Fiber and long-term effects

Question - could fiber supplements be used as an alternative to straight-up laxative use for weight loss (yes, it is supposed to be linked to an eating disorder)? I have heard that this is true, but a search on WebMD and on google has not said much. Also, does anyone know the long-term effects of using fiber supplements for weight loss? Not the effects of the eating disorder, but just if the fiber supplements themselves can cause 'bad things?'
