Does Exlax help you lose weight?
No, but it will, if taken regularly or in large enough amounts, prevent your body from absorbing important nutrients. It could also induce dehydration, which could result in electrolyte imbalance, and, possibly, death. exlax is a laxitive that helps soften poo * : )* and makes you have to go cleaning out intestines. if you take it after eating your body doesn't have enough time to get the nuitrients leading to malnutrition. Yes, Exlax and other laxatives do help the poo move through you, but with all the dangers stated by the other answer when used too much or abused. To think otherwise is just ignorant. Actually taking laxitives after eating only prevents about 10% of calories from being absorbed. It reduces bloating and for a day makes your stomach flatter but taking laxitives and doing nothing else is not going to make you lose any real weight. When your have Anorexia and Bulimia your stomach bloats quite a bit which is why feeling their stomachs flatten makes them feel like they're losing.

Yes! Pilates will help you lose weight! Pilates exercises help to increase lean muscle mass, and the more lean muscle mass you have, the more calorie burning potential y…ou have all day--even when you sleep! Once you commit to a Pilates workout, you will begin to see the results of a more toned, leaner body, and in most cases (if you have the weight to lose) the pounds will come off too! I teach a Pilates class and one of my members who has been coming for about 2 or 3 months now told me the other day that she's dropped 34lbs since starting Pilates! Its a great workout that can be done by any fitness level because there are modifications for everything! Try it out!
having complex carbohydrates in your diet instead of simple carbohyrdates. Also not passing your caloric intake Okay, so you want to lose weight. The basic way to do that is l…imit Calorie intake and exercise. Having set goals for weight and time to achieve it is key for some people. Just having a plan helps. Weight loss is never a fast deal where you can "Lose a Pound A Day!". It's about the little choices, and the seemingly insignificant bites that add up. You just have to ask yourself, "Is not having this really worth that?" Tricky business.When I said exercise, I meant running because that's the fastest, most efficient way. Running speeds up your metabolism which is important in weight loss because it will burn calories even AFTER you stop exercising for the day! Great, right? Here's the trick, weight lifting, yoga, stretching, and most aerobics aren't enough to speed up your metabolism so running really is the best answer. Oh yeah, and remember to stretch and drink lots of water!When you are dieting and want to limit calorie intake, a great way to do that is carry around a small notebook with you EVERYWHERE! Every time you eat something (or are about to) think about the calories in it and if you do consume something, write it down. Just putting the numbers down on paper can really cut down on tricky foods you dont need. Ask yourself, "Am I REALLY hungry?". If you aren't savvy with the amounts of calories in foods, you can generally google "Calories in ______" and it will pop up from a calorie counter sight. (This hasn't failed me yet. Those sights have everything!)The tricky thing about dieting is DON'T skip breakfast! Your body has already gone 8 hours without. If you are prone to severe limits on food throughout your day, it makes your body believe there isn't any food coming so it fill convert anything that DOES come in to fat right away and store it. In addition, if you go a long time with out food it makes your metabolism slow way down (BAD!) and your body's cells function very inefficiently, which means clinging to calories as a survival technique. Be careful to avoid the Binge/Fast cycle, which causes weight fluctuation, no progress, and sometimes being heavier than you started. Did I mention drink water? MOST IMPORTANT FOR DIETING! WATER WATER WATER! Carry around a bottle you can refill with you.I have probably overloaded you with information but I'd like to say one last thing. Everyone wants to lose an extra 10 pounds so I understand, but it is important to ask yourself where you're going with the weight loss plans and if it's a safe thing. I have seen so many people develop disorders and you need to be careful. I hope that you'll have a successful and HEALTHY time with this.
The secret is allicin Garlic contains the compound allicin which has anti-bacterial effects and helps reduce unhealthy fats and LDL (bad) cholesterol. Keep in min…d, though, that there are conditions. First, this is only for raw garlic because allicin is destroyed when cooked. Second, allicin is not present in garlic in its natural state; you have to chop or smash it so that the enzyme alliinase acts on the chemical alliin converting it into allicin.
Yes it does, it actually nearly doubles your metabolism, making your body burn fat at a much faster pace. The catch is, however, is that the higher rate of metabolism gives yo…u MUNCHIES, giving you an irresistible sweet-tooth that is VERY hard to satisfy, the munchies can easily zero-out the weight loss. What I do is smoke a few bowls or a joint at night so that the high quickly puts me to sleep while maintaining the doubled rate of metabolism. By the time I wake up, my body is far from high and, as long as I don't "wake 'n bake", I can get up to a brand new day. After a couple weeks, or even days, of this practice, you will begin to notice the body you had back in the good ol' days :) If anything marijuana makes you gain weight. One of the side affects is it increases your appetite.
Weight lifting helps to burn fat stored in your body while simultaneously building muscle. The best way to lose weight though is a combination of weightlifing, exercise, and p…roper diet. It really depends on where you're starting from, and, how you do it. If you haven't done much exercise at all before starting to try to lose weight, then you won't have much muscles, and with only a little muscle it becomes harder to exercise effectively. A lot of the calorie use happens in the muscles, so with little muscle comes low/slow calorie use. Moderate weight lifting(light weights, plenty of repetitions) will help you lose weight. The exercise burns calories and increases your metabolism, and a bit of added muscle will let you put more effort into your exercises and burn more calories. If you're starting from a couch potato, some muscles strength is good protection against injuries. The fat can actually be replaced with muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat, so your loss of inches will actually be more dramatic than your loss of weight at first. Heavy weight lifting(heavy weights, few repetitions) doesn't help you lose weight. Weight lifting will build muscle mass, which will actually increase your body weight. Weightlifters eat a high protein diet (which helps repair muscle so they can train harder) and a low fat/low carb diet. .
well it is low in calories, has high amounts of fiber, and has many antioxidents so it can help you lose weight when paired with proper exercise and nutrition
They are low calorie and have a high water content, so they are a good food to eat for weight loss...just don't have much salt on them or you could retain all that water.
by smoking in general as well as eating normally dose not make you lose weight but smoking stops the appetite so you don't feel as hungry so you don't eat as much therefore ye…s you will lose weight.
You only lose water-weight. That means dehydration and rectal problems. You can, but you will feel terrible, and may cause damage to one orifice you don't want probed. Talk to… a doctor!
No, it has the opposite effect.
The purpose of Laxatives is not to lose weight. Using laxatives to lose weight is dangerous to say the least. At best, it promotes a dependency on them, making normal bowe…l movements difficult to impossible without them. The body is an adaptable thing, but if you are trying to use laxatives to lose weight, please seek professional psychiatric help. It is often the sign of a much more serious and potentially dangerous problem.
There is no evidence that fenugreek helps with weight loss.
No, they just reduce the acid production in your stomach.
I Hope so! I have taken it for pains and aches..but i feel like my cheeks and face are getting a little puffy. Is this happening to anyone else? I don't need to gain any more …weight!
Of course but it will also slow down weight loss and it is an unhealthy way to do it. I went from 210lb to 173lb with really just 1 number. You need to know your 0 w…eight loss or gain and make a small deficit from there. People try and eat at too large of a deficit(resticitive diet and to quickly so it if they lose any weight they gain it back). They essentially are trying to shed big while their body is trying to hold on. You need to sneak up on your body. My experience has been (went from 210lb to 173lb) that eating barely under my 0 weight loss or gain number works best. I have seen it work better for others as well. The ONLY and best site to get this number at is healthsidekick FYI all other sites are off when they tell you how much food you can eat and lose weight. This has been my experience.
