Risks Of Laxatives For Weight Loss

Losing weight can be difficult for just about anyone. In order to lose weight, one must actually work for it. Losing weight can be achieved through proper dieting and exercise. You are going to want to lose weight the proper way. A lot of people try to take shortcuts only to realize that there is none. Below we will discuss some of the risks of using laxatives for weight loss.

1. Stomach Cramps.

Because laxatives are powerful, you can experience tons of stomach cramps and pain in your abdomen area. You are going to want to ensure that you do not overuse laxatives for weight loss or you can experience tons of issues with stomach cramps.

2. Dehydration.

Laxative use causes loss of essential electrolytes and water retention such as potassium, calcium, and sodium. You are going to want to ensure that you do not experience any of these symptoms when using laxatives. Otherwise, you may find yourself in a dreadful situation. Dehydration is very real, and you do not want to experience dehydration for short term weight loss. Any benefits for effects from taking laxatives will be short lived and can lead to long term damage and problems with your body.

3. Digestion Problems.

Long term usage of laxatives can lead to a lot of long term problems with your digestive system, which can turn out to be permanent. Long term usage of these laxatives can lead to tons of damage to the gastrointestinal tract. This means that your body may lose its ability remove food from the body. Obviously, this is not a good thing for your body, and you do not want to put your body through this.

4. Diarrhea.

You are going to experience tons of Diarrhea if you use laxatives for weight loss. The problem is that this type of Diarrhea can quickly lead to dehydration. In the end, you end up severely dehydrated, and your body loses its ability to function properly. This obviously is not conducive for weight loss and will end up in a slower metabolism. This is counter productive to losing weight and should always be avoided. In order to lose weight, you must drink enough water to avoid this symptom.

Abuse of laxatives by young people is usually a sign of an eating disorder. Many people experience eating disorders every year, and it has become a huge problem. A lot of people try to use laxatives as a way to lose weight quick. The problem is the damage that the extensive usage of laxatives causes. Laxatives are not a solution for weight loss. Weight loss should always be done safe and so that it can be maintained long term. Laxatives for weight loss are not effective, nor is it safe. You should never utilize laxatives for weight loss.

The bottom line is that laxatives should not be used for weight loss. They are not effective and are dangerous. If you suspect anyone abusing laxatives for losing weight, tell someone immediately.

    What Is Are Some Of Your Favorite Weight Loss Tips? What are some of your most succesfull weight loss tips?? I have my few that I live by, but I am looking for some tips on cutting down. Please only share different/ unique tips.

    thank you so much in advance!

      Hi CollegeGirl

      In my opinion, no weight loss tips are truly successful on their own. Lots of water is not necessarily a good way, because how much water a person needs depends on the BMI of the person. 6 small meals maybe hard at times, especially when you are stuck at school or office and have no chance to eat, and then you need to eat more when you have the chance. Well, dieting is a good way to lose weight, but then it is hard to stick to a diet. For example, something like this:

      Breakfast:
      2 egg, low fat Cheddar cheese omelette – 320 calories
      2 slices wholemeal toast with thin smear butter – 200 calories
      Large slice melon – 47 calories

      Lunch:
      Spicy Turkey Salad recipe – 304 calories

      Snack:
      Muesli or honey nut Health Bar “Sainsbury” – 180 calories

      Dinner:
      Baked potato with 100g “Heinz” baked beans &/or Cottage cheese if desired – 300 – 400 calories (350 average)
      Large helping salad fruits &/or vegetables – 100 calories

      Another weight loss tip is to do interval and turbulence exercise.

      Turbulence Training is a fresh plan that requires finishing three 45-minute exercise sessions each week with marginal equipment. It is an increasingly trend-setting fitness plan with the intention of helping you in the reduction of weight.

      Interval training is the fitness world’s equivalent of a visit to the in-laws. The shorter and more intense the visit, the better. An interval is a short period of exercise performed at a given intensity for a specific length of time. Each interval is separated from the next interval by a short rest or lighter activity. There are no strict rules on how long or how intense the interval must be, however, changing the interval length or intensity changes the way your body works and responds to exercise.

      But people have a short willpower. It may be strong at the beginning but will eventually fade as time goes on- as they realize that going on a diet is not actually as easy as they think it is. Of course, the strength of willpower differs from one person to another. This is the reason why there are people who can actually maintain a diet and exercise program for 1 year and there are people who can only maintain it for few months. Nonetheless, willpower is a big factor that dictates someone whether to continue losing weight or not.

      And in my opinion, besides sticking to a diet and exercise plan, it is the ultimate willpower to stop yourself from overeating that is the #1 tip to lose weight. But that is the hardest part if you are accustomed to eating lots of food even though your body does not need it. It is partly because of the delicious taste of the food causing a craving for more. There are certain ways to fight this craving ad I found one that maybe helpful. It is a type of chocolate that can actually suppress your appetite. It will can provide Good Energy that promotes a healthy weight by providing energy while burning fat. And it helps suppress cravings for sugary snacks.

      Good luck!

      PS: Information on the Special Chocolate that I mentioned can be found on the website in the source box. Recently, they are giving away a one month free trial.

      First off, have a great time at the prom! Secondly, you want to get to that lower weight doing it healthy. 1200 is a reasonable amount of calories, but I’m pretty sure those calories are not coming from all the nutrients your body needs. You don’t want your weight loss coming to a crashing halt! I know all about the crazy diets out there. You don’t have to spend ANY money on a quick fix or gimmick that may not work or work only for a few weeks. I have been on a natural eating plan and I lost 50 pounds in about 5 months. You’re younger, it may be faster. I also incorporated lots of exercise to burn more fat. This way of eating is called Paleo, or the Cave Diet. Eat everything your ancestors ate! If mother nature made it, eat it, if man made it, don’t touch it! It’s as simple as that. Go to the Cave Diet link below. You will lose weight, feel happier, glow from the inside out. Good luck!

      The best advice I could ever give you is losing weight takes time. If you’ve tried and failed many times (which is what I am going through), you have to start slowly. Maybe start cutting out bad things in your diet little by little. You can’t expect to go from eating sugary processed foods and not exercising much to extreme healthy eating and exercising 7 days a week in one day, or even one week. You have to learn to control yourself and that means start small and keep everything under control. Another VERY important thing to remember is to NEVER EVER EVER give up! No matter if you go a whole week eating junk foods and not exercising, that does not mean you have to give up and never reach your goals. Just think, well, next week I’ll do better and get back on track. You have to believe you can do it. You have to want it for yourself and no one else.

      Exercise at least 5 times per week. I suggest strength training and cardio. Let’s say Monday you walk/run for 30 minutes, then Tuesday you would do push ups and sit ups and planks, and squats and then take a break Wednesday and start back up on Thursday.

      As far as your eating you really need to watch what you eat! That is the most important step. Portion control is important. If you normally get a big dinner, then cut the amount of food you get in half and that will help a lot. Another way is to get your plate and only eat 3/4 of the food you have on your plate.

      Eating healthy, lean meats, whole grain breads, and staying away from sugary things and high calorie foods. Always remember that cutting out something bad with something healthy really makes a difference. Drinking sodas and eating candy bars is empty calories. If you replace those things with a whole grain waffle or one small piece of dark chocolate it will really help.
