    I'm curious what ASAP means too. About the best you could hope for if you want to lose 10 lbs of fat is to be very strict in what you eat for 5-6 weeks. I like the recommendations of 1 lb of lean meat a day plus unlimited veggies but I'd consider more meat if you are a muscular person. Muscle takes a long time to build so don't let your body eat it! The scariest thing about rapid weight loss for me would be losing any of this muscle I worked so hard to build.
    10lb's in 6 weeks would be rad. The only other time I ever lost weight was when I cleaned my diet up about 8 years ago and slowly lost about 10-15lbs over the course of a year of so. Or after I delivered my two kids and stopped breastfeeding. So, I've never had success with tightening up the macros/counting calories/carbs whatever and loosing a pound or two a week.

    Just curious how one goes about it. And if I don't loose it, yes they may just kick me out of the country AND cut off my toes.

      Since you've been eating primal, I'd vote for trying the potato thing just in the interest of shaking things up. I tried it for 8 days in November, and although it didn't seem to be doing much right away weight-wise (hard to tell, as my scale died on day 3), I have since broken a major (6-mo) stall/creeping regain and am down another 22 lb after resuming LCHF Primal. I'm now looking to implement periodic potato "refeeds" and random higher-starch days as a useful tool.

      Now, if you want to switch that up with something like Gorbag's suggestion, you'd essentially be doing Stillman Quick Weight Loss or Lyle McDonald's protein-sparing modified fast (PSMF)...which have a reputation of being effective, but you may feel like total crap (watch your electrolytes!) and these low-carb/low-fat plans are very hard to stick to for long.

          Do that with a liter of Diet Coke and you can re-eat them all afternoon via burps.

          I suggest a generous amount of fresh ground pepper so that they are spicy!

          And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

            Sardines are a great combo of healthy fish oil and proteins and I use it almost daily myself. Very convenient making a "sardine-pasta" that can be used in soups and sauces etc, and no need for extra supplementing...
