Would using laxative to aid weight loss be a bad thing?

Question: I am so unhappy, I weigh 17 stone 3lbs, that's 241 pounds. I had twins a month ago and I am actually now lighter than I was when I got pregnant but I am so unhappy. I eat healthily and I exercise (yoga and aerobics in the morning, long walk in the evening and housework during the day) would using a laxative to help me poo lots and lose more weight be a bad thing? I have lost 6 and a half pounds this week but I know the loss wont keep up. I am 5 foot 11 if that makes a difference. I am not selfish, I have a 2 year old, I didn't smoke while I was pregnant with him and now I have twins I don't smoke and I am constantly rushed off my feet looking after them, almost by myself because my husband works so much so why shouldn't I want to feel good about myself for once and be able to fit into nice clothes? Thankyou M. You have really put things into perspective for me. What an idiotic thought. I will just see how my doctor to help and I will stay away from the Lactulose unless I get constipated.

all weight loss pills have negative side effects one way or another.. NOT a good idea, and its just a fast and unsafe way to lose weight....DEDICATION AND MOTIVATION! You can do it without a pill hun...

yeah, you'd basically be bulimic if you did that. Bulimia is awful, your teeth can get all nasty and your skin looks really gross...most people don't even lose weight, they just get terrible liver and heart problems. It takes like, at least 6 weeks of a weight-loss routine to have any REAL results (aside from water weight, blah blah). You can try going ova-lacto vegetarian (where you can eat eggs an dairy, for protein and iron), but if you really are eating healthy there's no need. If you've been exercising at least 30 min a day and eating healthy for months and have seen no results, you might have a thyroid problem, that's what happened to my mom after she had my little sister. Go to the doctor and they give you a pill to take every day and then your weight loss routine should start working.

You loose weight, but the effects are more psychological than physical. Most people eat out of boredom, there seams to be something exciting (in a narcissistic kind of way) about enemas that fill the void (Get it - Void). Also, people eat out of a sense of hopelessness and futility, giving yourself an enema is making you feels like your doing something about it. The actual physical effects are small. This is no small thing; weight loss is 90% psychological (in my small opinion). Just be absolutely sure it is done safely, moderately, and you’re meeting other goals like exercise, diet, and socializing in a healthy manner.

That would be very bad, try not eating any carbs after 2pm and you will find it will help but you need to have at 6 small meals a day to lose weight, breakfast, snack, lunch,snack dinner ,snack and try to eat your main meal at lunchtime so you are not going to bed on a full stomach. Other wise you seem to be doing the right thing

You are a momma...embrace that. And to lose anything that is beyond that, try a healthy diet and natural herbal products. you have small children (not sure if you are nursing but if you are...) you DO NOT want to put things into the children's bodies that aren't good for them and you don't want to take things away from yours that they need. that said...i have been dealing with mommy belly and 40 lbs of extra weight since my kids were born. I have found only one meal plan that worked (lost 6 lbs in one week and never ate so much and such good food) and used only one line of NATURAL products that worked.

Janel Originally Answered: Laxative in weight loss?
Laxative will only help you lose water weight, which you'll gain back anyways. If you start drinking lots of water (at least 64 oz a day), your body will hold less water, and you'll be less bloated and lighter from that. Drinking green tea will help boost your metabolism, somewhere between 3-8 cups of it a day. Just remember that it's a diuretic, so you'll need to drink even more water to replace what it flushes out.
