A strict low carb should help in that time frame.

Or do what my friend did and eat lettuce for every meal don't.

Cut out all beige food (bread, spuds, pasta, rice, cake).

Cardio as many days a week as possible.

1200 calories a day (download MFP to keep you right).

Minimum 2 litres water a day.

No alcohol.

I've lost up a a stone in 3 weeks (for weddings/holidays) doing the above.

Well crash dieting is bad for you, a short term fix and you'll put all the weight back on... But if you're aware of that and the associated risks,

Cut out salt, all sugars, bread, pasta and rice, not much dairy either.

Eat small portions of lean protein and plenty of green veg. Use chilli, lemon juice, fresh herbs or garlic for flavour. Eggs are your friend. Plenty of eggs.

No snacks

Masses of water

No fruit

Exercise a lot- HIIT and weights. Try for 2 sessions a day

Good underwear- ie Spanx!

Pretty much agree with all the above. Cut the carbs and do a 20 min hiit workout everyday (youtube the shred).
You'd lose pounds and inches but it'll go back on once you go back to eating how you were.

Thank you all smile

Right tomorrow I'm going to give it my best shot. The dress fits, just would be more comfy with a few pound off.

I lost weight the week before my wedding. Stress, busyness and nerves. Just say no to the last supper the night before, for a flatter tummy.

I've always been fond of this old thread:

I've had a lot of luck with Beachbody workouts when I needed to shed a few pounds quickly or needed a good jumpstart to a diet. You can check out a ton of their videos before you buy if you use the 30 day free trial for their online video service:
