Hi Prabashni

I can feel your desperation.

Unfortunately I'm not a fan of crash diets. You've got a few weeks, and if you consistently reduce your calorie intake, you should be able to lose some weight before your trip.

I'd suggest drinking 2 meal replacement shakes and eating one sensible meal per day. You could even buy frozen Weight Watchers meals to take all the guesswork out of portioning and nutritionally balancing your meals. I think you'll find you're not as hungry eating this way as you might be on a crash diet, yet you should still see results.

Hope that helps!
