None: There really in no safe way to lose 20 #s in 2 weeks. Goal is to lose 2 # a week via a healthy diet and exercise. Weight Watchers is a pretty good program.

Weight loss: Hi, losing 20 pounds in 2 wks is not recommended and also not practical. also with your diagnosis of postural Tachycardia the available weight loss pills (given under close supervision a weight loss specialist) could make your Tachycardia worse. The only OTC weight loss pill approved by FDA with not a big side effect profile is alli, which helps you adjust your diet because makes ur stool greasy.
