Extreme thinning, as well as indications of binge eating and purging, are common symptoms of eating disorders. Individuals with bulimia, anorexia, or binge-eating disorder, on the other hand, may engage in various behaviors in order to rid their bodies of food and feel slimmer. Laxatives are a very frequent approach for teenagers and adults to try to get rid of calories or food.
Laxative abuse is a purging activity in which a person tries to flush undigested food from their bowels quickly in order to purge their body of undesired calories. After using laxatives, many people report feeling “emptier” or “lighter” which they wrongly associate with weight reduction.
Water, minerals, fiber, several vital electrolytes and vitamins, and waste are the only constituents of food that have not been processed by the time it gets to the large intestine. As a result, the “weight” that is shed is mostly water, and it is made up of many necessary nutrients that the body requires to function. Abuse of laxatives leads to electrolyte imbalances and dehydration, which can harm the heart and other body organs. With repeated use, the colon becomes reliant on laxatives, requiring significantly larger doses with time.
