In this construction, how does one differentiate between something with two purposes versus a purpose that is serving another one? Or does one just rely on context?

Because it could be a process for training that also will make him thin (but the training is it’s own purpose and lacks a direct causal link to the thinning), or it could be a process that trains him with the explicit purpose that the training makes him thin.
