember. I drank so much water trying to wash it down, where I was puking water. My airway was severely restricted, roomate called 911 because I was struggling to breath. I used a straw, stuck it down my throat to scrap it off the best I keep. I had a big enough airway to then breath, but it took a few hours for everything to return back to normal. I was scared for my life, i was saying my good byes, no joke.

    Exactly. That's very dangerous and I'm glad you're okay.

    I chug 25 grams every evening.

    Trick is to make sure you use the whole and not the powder and drink fast.

    Always drink on empty stomach was drinking that much.

    And what I mean by fast is, mix it fast and drink asap before it becomes thick. Make sure its alot of water as well.

    I've been taking the Now brand Whole Psyllium Husks for years, not the powder version. I take two heaping tablespoons along with 1 tablespoon of the sugar free Metamucil orange for flavor. The Metamucil is the same thing but its the ground powder, not whole husks. I mix it with 40 oz of water. I've got to drink it everyday now or I just don't go to the bathroom.

    **** you. Even if it's not on your container it's still common sense. "I'm a hard ass, I'll just swallow dry powder that could choke me. I'm tough". Twat.

    Oh really? So "like a boss" has another meaning in your tiny little world? Apparently back pedaling does since I sure as he'll haven't done any of that. You ****ing douchebag.

    This is the same exact same thing I do. It works well and doesn't taste bad at all.

    Before the little derail goes any further, Bruiser and I have worked out things via PM.

    I apologize for the derail, sorry if I came across as aloof about this issue. I only intended to post how I take it. With everything we do, be damn careful-nobody wants anyone else to have an issue like the poster above.

    Learn, teach, lead.

    My issue sucked.. stupid idea.. i don't even remember why I did it in the first place. Another funny story though..

    Back in college, one of my roomates played football and worked out but was stupid with diet and all. It was like 9pm.. he was making a myofusion shake before going out to a party. I told him ill make it really thick, a good weight gainer. He was trying to gain weight for football. I mixed, god i swear like 10 tablespoons of psyllium husk in it.

    He comes back to our apartment about 2 hours later, he thought he was going into labor.. he was having massive stomach contractions. It blocked him up so bad, he couldn't ****. The next day, we bought a suppository.. he shoved it up his ass.. he **** so much, you couldnt even see water in the toilet bowel.. i swear if he didn't flush half way through.. he would have over flowed the toilet.

    Looking back now, it was VERY stupid idea and i was praying nothing bad would happen.. scared me.. but since nothing bad happened.. it was funny as hell.
