I am suffering from the "weight loss syndrome". I have tried everything in the books to lose weight but I have not been able to stick to anything to know if they actually work. I always seem to overeat as I am a foody person so my friend suggested using laxatives. Now I am becoming addicted, even though I am not to use laxatives more than 2 consecutive weeks at a time. I think that after eating so much food, the laxative will eliminate most of those fatty stuff and slows my weight gain.
