Pills or liquid, herbal or otherwise, laxative abuse is a common form of "weight control" in people suffering with Eating Disorders. The use of laxatives as a way to lose or control weight is not only dangerous, but irrational. The actual purpose of taking a laxative is to stimulate the large bowel to empty, which occurs only after the food and it's calories for energy have been absorbed through the small intestines. Essentially, a person taking laxatives to control weight is only going to cause their body to lose fluid, which can potentionally be followed by periods of water retention and an appearance of bloating (causing the sufferer to want to lose more weight and ingest more laxatives). The reason people suffering from eating disorders seem to lose weight while taking laxatives is because in most cases they are increasingly watching calorie intake and restricting food consumption, inducing vomiting, and/or compulsively exercising. Continued laxative use can cause bloating, cramping, dehydration, electrolyte disturbances and imbalances, cardiac arrhythmias, irregular heart beat and heart attack, renal problems, and death. Phenolphthalein, a popular ingredient previously found in many brands of laxatives has now been recalled by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, United States) due to studies indicating that it has been linked to cancer. Withdrawal symptoms can be expected in stopping the use of laxatives after a continued period of using them as a "weight loss" method. These include, abdominal cramping, mild to severe constipation, bloating, mood swings and general feelings of fatigue and "feeling sick." In less severe cases the symptoms will usually subside in about 2 weeks, but in cases where a person have ingested handfuls or more laxatives on a regular basis, it may take longer and require medical assistance.

All of those things can't be healthy. You should just try getting outside and running or some other type of excercise

PLEASE, don't go the laxative route! First of all, you won't loose any weight, you'll lose a few water lbs, but gain them back before the reunion. I'm no expert on dieting, but I've struggled with weight my whole life and i've found there's only one safe way to lose 10 or more lbs in a week (years of trying different diets, fasting and excersing makes me a SELF proclaimed expert :) I had to go to a wedding and had to lose 15 or more to fit in my dress and only had a week. Lost it easy. It's a really hard diet to stick to (even for only a week), but it will work. PLEASE - THIS IS GIVEN ONLY WITH THE ASSUMPTION THAT YOU ARE AN ADULT, IN GOOD HEALTH AND UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATIONS OF ANY DIET WHICH DEPRIVES THE BODY OF ANY TYPE OF NUTRITION! It would be irresponsible for me to suggest this without saying that, however, I've asked several doctors, and they both said that they see no reason in the world why this should be unhealthful, and suggest "If it works for you, go ahead!". In Northern California there is a diet that the mental health hospital uses to de-toxify some patients and the combination of these foods take more calories to burn that it gives the body. So you'll lose more weight than fasting. I'm not kidding either. Along with each day (below), make ahead of time a batch of this disgusting soup: (1 whole onion, 1 whole cabbage, 6 medium tomatoes, 1 package of lipton onion soup mix. Boil until veggies are soft. The more you eat of the above soup, the more weight you'll lose, and the better you'll feel at the end. I have a sheet which lists each day, discusses the soup in detail, the nutrition, etc.....and exactly WHY it works, etc...., but don't have the room here to write it...so if you like, just trust this: First day: East as much watermelon as you can stuff into your mouth. The more you eat, the more you lose. This first day, mostly gets rid of water. Eat the soup! Second day: Your body is already super hungry after yesterday, but you will probably be 3lbs lighter by tomorrow morning - so keep it up! The rest of the diet will work by the end, so don't get discouraged if you're on day 5 and only lost 4 or 5 lbs. It does catch up! Eat as much green leafy vegetables as possible. Again, as much as you can stuff. Eat the soup at every hunger pain. Third Day: Eat a combination of the above two days. You must STUFF though...as much as you can (without making yourself sick of course) - SOUP, SOUP, SOUP!!! Fourth Day: Weird, I know, but eat 6 oz. of lean beef and all the green veggies that you want (not stuff yourself), but until your quite full (but only 6 oz of the beef - any kind). Don't forget your soup - stuff, stuff, stuff. Fifth Day: If your still on the diet, you've gone farther than most people will. This diet makes you super hungry, because your body thinks it's not only NOT eating, but even worse....since the foods eaten burn faster than they do when even fasting, it feels even more starved. (this will not hurt you if done once in a while, in fact, I was told by two Doctors, that it's good for you). Eat 6 more oz of beef and 6 small tomatoes. And of course, as much of the soup as you can manage. 6th day: 4 large bananas and 16 oz of milk - and stuff the soup down! 7th day: Congrats! You should be at minimum of 10lbs lighter now. And you have enough energy to run a marathon, don't you? Hard, wasn't it? Ease back into eating and you won't gain much back, maybe a lb or two, if you watch it. Eat heartily of all the green veggies you want and have 1 cup of brown rice. Ease back on the soup (you're probably sick of it anywayz) Good luck to you!
