    I am going on holiday in 21 days and looking to lose a stone before I go. Does anybody have any experience of crash dieting and what would be most effective?

    That would require you to lose 0.6 lbs a day, or in other words be at a calorie deficit of 2333 a day. Basically this means, say for example your TDEE is 2000 calories a day (to work out your actual TDEE click link below) not only would you have to eat nothing all day every day, but you'd also have to burn an extra 333 calories a day on top....basically it's not going to happen. Crash diet are idiotic and if you wanted to lose a specific weight you shouldn't have left it til 21 days before you go on holiday.

    Just go on holiday. Enjoy yourself and lose weight properly when you come back.
