Dear Chubby
There are no instant or quick fixes for weight loss which will not be reversed the moment you stop doing the various way-out things that could achieve such a large loss in a short time. If you need to lose weight then eat a balanced low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight Loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy) and start doing plenty of exercise a) to promote weight loss and b) to target the tummy (ask Fitness Doc for a targeted exercise programme).
Good luck
