Dr. Oz introduced a woman who used laxatives in order to lose weight. She did not just use them to lose a few pounds, she used them to lose nearly 200 pounds because she went from weighing 260 pounds to weighing just 78 pounds. Shana explained to Dr. Oz that she used them very little at first, but then realized that using more laxatives could help her lose a greater amount of weight, so she kept on taking them and at one point she went from weighing 130 pounds to weighing just 80 pounds. She said that she has tried to cut back on the amount she was taking, which is currently around 30-40 pills per day, but it always left her bloated and in a lot of pain. Dr. Oz explained that this is because laxatives can do a great deal of damage to a person’s intestines.
