    Loose-leaf green tea. Try that. You will feel ashamed and appalled when you look in the toilet the next day. Yes, in theory you really could take the 12inch black strap on 8O :oops:

    Read something years ago, journalist went on this holiday detox in thailand or somewhere, fasted for a week and everyone got a funnel and bit of tubing and a colander and sent to cubicles to self irrigate everyday.

    I remember reading that too. In FHM while I was at uni, I think. It were reet grim.

    I visited Burkina Faso for a month and piocked up a bug.

    At one point I seemed to be drinking water at roughly the same rate I was losing 'fluid' at the other end.

    I certainly felt light headed and 'cleaned out' after a few days of that.

    I've heard thatt making tea out of bracken is a very good emetic.

    Nah pretty sure it was one of my dads papers/supplements so either guardian or observer. What i read didn't sound grim, like i said sounded interesting and a bit different but when it comes down to it, conventional/bike holiday vs starving and colonics the starving aint gonna get a look in.

    There was a celebrity colonic irrigation programme on a few years ago. I think they went abroad and tried a whole host of methods of cleansing their bodies.

    The stuff that came out of them was unbelievable

    Honestly – loose leaf green tea. Put a fair bit into a cup. Then post back on here. You will be appalled (not watery- the opposite).

    From what i've read in those articles, the blockages tend to be from lumps of undigestable meat. I've often wondered what they find from the output of those who (like me) have been long term veggie or vegan, with a diet that tends to have a higher fibre content & no gristle.

    I'd be fascinated to see these horrendous lumps of undigestable meats coming from an animal that is designed to eat meat. It really is just an excuse to have a pipe up your bum and make you feel better about yourself. Nutrients to make up for stuff lost during the procedure – are you in there for days?! I feel fairly sure you can't leech out a significant quantity of nutriets in 1hr, and maybe the tablets are just another method of bending you over for more cash. Of course they can tell what you've been eating, they're looking at the remnants, but do you really need someone to tell you that based on your poo? That's like looking at the smoke from someones dying engine and telling them they should have changed the oil more often.

    I remember that article too – after a week of doing this in Thailand the guy produced a marble that he swallowed when he was about 9.

    What you want is one of those Japanese toilets they should sort you out. Gave me a shock the first time I sat on one and started to play with the buttons.

    The Thai resort you're talking about was on TV too. Think Celeb Big Brother but with tubes in their arses. They sent zzzzzz-listers (Richard Blackwood, Keith Duffy, Kim Wilde and Tamara Beckwith if this link is right) to "compete" for who could get most crap out of themselves.

    This might be the article from the Times you're looking for:

    As somebody who has never had any sort of constipation and has a frequent, regular 'toilet schedule', I struggle to see the benefit of hosing-out by lower intestine. I find it hard to believe that substantial volumes of solid waste are stored for long periods in the gut.

    It all seems a bit Gillian McKeith to me.

    As such, it is filed in the placebo/bullsh*t section in my mind.

    Right this loose leaf green tea thing…what do 'we' do and how long does it take to work? I'm tempted in a sort of amatuer medical/biology experimnet kind of way…so let me know so I can prepare the runway in case I get caught short!

    Re the waterskiing, ladies are advised not to wear bikinis when waterskiing due to the cheese cutter effect.

    I wakeboard. No colonic irrigation involved.

    I think all this internal cleaning is a load of rubbish.

    I can think of several episodes suffering from the severe squits (courtesy of poor Asian food hygiene) where there is no chance of ANYTHING being left behind, other than a considerably lighter David_r. In fact I think in some cases I've lost an internal organ and my spine was left protruding.

    I drink looseleaf green tea most days. There's half a mug full next to me right now. I've never noticed it having any influence on my poo at all.
