Now, I dont want to do this and have any desire to try it, I'm just asking... There are anorexic (sp?) people out there that are addicted to laxitives (they make you shit) because they think they are fat and they lose weight with them. My question is, is this true? Does it make your body not absorb the food as well or something? If it is true, what are the reaons why people do/don't do laxitive cutting?
