1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
But why would you want to? Is this for a diet? Some cleansing ritual? Religious purposes? There is little reason to engage in these activities for weight loss reasons, because they are not sustainable, can lead to malnutrition and electrolyte problems, and cause rebound weight gain after one goes back to a regular diet.
