Hi Sherry....I'm hooked on the capsules..much easier to use...and I always take with food.
I started with one capsule at supper for a few days, then added one to breakfast (I pretty much eat 2 main meals a day because I'm not on a "normal" work schedule anymore).
I could feel a bit of something the first two days...then nothing, so I added to breakfast for a week. Then I went to two at supper for two or so days, then two at breakfast for a week.
Then three, then four.
It was more difficult to adjust the powder, but it has lots more fibre per dosage...again...the caps are awesome for me.
I just hope they don't discontinue them...lol..because they were just on half price at Super Store..hmmm..time to email the company.
If so, I might do the Prodiem that pb4 uses....
