Lose=yes healthy=no: Your colon may hold a few pounds of waste (stool) normally, although severely constipated people may hold more.

Not recommended: We don't recommend quickly losing large amounts of weight as that's usually water weight that's lost, leading to dehydration. "Colon cleansers" are often unmonitored laxatives which we don't recommend using regularly, or even occasionally. Check w/your doc to make sure you're otherwise healthy, including no hypothyroidism. Then increase fiber, fluids & exercise to more naturally get bowel going. ...Read more

Not recommended: Colonics have become popular as a form of cleanse or detox. They are not a way to lose weight except in the very short term by losing water.
