Feel free to include psyllium husk in your diet.. Works wonders and after a day or so you should feel eliminated well.
Konsyl brand (pictured below) is the one I use in my "medicine chest".. You can find it at any Walmart for about $14 and its pure psyllium husk, whereas Metamucil is half sugar.
I havent used it in awhile but when I do, I find that I prefer to even put it in soups or gravies. It also works great in a chocolate milk and has a texture to a chocolate malt.. I highly recommend it this way as opposed to putting it i a clear liquid the way the directions state.. but however you take it will be fine.
