    the tea is actually pretty good i think. soothing. sort of a peppermint/chamomile flavor for those of you who are still trying to decide whether you want to do it. the fiber drink really only bothered me the first two times. i just dont drink the last sip because the licorice taste is nasty strong and i gag when i drink it.
    I like the tea a lot. I am a tea drinker though. I have not experienced the feeling of it going through me. I usually cramp about ten minutes before I go. Except about five minutes ago I cramped then went right away.
    I drink the fiber with Cranberry/Pomagranite juice. I use a half glass of juice the put the fiber in stir then down it like a shot. Then I pour more juice in the glass and swish it around to get all the fiber off of the sides and drink that too. It really doesn't bother me at all. It's over in like five seconds.

      How was taking the whole cup of fiber Kat? I have to do that tomorrow and 4 pills. i'm dreading the pills, just because i hate taking them. although today i downed them like it was nothing.

        It is a little chunkier but I really don't take the time to stir it really good. I have a really bad gag reflex but it didn't make me gag at all. I could taste it a little stronger than usual but that cranberry juice really covers the taste. I don't even like Cranberry juice. Pills aren't hard for me to swallow and I took all four at the same time. But you can still just take one or two at a time. It's really not as bad as I was expecting it to be. And it's only for a month :) I already really like the results and would reccommend this to any of the people that ask me about it. I think my married friends are about to start it as well. Thanks so much Maura for starting this. I would have NEVER done this without this thread.

          i never would of done it with out this thread either. It's not like i never thought of doing something like this, but i wouldn't of actually tried doing it without all of the support on this site. thanks girls!

          I have a couple of people that are going to do it a few months before my wedding. it really isn't bad especially for 30 days. And i think i'm already starting to feel better.

            well i guess last night was a fluke....i took 3 pills this morning (day 4) and 3/4 scoop. seeped my tea for 4 min tonight too...nothing.
            today i put my fiber in fruit punch and tasted nothing. i bought apple juice today and will start doing that tomorrow, tho now that i think about it, cranberry would have been a better choice.
            the only result that i AM seeing (after 4 days, lol) is that my pouch isn't as hard as it was...it's a little mushier, but hasn't gone down.

              I still haven't recieved my shipment- I think that I get it tommorow- I am going to be a few days behind.

              I was thinking of starting hot yoga up at the same time to assist in making my new flat belly ab-licious!

                  The water is really important! I bought a liter of water and I refill it with my fridge water in the morning and bring it with me to work. I have already drank two glasses of water with the pills and fiber already at this point. Then when I get home I fill the liter back up and try and drink the rest of it before bed. SIGH! But I know it's super good for me and for my skin.

                  the water is SO important!!!!

                  danielle, buy a 1 liter bottle of evian or something and drink 2 of them per day. if you follow the directions correctly, you should drink 2 glasses of water (1/2 a liter) by the time you're done with your fiber. i typically drink one glass of water right after the pills, then do the fiber, then another glass of water. then you only have to drink one liter while at work and then the remaining half liter in the evening, then your tea.

                  that's the system ive been following and it works great for me. after following it for about a week, you shouldnt be peeing your brains out every half hour.
