Here's a diet that my good friend Shelley gave me years ago. Shelley's a model/actress in LA, and this diet does help shrink your stomach and help you lose about 2-5 lbs in 3 days! It claims to make you lose 10 lbs, but it's never had those kind of results for me. Needless to say, this is what I'll be eating for the next 3 days.
Drink all the Water and Diet Drinks you want
Day 1: 1/2 grapefruit, 1 slice toast, 2 tb peanut butter, coffee or tea
Lunch: 1/2 cup tuna, 1 slice toast, coffee or tea
Dinner: 2 slices meat (any kind to = 6 oz), 1 c green beans, 1/2 banana, 1 small apple, 1 c vanilla ice cream
Day 2: 1 egg, 1 slice toast, 1/2 banana
Lunch: 1 c cottage cheese or 1 slice cheddar cheese, 1 hard boiled egg, 5 saltine crackers
Dinner: 2 weiners (no buns), 1 c broccoli, 1/2 c carrots, 1/2 banana, 1/2 c vanilla ice cream
Day 3: 5 saltine crackers, 1 slice cheddar cheese, 1 small apple
Lunch: 1 hard boiled egg, slice toast
Dinner: 1 cup tuna, 1/2 banana, 1 c cauliflower, 1/2 c cantalope, orange or grapefruit, 1/2 c vanilla ice cream
Diet works on a chemical breakdown and is proven. Do not vary or substitute. Any of the above foods, salt or pepper may be used, but no other seasonings. This is to be used 3 days at a time off 4 days. Lose 10 lbs or up to 40 lbs in a month (safe diet). DO NOT EAT in between meals.
Also, check out this site for other 3 day diet/meals. I've done some of them, and they're great! It helps to add in some exercise, of course, as always.
Aaaaaand last but not least, a while back, I was chosen as a candidate to try out a fitness machine (I did it for no pay, but got free training classes for two weeks). This is the diet they asked us to follow:

most important meal of the day. Coffee is fine as long as you only use lowfat milk and no sweetener.
No diet products!!!!!
I know this is extreme but it is only for 13 days. As we move along in this process we will make changes if
Eat dinner as close to 4pm as possible and if you are STARVING in the evening have a half of an apple for
women and whole apple for men with lemon. It will keep you full for hours.
