    Recently, on Dr. Oz, he encouraged dieters to drink a glass of Metamucil 15 minutes before the evening meal. It helps make you feel full apparently without adding extra calories. Has anyone tried this and found it helpful?

    I have a cup of milk with metamucil between meals to satisfy an appetite. I keep forgetting to try Dr. Oz's suggestion to have it before a meal to fill up the tummy.
