    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
