Our expert says:
Drinking salt solutions works as a laxative so you tend to develop diarrhoea and that may make you lose some weight because of water loss. This is however, a harmful way of trying to lose weight which could damage all kinds of body systems like the kidneys, and the intestines and cause deficiency diseases. Please tell your friend not to continue and to rather lose weight by reducing her fat intake and doing regular exercise.
