April 25th, 2012. A viewer asks if using the technique a doctor does before a colonoscopy to rid the bowels of waste, help to jump start weight loss.
The answer to that is an emphatic no! Your colon is like a self cleaning oven and needs no outside help. And just by cleansing it, you could be putting yourself at risk for irregular bowel movements, perforated colon, trouble with digestion. You also remove the bacteria that keep your guts in check.
The only reason it appears you lose weight is you are (pardon my phrasing) dumping out 5-6 pounds of waste. It does nothing for weight lose. Of course you'll feel lighter and better, think of sitting on the toilet for a good long while. Same basic principle.
