No answers yet?

Well, I can only recommend you to visit a specialist, but I suppose that´s what readers thought but didn´t mention.

Isn´t your health important? Therefore, why dropping weight down so quickly
when you can do it easily and keep it that way?

Take care and think about it.

Get with your doctor first and during the weight loss so that they can monitor your health.
I am going to assume that you are a man and in good -> excellent health. If you are a woman, do not do this as it may cause problems.
For your meals, Replace two of them with a whole grain cereal or bran.
For the other meal, keep it small only enough to cut the hunger pangs.
Increase your water intake. I drank 3-5 gallons of water a day. the first 3 days was heck then my body adjusted.
Ensure that you are still getting the minimum vitamins and minerals by taking One-A-Day or other vitamin / minerals supplement.
Workout your cardiovascular system keeping you heartrate at about 120-130 beats per minute for at least 20 minutes at a time. If you are up to it, you can do this 3-4 times a day.
Hit the steam rooms and saunas to sweat out the excess water that you are drinking.
Be very careful and as I said above, get with the doctor first and keep him in the loop throughout the regiment. You will loose the 20 pounds very quickly and you will also find that you will be healthier since you will have flushed most of the toxins out of your system. Good luck and let us know how you progess

20 Lbs. in 2.5 weeks is just too high of a goal to set.
I lost 50 Lbs. last year but I did it over a period of 8 months by altering my diet and changing my lifestyle in small increments. Now I just maintain my body so that I don't put the fat back on.

To do what your asking you would have to starve and dehydrate yourself while maintaining a very high activity level, and that's just not good for your health.

Eat a proper diet, get active, and lose the weight gradually. Then maintain it so that you don't find yourself in a position of wanting to lose weight suddenly in the future.

truttseeker, that not healthy, but if you must.....

eat nothing but fruits and veggies and hydrate.

Run, run some more and then run more than that.

If you don't mind me asking, why do you need to lose 20 lbs?

You can't lose it heathily that quick.

However, if you replace all drinks with water (no sugar drinks, unsweetened tea is ok), you'll lose weight pretty quickly, along with a lot of exercise.

If you are really desperate, stay with unsweetened drinks, but also go for a liquid diet by drinking a lot of protein shakes and milk as well. I know someone who lost 30 pounds during Lent on a liquid diet.

Sorry to say this but 20 pounds in 2.5 is a pretty unrealistic goal to set.

Anyway, my advice is to drink an absolute poo-load of water. I'm talking about 10 or more pints a day. Don't drink anything else other than water. The occassional tea or coffee is okay.

Good luck with it, but don't try to lose too much in such a short time.

I recently read a study that suggested people who are sleep deprived are more likely to be overweight. Get plenty of rest, exercise everyday and eat well of course and that should really help.

Search for "lose a stone in a week diet "

The only other way is to water fast

But make sure you are drinking loads of water, it will fill your stomach and make you less hungry and it will help your body process waste products

You can lose a lot of weight in that short of time if you follow those "rules" :

1) No sugar
2) No snacking (only eat breakfast lunch & dinner)NO form of calorie in between ONLY WATER
3) Eat protein and do not be a vegetarian
4) exercise right before your breakfast lunch or your dinner so you have empty stomach during exercise
5) Eat the majority of your carbs in the meal following your workout
6) Do not snack after 7pm
7) Sleep enough
8) Drink lots of water between meals NOT with meals (dilutes enzymes)
9) CHEW your food really well
10) Take a good quality multi vitamin and magnesium so you don't crave sugar carbs & chocolate ( i recommend remag)

Stay consistent with the above for a month and you will notice your stomach capacity lessen and you will feel happier good luck!
