Is it possible to lose "massive" amounts of weight by overdosing on weight loss pills?

Is it possible to lose "massive" amounts of weight by overdosing on weight loss pills? Topic: Is it possible to lose "massive" amounts of weight by overdosing on weight loss pills?

Question: A friend of mine that i care about deeply is abusing various pills. I know for a fact that she is taking up to 14 pills on an almost-daily basis. The pills are various weight loss pills, some of them fairly expensive, and up to 5 laxatives. She is still eating in a some-what normal to binging way yet she has lost so much weigh that her pelvic bones are sticking out very far and her stomach is so "flat" that its nearly going inward when she tries to stick it out. I've been searching all over the internet and everything I've read has said that not following the directions that come with the pills will either cause them to just not work or to back-fire. I understand that you may want to post your concern about how I should get her help and believe me I am working on it. But just out of curiosity, does anyone know if it is at all possible for her to be losing so much weight from the pills? Or would it just have to be something else? Sorry for the long question and thank you in advance.

Hi Andrea, your friend needs help, I would think with what you are already describing she could well have lever and kidney damage. It sounds like she is most likely extremely dehydrated from the laxatives which will also be causing damage. Most pills have little effect and I would suggest the damaging weight loss you are seeing is via water loss and non absorbtion of nutrients. Basically she is almost starving and will be destroying her metabolism. Your body needs food even if you just lay around all day and water to stay hydrated, both are being flushed from her system she may be losing up to 1/2lb or more per day of water, muscle, fat and material stripped from her organs and bones as the body eats itself.

Being 6'1" and weighing 155 lb. is not "damn skinny" sorry! I'm 6'2" and weigh 135 lb. and i could still lose 5-10lb. if I wanted to. I don't think you need to gain weight, I think you have body image issues where you don't think you weigh enough.

use a dash of cinnamon to give fruits such as bananas and melons a richer dessert feel without the sugar

you may be used to fried foods but there are other sometimes healthier ways to cook including roasting steaming poaching baking braising and broiling

To gain weight you need to combine protein foods with starchy carbohydrates as indicated below. Good weight gaining combinations are bread, cereals, pasta, rice, corn, potatoes or sweet potatoes combined with meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, nuts or sea food. Peanut butter sandwiches and cheese sandwiches are both good weight gaining combinations. The protein in the above combinations will help to gain extra muscles.
