<blockquote><b>Quoting MommyOFoscar&arianna:</b>" What's the cardiac diet?"</blockquote>
It's short term weight loss. If u stick to it u can lose close to the 20lbs u want. It's like dry toast, plain coffee or tea, 1 cup of fruit, lean meat w oz control. It's what the hospitals use for cardiac patients who need to lose before surgery.
Look it up on google or yahoo. U do it for a week then I think u go off for a week or two and do it again, but you could do it for two weeks since its short term weight loss you're after right now.
Nope, not going to happen. Even people who have had gastric bypass rarely lose that quickly. My SO's step dad just had it recently and he lost 15lbs in 2wks on an all liquid diet, with a stomach the size of a grape, he was 300lbs+.
