How do laxative diets work?

1. When do you take the pills?
2. How many do you take a day?
3. How long is it till you have visible results of weight loss?
4. What are the risks?
5. If you stop taking them then does the weight come back on really fast?

Thank you.
And please, no mean answers.

Answer on How do laxative diets work?

Overall they don't. Your electrolytes become disordered and you may also become dehydrated, both may permanently damage your kidneys and renal function.

Safe, successful and sustained wight loss requires the combination of diet and exercise.
