Question: I'm aware that they can damage your kidney. Also, I was wondering if using them twice in the course of a month will do some permanent damage. I'm trying to loose 20 pounds and eat healthy along with 2 hours of exercise each day.

Hi Dawn, Your body will eventually adapt to this process and the result is protection from self destruction. Laxatives are considered a chemical which the body cannot use for fuel, hence the bowl movement. Regarding your weight reduction plan. 2 hours of exercise everyday is excessive & this could set you up for over training. If you are injured, you are going backwards [ recovery, rehabilitation, etc. ]. Reduce your duration [ time frame ] to 1 hour. Every 3rd or 4th day might be alright to complete 2 hours of training. Good luck in your future endeavors. Be safe and Have Fun!!!!

Because they don't make you lose weight except for the fecal matter in your colon and that will be replaced in a day or two, it's not much weight anyway, and it's not going to improve your appearance. What that leads to is more laxatives to lose that same weight over again and again. Laxative abuse leads to a "lazy" colon which will not process chyme properly and you can end up with a host of maladies such as IBS, spastic colitis, chronic diarrhea, and other painful and serious conditions of the colon. If you've considered it, you should consider talking to your parents or school nurse or doctor about your problem. If you have EDNOS, you will need help because you won't be able to trust your own mind...your own judgement. Seek help if you're underweight. Your health depends on it. Good luck and good health!! ♠

read the side effects insert and it's not worth the risk. Just eat healthy & exercise...lots of veggies. Have you read the book "wheat belly"? you may find it at your library not sure though. You can also find "wheat belly" FB group that they share their success stories, recipes and ask questions. You can find info on it on u tube too...I've read many people have had big time weight loss success and also many have improved from their health ailments.
