When I did the Dr Jenson bowel cleansing program I got rid of 11 pounds of old ropes and stuff!!! I was skinny when I did the program and even had a flat tummy, but it was flatter after the cleanse(also I was only 17 or 18 can't remember which). Have you done anything like that cleanse? The daughter of the woman who was helping us do the cleanse pooed out a ball of worms the size of a softball and got rid of her pot belly forever!!!
