Iam a female, 18yrs old and desperately wants to lose weight. I'm taking meta mucil 3x a day before meals. Is it effective for weight loss?

Should help some &.. Taking metamucil with 2 glasses of water about 1/2 hour before meals will create a sense of fullness so should reduce your appetite. What you eat is important too. See http://www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/what-is-a-nutritarian-diet.Aspx also see www.Huffingtonpost.Com/andrew-weil-md/carbohydrates-weight-loss_b_1937312.Html- & see the "discuss that" link in the article. Exercise is also important!
