  • I havent heard of that before either. But would think that with the epsom salt the sodium content would be high. Have you asked a doctor about this? If not please do.

  • Epsom salts is a laxative. It's not going to make you lose weight, it'll just clean you out, which is only a very small amount of your body weight.

  • never heard of that...but my mom was put on a laxative to lose weight. she pooped out everything she ate and lost 100lbs but it wasnt that healthy and the doctor only will do it if you are like 100s of pounds over and cant walk much.. i drink a protein shake that makes my metabolism get high so i burn most my calories from running around doing odd things plus working out..

  • just eat healthy foods.

    why put something into your body to purge yourself of weight? its just going to come back when you eat your next meal.
