Question: I am fully aware of all the side effects which come with using laxatives to lose weight, and I understand that it's mainly water weight which comes off. I am just curious as to why YOU use laxatives to control your weight? If you have actually seen results. I am only curious. Mainly because I've heard a lot of bad things about it, yet a lot of women still use them. Thanks in advance.

Its not water weight. My friends mom used to keep her weight down like this. It makes you poop out all the food you just ate. I remember she would spend lots of time in the bathroom all the time. So I would highly recommend you do not use this as a way to lose weight! Hope this helps

The hormones contained in birth control pills are usually absorbed within 2 hours of ingestion. Taking a laxative or bowel evacuant after that will have no effect on the effectiveness of the birth control pill.

omg laxatives are horrible. they make you cramp like no body business. for me personally i have taken laxatives a few times in my life do to horrible constipation---could not go for over a week. It was not fun--confined to a toliet what a life. I would think any weight loss is temporary. Try a low cal diet. I started to eat about 1600 cals a day and have lost 6lbs in 3 weeks about 2lbs a week. Its easy to do once you find healthy foods--I would not use this to loose weight not only does it hurt its gross..blah.. besides your food needs to properly digest in order to get all the nutrients out of it..

take a 30 second break in the middle of your meal evaluate just how hungry you still are before getting back to your food

She won't lose weight from eating it just a few times. It usually takes weeks-months on a weight control diet to see weight loss. She should be fine :)
