It’s not possible to lose 20 pounds in 3 weeks like that rebccajane sorry, even if you cut your calories from 1200 to 800 your still not going to see the results you are looking for. This is only 400 more calories a day or 2800 calories a week or less than a pound. You most also know that as you go down in calories a day your body will slow down as a survival mechanism not only will this make it a little harder to lose weight but you’re going to have some series side effects after a week or two.
If you have a 800 to 1000 caloric deficit every day you will be losing only 1 ½ to 2 pound every week and that is very good. The only way to lose 20 pounds in 3 weeks is by creating a 23,333 caloric deficit every week.
The sad true about weight loss is that it’s a very slow process with no shortcuts.
Good look

That is exactly what my sister and I are already doing, I've been doing it for a little over a week, and have lost 6 pounds, my sister has been doing it for a month and has lost 18 pounds. It really does work.

It depends who "a woman" is. A 300 pound woman might well lose 20 pounds in her month of dieting by doing something like this-- the first pound to come off are usually a lot of water weight. A 150 pound woman isn't going to be able to drop 20 pounds this way.

If either of those women has been dieting for a while, they won't lose 20 pounds in a month. Starvation diets definitely aren't good for you, though.

And here is an example of borderline reckless behavior.

Could this work? Well, that depends on is your goal a number or a way of life? He explicitly states this is a 3 week program to jump start results. Atkins and South Beath seem similar in the focus on explicitly short term, drastically reduced/ restricted eating to jump start progress before transitioning into a less restrictive, life maintenance WOE.

I get his explanation of carbs, but I thought it was backwards from what I had heard previously. I thought simple carbs were the more processed grains and higher starch veggies and complex ones were what he called the freebies- higher water and fiber content stuff like greens. In any case, I get it. Low carb, low fat, low cal for 3 weeks to lose a lot of weight. Technically it may "work"- I cannot confirm or deny that- but it seems poorly motivated and reckless to me. The mentality seems like do whatever it takes to look successful. Sprint to the check point then switch to this other plan. That doesn't seem healthy IMO. Sad

I agree with berley1, think outside the box. I will eat tonights leftovers, ribs and broccoli for breaky next day... Agree with having a look at induction food list and eat whatever you want from that ...
