My question is, how fast? You can lose 2 pounds a week with a 1000 calorie deficit. Is this fast enough, or do you have something coming up right around the corner?
Have you looked in to something like Medifast? It sounds like their program can help get some pounds off quickly. I was thinking about looking in to it earlier this year.
Or, since it sounds like you have a crazy schedule, maybe you could find a healthy meal replacement type of diet to use on a short term basis. I drink **********, and my friend tells me this Isogenics is good and not as expensive. Maybe that's a direction you could go in to kick start your loss.
I lost a lot of weight using the hCG diet. This one isn't easy, but I lost 15 pounds a month, roughly, and a total of 50 pounds last year before I started my current plan (after gaining some back) . You said you want to lose weight fast, for a reason. If you have 21 days, then maybe you could do that one. If you were interested, there are physician based clinics all over the place now, so you could do it under the care of an MD.
I don't know if any good diets. Of course the healthiest way is the slow and go with diet and exercise, but those aren't fast. I've heard of the cabbage soup diet, the banana rice diet, and many crash diets that will take weight off fast, but these aren't permanent solutions..... fast solutions however. I haven't tried any of them, so I can't really suggest anything.

I weigh myself every day. It keeps me accountable.
